Pleased to meet you! My husband Olav and I are born locals. We love cooking and entertaining. And we believe that there are no strangers, just friends we haven't met yet. So after we decided to sell our well known and busy traditional French restaurant in Amsterdam, we repurposed our passion for hospitality and gastronomy by organizing dining experiences in a more intimate setting: in our own home! What to expect We cook 4 course meals of traditional European or Dutch dishes, with a contemporary twist. Created from fresh, local and seasonal ingredients, paired with thoughtfully selected wines. Sprinkled with lively conversation and some good background music for a relaxed and entertaining home dinner. Don't expect huge crowds. Our communal table dinners count up to 8 - 9 guests max. We want our dinners to be a personal and special experience to everyone. Where We live in a cosy, modern decorated apartment in the heart of Amsterdam, overlooking the oldest canal in the city. We are located less than 5 min. walking distance from the Dam and the Central Station. Easy to reach from any place in Amsterdam. Guests and reviews Martine's Table took off in March 2016 and since then we hosted guests from over 60 countries from all over the world. We really love what we are doing now, and the guest reviews on TripAdvisor and EatWith are great. We are the nr. 1 spot in Amsterdam on TripAdvisor since October 2017 and were awarded with the TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence 2018. Pretty amazing! Ready to join us and our other guests? Book on EatWith now. If your group is larger than 8, please contact us first: we can set up a special group dinner for you.

Oh, come on now. How can a pleasure be guilty!
Wir hatten einen wirklich wunderbaren Abend bei Martine und Olav, die hervorragende Gastgeber sind. Selbst mein Mann, der zuvor große Bedenken hatte sich bei Fremden einzuladen, hat sich rundum wohl gefühlt. Martines Tipps für Kulinarik und Erlebnis haben uns in den folgenden Tagen sehr geholfen, dass allzu touristische Amsterdam zu umgehen. Und das Essen war selbstverständlich auch sehr gut. Herzlichen Dank an Martine und Olav
Everything about our dinner at Martine's was wonderful. We had a transportation problem and were late, and she was so kind and gracious even though I am sure we messed up the timing of her cooking! The meal was delightful and delicious, the company was excellent, and it was such a special treat to spend time in a private home with such lovely hosts. If Martine and Olav have an opening while you are in Amsterdam don't hesitate- grab it now!
