We enjoyed the delicious roasted chicken dish. I also had a juice called the Ruby Red or something like that. Mmm! Nice location inland off the main street.

It's a normal warung with friendly service but the prices are shockingly high for just a warung. You pay 60-80 for a normal dish, few vegetarian options. We won't return.More

Not the local cheap but cheapish. Service was quick The pumpkin curry was excellent and I am not a vegeterian. The jalapeno poppers and fried chicken was also very good. For 2 beers, 1 starter and 2 mains we paid 280k.

We ate here two times on our recent visit. For lunch we had spring rolls, gado gado and green chicken curry which were all good but not amazing. However the Redang beef at our evening meal was exceptionally tough and needed to be cooked longer....More

Nice staff and great food at good prices. Would definitely come back! Only downside was that there was only one desert on the menu.

Great service. The food was incredibly fresh and made with care. We tried the spring rolls, the chicken wrap and gadu gadu. All were very nice - not 'knock out' - but very tasty, very fresh and I would definitely back up the recommendations. Just...More

Coming from Malaysia, we felt that there was too much hype as the food seemed "watered down" to be frank. Beef rendang was alright, ayam panggang was nothing special either. The only thing that was good was the jalapeno poppers. We had to ask for...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 orders 10.00 dinner.
