Café Batavia information
This historic restaurant overlooks Taman Fatahillah square in Kota, the old Dutch quarter. Its teak floors and art deco furnishings make a richly atmospheric setting, and it's an essential stop for a drink if you're in the area, just to soak up the colonial ambience. As the menu is a little over-fancy, it's best for lunch (the restaurant can also be quiet in the evening).
