Great food

We decided to go here for dinner due to the recommendations on tripadvisor - we were not disappointed. Our waitress was lovely; she had studied in the UK and had visited Edinburgh. She recommended one of the set meals (no 3 I think). The food was excellent and plentiful - we couldn't eat it... read more

Encouraged by the positive reviews, we booked here for 7.30 on the Friday, and were encouraged by all outside tables being full. Greeted by a staff member who in perfect English told us she was studying in the UK, and made some recommendations whilst taking drink orders, all seemed to be going well. However, it went downhill after that, mainly... More

Last week we opted for this restaurant because we wanted to have an indonesian dinner for a change. it is visited by locals and visitors alike and is very popular. Nice atmosphere, friendly staff and we enjoyed our bami and rijsttafel very much, Everything was very tasteful. After dinner we were offered a complimentary coffee. Taxi just outside, very convenient.... More

We went here during our visit in Arnhem. We ordered a menu for 2 which included starter and main dish for about 22€/person, drink separately. The staff were friendly, it seemed though that one of them wasnt that good at English, the place was rather dark but pretty cosy, not many people there during our visit. As starter we got... More

Amazing meal for 2. The staff helped us out and we went for their recommendation, which was great. A lot of small dishes so we got to try a lot of different flavors. Price seemed very reasonable considering how good the food was. Definitely going back soon.

If you want a fun evening with great food, and friendly and attentive staff, you will not be disappointed here. We went on a Sunday evening and had their smallest Ricetable menu. The place was buzzing and there was more than enough food for the 11 of us in the party. Thank you Batavia crew, we will be back.

Excellent service, amazing food, ultra friendly staff and owners. We have had lots of Indonesian food before (we are a New Zealander and a Sumbawan) but this was the greatest. When in Arnhem do as we did and go straight to the Batavia for your dinner and I hope you love it as we did both times.

Visited with 5 other cyclists. Staff were very helpful and provided us with English menus. The waitress in charge made minor recommendations to our order such as what rice to order. We followed her recommendations and were not disappointed! A lovely meal and pretty good value. We would recommend this place

We are Indonesians visiting Arnhem for a week and we visited Batavia 3 times. So we could vouch how authentic and good their food is. Despite the great food and friendly service, unfortunately we had to leave a bad review as we were completely disappointed on our last visit. As you may aware Batavia specialises in native Indonesian food. On... More

Came with my mother and sister visiting from Canada to try Some Indonesian cuisine. Food was flavorful, great spices, tender meats and great service. We recommend the goat or the beef dishes. We chose a 5 course menu to sample a lot of dishes and we're not disappointed - recommended for first timers.
