Restaurant at Karma Kayak was in perfect location and had great atmosphere. Food was good and reasonably priced. Tapas was disappointing tough.

Wow loved it perfect, eco friendly, amazing staff, location perfect, rooms affordable and for me perfect location close enough to everything walking or on a bike, far enough away to have peace and quiet and avoid the hustle and bustle of the main areas. The snorkeling right off the beach in front of hotel is incredible, the owners and staff were friendly warm and genuine. We hired snorkeling gear from the hotel and half of the not so much money went to the ecology fund for the island, environmental responsibility was a nice touch, awesome restaurant for dinner and tapas, and equally great spot to watch the sunrise and sunsets. I have fallen in love with Gili T and would visit Karma Kayak again if you want luxury spend a little more and get a few extra convinces if you want friendly responsible and in tune with the planet and the locals choose Karma Kayak please treat this island well it needs to stay as lovely and special as it is.

We stayed at Karma Kayak for six nights and thoroughly enjoyed it. Getting into town takes about 15 minutes walk along the beach, but you are rewarded with a cozy little resort in a quiet part of the island and a glorious view of the sunset, for which they put out lights in the trees along the beach and candles.
Everything was very clean, all of the staff friendly and helpful. The breakfast has different options and was very good, we also had some tapas, which we enjoyed.
They rent out mask and snorkel sets at 60k (and donate half to the Gili Eco Trust) and provide you with crocs/reef shoes (no fins).
We'd read that you don't get beach towels, this is not (or no longer) true.
Towels, sheets and beach towels are changed every few days on request.

We didn't order tapas, since is the main plate of the restaurant maybe was our bad to choose something else.
I order pasta with meatballs in salse bolognese. It had no enough salse so most of the pasta was just the pasta, without salse. And it also didn't taste special at all.
My boyfriend's meat was also based on meatballs but he was also disappointed with the taste.
I asked for salt and they told us that was one of the things that was on the table but then we found it was actually cheese. So we have to ask for it again.
They forgot to give me a knife for the meatballs and they took a long time to come for the money of the payment of the check.
The sangría was amazing and the staff super friendly.

Nice staff and great location for a quiet and peaceful dinner. Many candles light and beach fire to make you feel relax. Staff is nice and food is great. We sat on the beach at the end of the dinner close to the fire and finished our bottle of wine in a very nice romantic atmosphere.
