I have been to Batavia many times already and I would go back without a doubt. Food is good, portions are big and we are always warmly welcomed. Try one of the Rijstafels (kinda dim sum) to have a taste of everything. I really like the "basic" Rijstafel Indonesia which will give you a great overview of their know-how. Be... More

We ordered a meal that is served in ample dishes, 3 different flavors of meat. Very yammy and satisfying. Got a taste of 8 different kind of dishes with the price of one. Interesting new experience for people who are looking for a different experience.

If you are to be in Arnhem and don't know what to eat or where to go, don't hesitate to go there you won't be disappointed. The service is great with people really giving you some good advice and taking care of you. Food is good and seems to stick to Indonesian tastes, which is quite important!

I went there as a solo business traveler based on the critics of TripAdvisor. The welcoming was very warm from the waiter. I didn't know the plates so I asked for suggestions in order to discover the Indonesian cuisine. I was offered the menu that includes appetizers and many small dishes as main plates, which was delicious. To conclude, very... More

What a joyful experience our dinner at the Batavia was! We cannot recommend this restaurant warmly enough. Not quite sure how busy the restaurant would be during the Easter holiday we booked our table online on their website (easy). The waitress, or I should rather use the expression hostess, greeted us warmly, led us to a beautifully laid table and... More

Holland has a tradition with Indonesian food, for Indonesia has been a Dutch colony for many years. There are many Chinese restaurants who also serve Indonesian meals, but it is not the real Indofood we like up here. This restaurant is very good, try the Saté menu. it is outstanding.

Been here twice to have dinner with some Indonesian and European friends. All of them loved the foods. At first we were blown away by the warmth of the javanese decoration in this place with the whole paintings, angklung, wayang, etc. Rendang and udang batavia were recommended menu to try. I was just wondering if they serve a real Padangnese... More

We wandered in. He liked the decor, she liked the menu. We ordered two very different dinners and traded bites. We will go back. Note: People in a hurry may be disconcerted at the pace. Hungry people who want to sit and chat and pass an hour or two will enjoy themselves.

What I missed most from Indonesia after a few months away is the food, and I was very excited the first time I saw a familiar name of the restaurant. The staff was very welcoming and suddenly we found that the atmosphere was very homy since they use javanese decoration. The food was great, even though we think that it... More
