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.

“Nice Aussie Steak:)”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2015

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...

“Great western food, Relaxing atmosphere, clean and perfect for tourists”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2015

Firstly we went there on a Sunday and our son had a fantastic time.
He along with the other kids played in the big swimming pool which is far away from the restaurant meaning you can gave lunch in peace if you don't have kids and want a relaxing meal.
They had a live roving band singing music which wasn't overpowering and most of all the food was great.
We had the BBQ they put on - we chose rump steak and t- bone BBQ with Veges, baked potato and cake. It was also nice to see a great kids menu and the service we received on the day was very good. Perhaps if they had a drink ,end would be ideal as we don't drink alcohol so perhaps a mocktail menu, juice and soft drink for the non drinkers ? Our only gripe was the cakes were very ordinary and we didn't finish them, but then we haven't found many nice desserts on offer on the island to date anyway.
We wanted to go somewhere to have a nice western meal in a clean restaurant with a nice atmosphere to also cater for our son and we found it. I couldn't recommend this place more!

“Great staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2014

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
