    Balletje was an excellent choice for traditional Dutch food. We all had slightly different combinations and they were all excellent. Recommend for a traditional Dutch meal.

    The restaurant specialises in a proper Dutch meatball dish. It really is excellent authentic fare served with knowledge and a smile. First rate.

    Very limited menu, which was fine, and could have meant efficient service. But it took forever to take our orders, get our meal, and pay. The restaurant management should take some lessons in efficiency in service. One person serving was not enough.

About the restaurant

Het restaurant aan de Kleine Houtstraat 13 gaat Balletje heten. Wij spraken met de 25-jarige eigenaar Ken(neth) Stoffers over het idee voor zijn eigen gehaktballenrestaurant: “Bij Balletje draait het allemaal om de gehaktbal. De bal wordt in Nederland nogal ondergewaardeerd vind ik. Verder dan een broodje bal komen we vaak niet in de horeca. Ik wil de gehaktbal de allure geven die het verdient.”

Hollands

Ken wil een op en top Hollands restaurant neerzetten. “Ik wil zoveel mogelijk producten van Nederlandse bodem. Niet alleen het eten, maar ook biertjes en de sterke drank komen straks allemaal uit Nederland.” Ook de inrichting wordt Hollands. “De inrichting wordt heel nostalgisch maar ook chique. Het meubilair is van hout en authentiek.”
