Eat and meet

Gili Meno

There is a smattering of places all the way around the island, these are some that stood out.

  • Sunset Gecko
    4.5 stars

    Best on the island

    Northeast coast

    It's easy to be straight to the point with Sunset Gecko — this is the best food on Gili Meno. It's one thing for a menu to claim a restaurant is famous for something, but in the case of Sunset Gecko, they've earned it. It's not cheap, but certainly worth your money — try the seafood curry ... read more

  • Mallias Child

Looking at Dayak, it's easy to think it could blow away in the next storm, but the drinks are good and cheap and come with a complimentary (heavy) dose of Marley and the usual ... read more

  • Rust
    3 stars

    Popular seaside eating

    Near the boat landing

    Of the two main boat landing restaurants, this was our preferred option. Simple food, cold drinks and reasonable prices. While Rust has a proper restaurant area right by the water, the individual salas, with their low-slung tables and soft pillows, were our preferred eating area. Service can be ... read more
