Celebrating a special occasion? Book the whole table
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?

We had a fabulous dinner at Martine and Olav’s. Amazing food and very hospitable. We had just finished a 35 K bike ride through North Holland so we were a bit compromised in terms of energy. Our apologizes to the host and hostess. We highly recommend this experience for parties with a large group of friends.
We recently spent a lovely evening with Martine and Olav and 6 of our friends during our pre-river cruise weekend in Amsterdam. It was very much like having dinner with good friends, if only your good friends were excellent cooks! The apartment looks over one of the oldest canals in Amsterdam and is very easy to find. Our meal of lamb shank, ratatouille, and potatoes was amazing, as were the appetizers and lentil soup. The crowning glory was a gluten free pear tart which was simply the best gluten free dessert we have ever tasted. The wines paired with the meal were excellent as was the Bosredon Monbazillac dessert wine. They handled the gluten free needs of the two celiac members of our group flawlessly. Do yourself a favor and visit Martine and Olav on your next trip to Amsterdam. It will be one of your most memorable experiences in this beautiful city.
I thoroughly enjoyed my dinner with Martine. Both she and her husband, Olav, are very welcoming as is their comfortable home. Several other guests joined us for dinner, which made for lively conversation while we ate an outstanding dinner. This was my first experience with EatWith. It made my visit to Amsterdam extra special and will be hard to top when I use EatWith on future travels.
