    4 more images

    This restuarant is huge and is of local Indonesian architecture (see photos) which is located at Nagoya, the biggest town at Batam Island. It serves good Indonesian food at a reasonable price, and there is nice outdoor landscape for those who want to dine outdoors especially at night.

    I like the ambience in this restaurant. The space is big and my daughter had the whole world to herself, running errends.
    We paid IDR 217800 (USD 24) for lunch for 7 adults and 3 kids, which is cheap by any standards.
    AND THE FOOD WAS YUMMY NO DOUBTS.

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We enjoyed Great indonesia seafood. We had rice with greens sambal and big fish sambal with Avacado drinks. Extermely Delicious !!! We miss it lottttttttttttt!!!!!!!!!!

    Delicious sea food are the biggest attractions of Batam. Prawns, crabs, lobsters, shellfish are cooked in the different styles. Gong-gong is one of the local dish which you may want to try. There are many restaurants ready to serve you a sea food in the plate. Try some Indonesian dishes and I bet you won’t forget the delacacy in your lifetime.

    street food on Barelang Bridge

    by rajitravel Written Mar 28, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Here's one example by what I meant that the Barelang Bridge is causing some business for the locals ; )

    Look closely how large those crabs are in this packet. I'd sure would love to give 'em a try if only he didn't put 'em on the floor. But I guess if I stay in Indonesia long enough, I'll eventually give 'em a try ; )

    Favorite Dish: My friend advised me not to eat it as it's not neat seafood. So I dint try it.

    Padang food facing Panbil Mall

    by rajitravel Updated Mar 28, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Padang food is available here and I'd say it's still the best for the hungry

    Favorite Dish: As customary for padang style, all dishes are placed on the table and you need pay only for what you eat. We spent about 74,000 rupiahs for a hearty meal for four. That's about US$5.

    Avocado Drink with Chocolate

    by rajitravel Written Mar 28, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    When you are in Batam, you must try the local avocado fruit drink with chocolate. This drink is very thick and delicious. One of the place where you can find this drink is the Kediri Restaurant (see my VT tip).

    Favorite Dish: My mouthwatering Avocado Fruit drink with chocolate.

    Chilled tea for every meal

    by rajitravel Written Mar 28, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you're on the streets and not sure about the cleanliness, you can be safe to make this the
    drink to go with either your meal or simply to quench that thirst.

    Originating from Java, you can get Tehbotol Sosro anywhere in Indonesia. But as do any bottled drinks, leave the bottle behind after your drink. If you're on the go, tell the shop to pack it for you.

    Favorite Dish: This Tehbotol Sosro is one of my favourite to quench thrist in every meal or on the go. I forget to pack it to Singapore.

    The local food in Batam is hot, spicy but delicious. The dishes mainly revolves around curry, rice, mutton, seafood, vegetables, chilli and coconut. A local drink worth trying is the avocado fruit drink. Food and drinks at Batam are generally very cheap.

    Favorite Dish: Padang food is the most favourite food. I love to pack it to Singapore.

    No Name: Restaurant on the Water

    by 1Jez Written Mar 28, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is a real local restaurant.
    Really off the beaten track, you have to be taken here to know that it exists.
    The beach is lovely, the outlook to the sea is great. A great romantic place, especially at sunset.
    The seating area is over the sea.
    Choice of Seafood at local prices.
    Fried Rice and Noodles

    Its that sort of place you would take that special someone if you wanted a romantic time on a budget.

    Favorite Dish: I had the Special Noodles which were great.
    I cant rave about the seafood as I did not have it. But they welcomed me into the cooking area and I reckon thats a good sign and it was clean and simple.

    Seafood Restaurant at Batam View Beach Resort: Restaurant by the water

    by 1Jez Written Mar 28, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Wide Range of Seafood. Fresh Fish from the Tank, Crabs, Prawns and Vong Vong
    They also have the Standard rice and noodle dishes.

    Favorite Dish: Try the local Speciality Vong Vong, a Shell fish, that you need to skewer out with a tooth pick.
    It takes some skill. For English readers (they taste like winkles)
    For Australian readers, something like pipi's but in a conical shell.
    They come fresh boiled and are very unique.
    I had a Black Pepper Crab (on a different day) and it was also delicious. Cost was S$16 for the .5kg crab, seems reasonable to me.

  • Rezeki seafood restuarant: Best and Worst seafood restuarant

    by sairusi Updated Mar 9, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Tried Rezeki restuarant in batu besar.Most Taxi drivers would know. It probably isn't the cheapest seafood restuarant you can find in batam, but the food there was fantastic and resonably priced. There was a young chap David. Very good and honest recommendation.

    Ambience there wasn't as good as what every taxi driver recommend ( Golden Prawn 933).
    But who cares as long as u get good food, good service & good price.

    I wondered why every taxi driver in batam would recommend Golden Prawn 933 till I finally tried for curiosity's sake. Curiosity kills the cat! The service is bad, food is worse. Price is about 80% more costly than at Rezeki! I don't mind paying more for ambience and good food. But it just sucks big time! Lots of Mosquito, Lots of people singing off key like in karaoke. 5 "attitude problem" waitress standing behind me seems so very eager to clear my table even though it was an off-peak with lots of empty table. Definitely a 5 stars tourist rip-off place. No wonder the boss is opening a new hotel beside it.

    Hope this will help if u wonder why everyone recommend u to Golden Prawn 933.

    Seafood restaurants at the southern islands

    Seafood restaurant at Batam, Indonesia

    If you venture into the islands south of Batam Island (e.g. Pulau Sekikir, Pulau Rempang & Pulau Galang) via the bridges which connect them together, please check out the seafood restaurants here which are located on traditional wooden houses which jut out to the sea. The seafood here is cheap, tasty and you should try the coconut as well.
