Lovely view, great service and yummy cocktails made by Deddy. We really enjoyed it and came three times while on our stay in Gili Air. Staff had time to chat with you, lovely atmosphere and best cocktails on the island. Must visit.

Pretty good service, we were there during Ramadan so the staff was (for understandable reasons) a bit tired during fasting. Still friendly! Not the best breakfast, but the view definitely makes up for that! Very good lunch, try the baguettes and you won't be disappointed.More

Nice tables right at the waterfront! The restaurant serves also a scuba tour operator which is a good sign of quality, usually. Nice Thai dishes ie. curries and spicy stir fries. Beer was freezing cold which we liked. Local foods were equally satisfying. Service pretty...More

The Waterfront has lovely sea views and the food is OK, not super special but tasty and not too expensive.

The spring rolls are really tasty and you get a pretty nice view. We ordered the pad thai and green curry and both were extremely spicy... I like spicy food but these were so so spicy that our lips got swollen and it was hard...More
