Simply marvellous

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.

We had waiter from Portugal who never stopped working, he truly loves seeing customers enjoying the uniqueness of this cuisine. The owners expressed gratitude for choosing their place to dine as we left, highly... More

The Netherlands doesn't really seem to have a national cuisine so they've adopted Indonesian food as their go to choice for a great meal out. They were the colonial masters of Indonesia for centuries and rijsttafel is the national dish. We chose the Batavia because it was close to our hotel and had a high TripAdvisor rating. The decor is... More

My husband and I went here last night. We had the weekend buffet. Chicken soup, 2 types pork satay and then unlimited buffet. Good selection of meat, vegetable, rice and other sauces and accompaniments. Staff were all very friendly and eager to ensure we had a good time. Meal was ended with complimentary tea or coffee. We were able to... More

As a first experience of Indonesian cuisine we enjoyed our meal. We chose one of their 'starter menus' and were not disappointed and left the restaurant very full and satisfied . The service was excellent- friendly and helpful and the teas or Coffees 'on the house' at the end was a good touch.

I went there together with my girlfriend for valentines day but the food was not really special. There was no wow factor.
