Food in Batam Islands is one of the many reasons people visit this beautiful paradise. The island has various food stalls lined up on the footpath, selling a wide variety of seafood and authentic Indonesian cuisines like Nasi Goreng, etc. or some awesome cafes & bars where you can enjoy live music over a couple of drink and sumptuous cuisines. One such beautiful cafe & bar in Batam Islands is the Oregano Cafe & Bar.
During my recent visit to Singapore, I also visited the beautiful Batam Islands, which are just 45-minutes of ferry ride away from Singapore.

The ground floor is a dedicated cafe with covered with sofas and bean bags along with a small display area filled with delicious pastries, cakes and much more.

The second floor is the place where you can enjoy some great live music with some really nice drinks. Yes, the second floor has a bar counter and a small stage where musicians perform live. And the third floor is a large space and hence if you are in a group large group and want some space for yourself, the third floor is the place to go. However, in some space, you cannot smoke but apart from that smoking is allowed everywhere.

Food at Oregano Cafe & Bar
Food at Oregano Cafe & Bar was delicious and decently priced. During my visit to the cafe, I ordered Kwetiau Goreng Ayam, which tasted a little like Pad Thai only and was rice noodles with seafood, chicken, and veggies. Apart from this, I had long island ice and Bintang beer. And my friend Ajay had Fu Yung Hai, which was a vegetarian dish with veggies and rice and whose taste I do not remember.
Our total damage was IDR 244,200, which is around USD 20. Generally, I liked the cafe not only because of its food and drinks but also because of its beautiful ambiance, service, and location.
So, whenever you visit Batam Islands, do not forget to visit the Oregano Cafe & Bar. You can easily find it just beside the Nagoya Hill Hotel.
