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.

Nice place for food and relaxing

Absolutely loved being here. Spend a lot of time in the pool after my stomach was filled with a huge burger. My girlfriend loved the place as well. Will come back soon!

I think most people go here for the beers they provide constantly from 5 to 7 pm. The food is good but takes a long time to serve, hence why u cann drink all the beers u want IMO hehehe but it's a great place. Mostly foreigners who comes there. Not too many locals

Goodies used to be great - perhaps back then there was none like it. But times have changed and so has the competitive landscape. All said, their pizzas (for me ie) - remain the arguably best in Batam.

Good food and cold beer. Service was good and food was a reasonable price. We went there a couple of times with work and the standard was always good.

This is a great place for a decent steak fresh off the BBQ. The service and environment is relaxing and well managed by some expats. The only slight downer is the band, which wasn't great...

Always a nice night to stop at Goodies, a little out of the way but worth it, food is good, beer is cold and the staff are always happy to serve with a smile
