“A big thank you to all of our awesome guests for continuing to leave us such kind feedback!”

Great restaurant, excellent food, nice staff. The lemon ice tea is excellent, the pork ribs and the grilled salmon were top notch. Location is great to and the ambient is really nice. Really shocked that a small island has restaurants as good as this.

The location is awesome. You can sit on the beach while drinking and eating the delicious food of the restaurant. For Indonesia, the portions are big and nice, it tastes good and the service is nice. The prices are average for Gili T.

Definitely recommend it.

Maybe the best cocktails on Gili T, I mean I haven’t tried them all, but they were great and a big range of choices. The food is also very good with plenty of options including vegan.

Great place for a decent meal. Love the gypsy burger and the potato wedges. I could spend all day in the pool bar drinking mango chilli margaritas and not regret a single moment.

This place serves the best coffee and smoothies on the island. The staff is incredibly friendly, upbeat, and quite simply kind. Fat Cats became our hub during our stay in Gili T. as members of our crew took diving classes while others (aka me) ate! Hugely appreciate their efforts in eliminating plastic use on the island #iamnotplastic

We absolutely loved this place, everything we ordered was so good and we ate there almost every day and I would definitely recommend the Beef tenderloin steak. It is so delicious and the staff is so friendly.

Fat Cats is one of my fave eateries! With choice of seating upstairs in the newly renovated dining area or right on the beach with the sand in your toes you have a delicious menu to choose from. Mostly western dishes but with a few of your favourite local must haves. Tons of vegan and vegetarian options (recommend the gypsy burger & poke bowl) but meat eater dishes as well (steak is bomb!) I have eaten here many times for dinner and cocktails before a night out or for lunch in between dives and I’m always satisfied with the fresh food. The attentive and funny staff make your dining experience that much better!

Love the Poke bowls, the burgers and the selection of smoothies and cocktails! Plus the view from the beach and the restaurant are some of the best on the island!

Fat Cats Bar and Restaurant Gili Trawangan


I’m lucky enough to come to Gili every 2 weeks and Fat Cats is my go to. As a vegan it’s sometimes very hard and quite tedious going to some restaurants as the choices are so limited or boring. Not at Fat Cats!!!! Vegans are totally spoilt for choice! Vegan poke bowls, tacos, burgers, Mac and cheese, you name it they’ve got it covered. Honestly this restaurant knows how to do food. It’s always totally delicious and the staff are so friendly and accommodating. So if you visit Gili, be sure to spend some time in this wonderful place! And don’t forget to sign up for an amazing underwater experience with Trawangan Dive underneath! This place is like my second home, I have made life long friends and we get to eat gorgeous, cruelty-free meals and explore the crystal clear waters. I’m super blessed and you can be too!

Frequently Asked Questions

If you have any question or special requests you can contact us via email: resto@trawangandive.com

What time does your breakfast buffet start & finish?

Our breakfast buffet is open to guests from 7 – 10am every day. Both our in-house guests and outside customers are welcome to enjoy the buffet which has a delicious selection of freshly cooked hot dishes, a pancake station, an egg station, cereals, fresh tropical fruit, homemade granola, Danish pastries, toast, homemade strawberry & pineapple jam. For outside guests we charge a fee of 100k per person to enjoy the buffet.

What happens if I am sick and unable to make it to breakfast before 10am?

Do not worry, if for any reason you are running late and miss the breakfast buffet, we will be happy to prepare a breakfast of your choice for you, with a tea or coffee. Please just ask one of the staff members to introduce you to a supervisor to ensure that you are looked after with the best service.

Do you host parties or large group bookings?

Yes! We love hosting events at Fat Cats as we have such a great space upstairs. For group dinner bookings we require a 24-hour notice period and a deposit of 500k rupiah for groups over 10. For groups of 15 people or less we can prepare a table on the beach and for groups larger than 15 people we would prepare a space upstairs. We also host private parties in our upstairs restaurant with different price packages depending on the requirements. For groups who are on a tight time frame we can offer lunch or dinner buffets for which we change per person, depending on requirements. For all restaurant bookings & enquiries please email: resto@trawagandive.com.

Can I pay with a foreign bank card?

Yes, at Fat Cats we accept both cash and card payments. You can pay with a foreign Visa or Mastercard, credit or debit card. For all foreign card payments, we charge a transaction fee of 3%, you will find that all businesses on the island also have this surcharge as we are charged by the bank for every foreign transaction. It’s very important that our customers are aware of this surcharge so that they have the choice to pay by cash if they wish. We also have an ATM within 100 meters of the restaurant.

Do you have gluten free options?

Yes, we have a selection of gluten free dishes on our menu, we can also adapt certain dishes as a gluten free option. We take our customer’s allergy requirements very seriously and we have a number of dishes suitable for vegans, vegetarians, coeliac and even people with extreme nut allergies. Please inform your server of any requirement or allergies that you have and they can show you our menu allergy chart and also give you some suitable recommendations. We would ask anyone with an extreme allergy to ask for the manager to ensure that we can communicate the information correctly to the kitchen and prepare a clean space for the preparation of your meal.

Is your kitchen Halal?

We do prepare predominantly Western cuisine in our kitchen which includes pork dishes, however all of the chicken and beef dishes that we serve are sourced from Halal companies. We ensure that the pork preparation is separated from the rest of the food in the kitchen.

Do you have a Happy Hour?

Yes, we have a happy hour everyday between the hours of 4 – 6pm. For happy hour we offer Small Bintang bottles for 25k & Large Bintang bottles for 35k. We also give a 15k discount for each cocktail on the menu. We have a special happy hour menu every month with cocktails available at a very discounted rate.

Why isn’t the service the same as a restaurant at home in my own country?

We give all of our staff regular training in Western restaurant standards which are taught by our Restaurant Manager who is from England, however there are a number of factors which need to be kept in mind when visiting our restaurant. The majority of our staff are from Lombok which is still very unaffected by tourism. A lot of them come straight from school and learn to speak English on the job and learn about tourism from scratch. They are very keen to learn and absolutely love having conversations with guests, but we ask our customers to adopt a little patience and understanding whilst communicating with them. There can sometimes be a miscommunication so it’s always best to ask to speak to a supervisor if you have a problem or a special request. Fat Cats also belongs to a hotel and a dive center, so the restaurant is always busy, not just with outside customers but with hotel guests, staff and dive customers. At lunch time we adopt a more relaxed attitude in the restaurant and invite guests to order at the bar, but in the evening, we take on a more formal dinner style service. We train our staff to be friendly and welcoming with a little more of a laid-back attitude than formal western restaurants as we are situated right on the beach, so please relax and enjoy 🙂
