Café Batavia is at the edge of a large plaza where people congregate and buskers play, great for people watching.
AS a group of 4 adults and 2 children we visited for lunch and had a most acceptable meal, the empty plates were a good sign. And the staff were most helpful.
On the downstairs wall and the staircase were many photos of the famous and infamous, the upstairs area had a great view from the balcony.
The upstairs bar was very grand. You could see the Dutch legacy in the building and décor style. I do believe the slightly faded charm is very appealing. Great atmosphere.
Would I visit again? Yes definitely, perhaps on a weekday when the plaza is not so crowded.
