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.

I had been given Chinese New Year off at short notice, living / working in Qingdao China during winter is cold, windy and grey. The best option for flights was direct to Singapore, so I organised a getaway at Palm Hill / Goodies, Batam, I had lived there for several months some years previous so wanted to go back and just chill out and take in a little sun.
On arrival I was given one of the villas near the restaurant, it was one bedroom with well-appointed kitchen and furnishings. The cost was approx $57 USD a night which is very reasonable.
The restaurant is located by the pool where you can enjoy the open air breeze and have a cool beer under a thatched roof.
The menu offers a large selection of well-proportioned western meals with a good range of Australian Beef.
There is now a BBQ area where guests can choose cuts of meat from a glass fronted refrigerator and roast to their liking.
The restaurant staff are courteous and well mannered, always service with a smile and the beer icy cold.
People of a diverse background visit Goodies, it’s a friendly relaxed environment where you can spend hours chatting to new friends, everybody has a story to tell.
I can recommend Goodies / Palm Hill for a meal, and long or short term accommodation stay.

Stayed at Goodies for 3 weeks and didn't know what to expect. I was pleasantly surprised with how much I enjoyed it.
The accommodation was great value, the staff were amazing and helped make the trip so memorable and the food was great value.
It has a great atmosphere with and lovely pool and outdoor dining, has every sport you can think of playing there, and has a great atmosphere of an evening. Even has a Ladies Pool Comp night.
Definitely going to go back!!!!!

This was a great place to stay with our family because we were all close but independent. The restaurant was very handy for snacks, breakfasts and dinner, and we loved the Christmas lunch. There is a nice outlook over the pool and Thursday night is ladies night. Enjoyable and handy.

Came to Goodies for a Xmas meal, it was arranged for ten people... I think they must have cooked for 20 as there was more than enough food, all of the lads were stuffed full and most passed on desert for this reason. Staff were excellent, friendly and full of smiles. Price was more than satisfactory. Also a lovely big pool at the resort which we will be going back to try out one afternoon.

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.
