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.

Been here a few times now, for lunch with colleagues. Very extensive menu with lots of very tasty food.
I would definitely recommend the bonza burger :-)

“Fantastic brunch spot (and more!)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2012

This is one of our favorite Batam restaurants. With our children we especially love the morning brunch (served every day) as the menu is huge, includes much of our favorite western selections, and the 2 pools right next to the dining areas are very clean and fun for the kids. This is one of the only spots in town that serves real bacon :-) and other western treats. Kids love the pancakes and the new Eggs Benedict is a major score. The restaurant also has killer dinner menu and it's a popular expat spot. There are several large screen TVs with huge satellite selections so we watch a lot of sports specials from back home here. The management is always very accommodating. Service is great and in English. Overall atmosphere is very chill and it's a wonderful place to relax. We enjoy many weekend mornings with the family at Goody's. And many date nights too!

“The place to go”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2012

Goodies is in a unique location which gives you a holiday kind of feeling. Inside and outside seating around the pool and a big restaurant area for groups. Food from all over the world is on the menu. The staff is very friendly and helpful. This place is ideal for meetings, parties, weddings etc. Special occasions from every continent are celebrated in style with all the decorations and trimmings! Great place for locals and expats. I am a regular visitor and was also there on Valentines day which was superbly organised, with drinks, special menu and a lovely framed photograph to take away.
