Description: Goodies Restaurant is winning a huge following among Batam’s Western expatriate community and Indonesian residents of Batam who enjoy good food in a magic setting at sensible prices.The Goodies chefs and kitchen facilities are capable of catering an 80-seat restaurant and large wedding parties or other functions. The Goodies bar is a popular meeting place for both Smiling Hill residents and visitors. The Goodies team has a very simple goal - to create the Number One restaurant in Batam for Western expatriate residents of the island, visitors from other countries and for local Indonesian residents who appreciate fine food and outstanding service.Goodies offers a choice of Western international dining, home-style favourites, Indonesian and Asian specialties, Italian pasta and pizzas, popular snacks, soups and salads, all-day breakfasts, and (unusually for Batam) a selection of classic desserts.The magic poolside setting and the ambiance created by the Bali-style treatment of the pool surrounds lends itself to further development as a public restaurant for people looking for somewhere special to dine.Goodies is becoming a popular venue for special corporate dinner parties, birthdays and other special occasions, as well as for regular dining. The restaurant is open from 7.30 am until 9.30 pm.

Goodie's is great. Nice staff, cold beer, good food...for once my hamburger actually tasted like a hamburger!! (Hard to find in Batam) I had heard rumors that you need to watch your bill - some of my colleages were overcharged a few times - but this problem seems to have been fixed, as they are now keeping a printout of...

Thank you for your positive review of Goodies. Glad you enjoyed the burger. We are a bit concerned that someone told you of being overcharged as we have not heard this before. The reason for the new sales slips is more for internal control, as customers were not always being charged for what they received. We look forward to your... More

Highly recommended - great food both eastern and western (they even make their own bread). Wonderful ambiance. Lovely obliging waitresses - who have a reasonable grasp of English and who try really hard to please you. Huge servings and high quality food. We will return after their icecream machine arrvies in December: )

Goodies is a little hyped due to the fact it caters to a majority of the expats who live/visit Batam. Food is "expat priced" and typically takes a long time to get your order. Staff are friendly and helpful. But what else can you say... It's a captive market and many expats are willing to pay the extra, regardless of... More

I have been visiting Goodies for about 7 years. The staff are friendly, attentive and efficient, and you always feel welcome. The variety and quality of the meals has steadily improved over the years, and you are always assured of getting a good meal at Goodies.

My friends and I went to Goodies for dinner. The restaurant sits on smiling hill and the view on the way up is awesome. Goodies is tucked away in a beautiful little suburb called Batur Ampur. The restaurant surrounds a swimming pool and there are different eating areas. Quite romantic at night. The menu is extensive and even includes a... More
