Friendly staff and good food. We tried the cocktails too which were good (and in Happy Hour!) Wonderful view of the Sunset - and a short trip to the well photographed swings! Worth a visit, especially the lounging tables on the beach!

Freedom Bar is on a stretch of white sand with the most amazing views ever. The guys who worked here are super friendly and a big shout out to Bambang the manager who will go out of his way to help you. Food is ok for lunch but much better places for dinner. Freedom bar is a place to spend... More

I went to the Freedom Bar on a couple of nights while I was on Gili Air and the live acoustic entertainment was great and created an electric atmosphere. The performer Jefri took on requests and sang songs in different languages to the delight of tourists from around the world. I didn't try the drinks but the consistency of drinks... More

The location is amazing an they clean the place all the time. However my wine glass had lipsticks on it and the cocktail had almost no alcohol in it! There are much better places and therefore we quickly left.

This bar is in a great location on the beach for snorkelling and swimming. It has plenty of tables and big benches for groups as well as sun loungers on the beach. The manager Bambang (I have uploaded a picture of him) is an amazing guy who speaks great English, He is very helpful if you have any questions and... More

This isn't your place if you are looking for a nasi goreng. Very poor and no taste! Salads are big though, for 40.000. The treatment isn't remarkable neither and the WiFi is very bad! Wouldn't come back.

An easy beer or two can be sipped here. The manager has good language skills and very chatty to all customers. Whilst I was there one of the clientele was playing the tunes from his iPod. All very laid back if you are passing with a thirst.

Stopped by the Freedom Bar to get out of the heat for a drink. Had a few different fruit drinks, a coconut and some ice cream. Would definitely recommend as a great place to hang out!

Went here for lunch. Ordered burgers and a large bottle of water. Waiter brought us the water without glasses and looked slightly annoyed when I asked for glasses. Our burgers took very long time to arrive (even for Indonesian standards) and when they did, they weren't very appetizing - salad wasn't fresh, the beef patty was garnished with a piece... More
