Currently living on the island, and this is one of our favorite restaurants! The potatoe croquettes are nice, the jalapeno poppers are awesome, our favorite dish is the Indian butter chicken, we both order it every time, also has nice wine for a decent price.

Some of the best meals we had so far in Bali. Green curry was delicious and best burger we had in Asia.

Food here is really good, slightly more expensive for local food than other places but it is very tasty. Worth a visit for local food as well as the chicken wrap which is amazing.

Thank you Laura for taking time to review Ruby's , the only time i would respond in a way that you say is impolite is when I know it's factually incorrect and sponsored, which does happen.

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 orders 10.00 dinner.
