We have been treating ourselves to the fresh and flavoursome food at Ruby's for a couple of years now. This is why we keep coming back; nothing is frozen here, they only stock what is freshly available everyday and cook it until sold out. It's friendly, professional, super clean with some authentic recipes and flavours. We really feel nourished every... More

Quaint little Warung off the main drag. The jalapeño poppers are a standout and judging by the return visitors the potato croquettes are also popular! Wish we had another day here to try everything. Staff are lovely. We also had the Rendang curry,Ayam chicken and butter chicken. Good portions and our party of five very happy :)

Currently sitting here at Ruby's, just finished my chicken yellow curry and Gado Gado which my partner and I shared. This was yum and we will be coming back. Good staff and wonderful service, good ambience. Glad we checked Trip Advisor ratings that brought us here.

We LOVED Ruby's! Attentive staff, lovely owners and amazing food! We had the jalapeño poppers, the potato croquettes, the yellow curry, the green curry and the meatball penne - over two visits! Absolutely spot on. Fresh, quality ingredients in a friendly place. What more could you ask for?! Do not miss out on this place! We wanted to go a... More

I returned after visiting on my last trip here. Menu has been updated with some excellent new additions but the fabulous curries that the chef is famous for are still there, thank goodness. Such good value for money. GREAT fresh juices using the freshest fruit. Same friendly service. Will always return to work my way through the menu

We visited Ruby's for dinner after reading all the positive reviews, and once we found it (take a map!) we were blown away with the food. The jalapeño poppers are out of this world, you must try them.. Guaranteed they'll be the best you've ever had. For mains, my boyfriend fancied a burger and ordered it with cheddar rather than...

We visited Ruby's twice during our 6 night stay on Gili Air. Both times we were greeted with the typical Balinese smile. Service here is more efficient than at other places on the island and the owner does a good job of making sure guests have a good experience. Nice fresh juices and smoothies and homemade food. We had the... More

Description
Ruby's Cafe is owned and operated by Indonesian Chef Ruby. Her mission is to provide fresh homecooked with passion from experience from working overseas inspires her delicious curries using imported ingredients unique to her cafe and her time in top Italian restaurants in Bali comes through in her perfect pasta dishes. Every plate is cooked from scratch, spring rolls,croquettes, curries, only the Rendang is cooked before as it takes 2 hours, no portions pulled from the freezer and buzzed in Micro. Ruby's is a simple open air cafe dedicated to providing tasty FRESH food with love. Sorry even though many reviews advise booking we do not take reservations works better on a rolling basis, last oders 3.30 lunch and 9.30 dinner.
