We know you have heard the news: Batam is now welcoming international travelers visiting from Singapore. Now is your chance to get the holiday you’ve always dreamed of. While in Batam, don’t forget to indulge your palate with seafood, their most renowned signature cuisine. There are many best restaurants in Batam serving seafood, but we recommend that you try these six places for an unforgettable dining experience!
Sei Enam Seafood has offered time-tested seafood specialties since the 1970s. The seafood dishes served here vary, but each of them is special in their own way. We totally recommend that you try “kepiting saus sei enam”, “sotong goreng asam”, “udang kipas merica putih” and “kakap asam pedas”. It is currently the best rated Batam seafood restaurant on TripAdvisor.

There’s no other place more suitable to enjoy prawn in Batam other than Golden Prawn 933. It is located in the eastern bay of the island and dubbed as the “heaven of the seafood delicacies” by everyone who has ever experienced it. This restaurant served many other seafood dishes such as crab, cuttlefish, and shrimp but the main attraction here is the must try seafood in Batam, which is the prawn.
