Private, personal, and perfect Martine's Table is the perfect place for a private dinner with family and friends, or when you are looking for a different place for a business dinner. We hosted many families, travel groups and international business teams from e.g. Lufthansa, Nike, ABN Amro, VU-AMC, etc.
What to expect We offer 4 course meals, including drinks. Expect traditional European and Dutch dishes with a contemporary twist. Created from fresh, local, and seasonal ingredients, paired with thoughtfully selected wines. Sprinkled with lively conversation if you wish and some good background music for a relaxed and entertaining dinner.
Corona regulations For your and our safety and protection we follow the local Corona regulations. All guests should belong to the same household, traveling or working group and have to be healthy and in good condition. We do not share dinner with you at the same table, but of course we are there to cook, to talk and to entertain and to give you insights and tips regarding Amsterdam.
Our home We live in a cozy, 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.

And there is more... On special request we also create menus using less common ingredients, like game or shellfish. We also offer lunch, and oh yes.... Olav is a born local and an expert on Amsterdam. Olav always says: the whole city is the star, and I am going to make her shine to everyone! He is guiding a wonderful and really special Bike Tour that will take you away from the center of town, far beyond the so-called highlights. You will find more information on our own website.
