Great restaurant for barbecues on Saturdays, have a drink on week days at night or even for a calm lunch during weekdays. Great variety of dishes, including traditional indonesian and western dishes.

Location is nice, it is tone of the most peculiar meeting places in Batam, rivers of beer and some acceptable beef and brownie. To eat well, believe me, better be going somewhere else.

This collection of kind of upgraded low cost houses has been turned into a sort of a sham hotel which is known as Smiling HIll, but IMO there is nothing to smile about here. I stayed there many times, but the last time saw me contract a case of food poisoning then being bundled almost senseless onto a ferry and... More

Batam is not the hub of the international cosmopolitan set, but if you are starving for a conversation in English then Goodies can provide you an ear full. If you are a family with children, lunch time would prove a winner along with the swimming pool and pizza for the children while you relax with a cold drink of choice... 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.
