When I checked tripadvisor in late January before our visit Kez's bakery was listed in the top 5 restaurants (checked ranking quite a few times, so I'm not mistaken) - now when I log into tripadvisor to write this review (1 week later) it's listed as #26! Can't imagine how the tripadvisor ranking changed so suddenly (?) Anyway wish we could have seen this new ranking before we visited Batam - because it definitely isn't a top 5 restaurant in Batam.
We visited for dinner on a Friday - only a couple of other people were there in the restaurant. There was open layout of breads, pastries and a few cakes - didn't look anything special so we didn't try them and decided to go straight for the menu.
Ordered a risotto and a chicken dish. The risotto was ok, the chicken wasn't even ok. Chicken was either not cooked enough or had been in the fridge and just been mirowaved. We also ordered a couple of drinks and the dessert of the day (Japanese stones). The dessert was also disappointing. After having read some good review in tripadvisor we decided to try at least one more dish and got a slice of cake to go. This was actually decent - nothing to rave about but much better than the other dishes we had at Kez. Overall everything cost us nearly 50 singapore dollars (after conversion) - this was way too pricey when looking at all the other delicious food we tried in Batam at much better prices. Maybe we should have just kept to trying the cakes and other bakery items...
The staff were friendly and helpful. The setting in the restaurant was quite nice as well.
