We have rented an apartment and our landlady suggested this restaurant. It turned out to be a great find. We have just arrived today and have not yet settled to local time. It was a great relief to find that the restaurants in Amsterdam open early unlike much of Southern Europe. We arrived shortly after 4:30pm - the only other patrons were a pair of Americans also having an early dinner.
Meatballs are what is on the menu - if you don't want them don't come here. They do have vegetarian options, though. The routine is to settle first on how many - the set meals have either two or three included. You can have a variety or all one type.
I chose three meatballs - lamb in a yoghurt sauce. Really excellent. My wife had two pork meatballs in a spicy tomato sauce. Included in the meal is a choice of vegetable dishes - the choices change daily. We had spinach cooked in a soy sauce, fennel salad with citrus dressing and mashed carrots with pine nuts and popcorn (really!it was good!). Lastly we could choose an item from the rice/pasta/potato list. I had potatoes mashed with celeriac and they where phenomenal. My wife ordered a fried risotto ball - it must have been good because it disappeared very quickly.
We had a selection of Dutch and Belgian beers which went nicely with the meal. The bartender was friendly and attentive.It was a great experience. We sat at the bar - there is also table service. The place was beginning to fill up by the time we left at 6:00. Dinner for two - lots of good food and drink was €40,00. Be aware - they don't accept cash, only credit and debit.
And for something different try the Rabarcello liquer. Have you had limoncello? This the same idea but made with rhubarb - it is way better than you might expect!
