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.

“Hidden secret”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013

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 BBQ. Food was good and the staff were very helpful and friendly.

“Good food, nice people”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2012

The restaurant has both "American tasted food" and local food. We tried the Luncheon Special, which is value for money and the taste was excellent too!
The way there is a bit difficult to get in. If u travel from Singapore, the best way to go is with Berlian/ Wave Master which arrives at Habor Bay ferry terminal. The taxi costs us 50k INR (1 $S = INR 7,600)
The exchange rate is better in Batam than in Singapore.
