A truly memorable meal needs not only time, love and the best of ingredients and good company. So let’s sit around the table and enjoy a great bistro dinner. In this four course dinner event we serve a choice of traditional European dishes created from fresh and local ingredients and following the seasons and weather of the moment. Aperitif, red and white wine, dessert wine, coffee and tea are included.
Share stories, listen to good music or even play some yourself. Admire the canal views and watch the boats pass by in one of the oldest parts of the historical city center, on the edge of the famous Red Light District.
Remember: there are no strangers, just friends we haven’t yet met. No better way than to meet them at our 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.
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!
