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... More

Loud music, drunk expats and trophy girlfriends seemed main clientel, definitely not for familys, overly freindly management.

Great menu of western and local indo dishes! Best quality of food in Batam. Love the nightly LIVE music. Fridays was FREE beer from 5:30pm to 7pm. Good to meet the local expats!

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

Have been many times to Goodies - the menu is extensive and all tastes are catered for, a good selection of alcohol but still no cider which is a shame. The staff are great, the management / owners are on the scene but have never spoken to me in more than 10 visits now, disappointing but their choice! A great... More

I have been living in Batam for 11 years now. For the past 4-5 years I have been frequenting Goodies. The food there is simply some of the best in Batam. They know how to make food that I, as a Westerner, enjoy. It is that simple! The atmosphere is also very nice! Makes a great date place for those... More

I have been coming to Batam for years for business. I have always heard of this place but I never did go until yesterday. Wow! It's some of the very best food I have had in Batam. Huge menu. American/Indian/Indonesian, lots to chose from. Quite a cool spot too with the pool in the middle of the compound. Open air... More

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

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.
