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 1: Dinner
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. And we want our dinners to be a personal and unforgettable experience to everyone. So don't expect huge crowds, our communal table dinners count up to 6 guests max.
What to expect 2: Lunch & Lecture
And we would like to show and share our love for our home city with you, traveler! In addition to the dinners we offer Lunch & Lecture. While Martine cooks and provides a 3-course lunch, Olav tells the incredible story of Amsterdam from their own perspective, as born Amsterdammers, who were looking for a place to live forty years ago and ended up as squatters in the abandoned and dilapidated building of a former printing house in the heart of the city. That’s where they still live now, overlooking the oldest canal in the city.
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, and recommended as "Traveller's Choice, The Best of The Best" several years in a row. Pretty amazing!
We are looking forward to meet you... are you ready to join us and our other guests?
