We heard about this type of event, eating with a group in someone's home, from friends who tried it in Rome. Martine and her husband were wonderful hosts for the city of Amsterdam as well as excellent chefs. Our group of six joined another couple for a classic dutch dinner and came away with a new appreciation for dutch food and living. This is a much better experience than just finding a good restaurant as the sharing and conversation as well as the food make this an A+ evening.

We were a small group and were treated as if we were old friends. Martine and Olaf were warm, gracious hosts. We were all impressed with the food, the talk and the inviting atmosphere. They made the Dutch fare interesting and flavourful. I hope to return and try one of their other menu options. So yes, we would definitely return and we recommend it!

M&O are very charming. We have a classic dutch meal and great conversation. Ask a question, they had an answer. Well worth an evening.

We were a group of 11 women traveling together when we dined with Martine and Olav.
Olav came to our hotel and while walking us to their home told us some interesting facts about Amsterdam. Turns out Olav also gives walking tours and I wish we had known and taken one with him. I was especially interested to sample home food as opposed to restaurant food and was not disappointed. Martine and Olav shared details of their lives and once we found out they were both musicians, we insisted that Olav play his guitar and that Martine sing along. We all ended up singing a rendition of Hotel Califonia that would make the Eagles laugh as did we as Olav kindly shepherded us back to our hotel. It was one of the highlight evenings of our Amsterdam visit. One can always eat a delicious meal in a restaurant but one cannot always share in the lives of the locals. I couldn't recommend this experience more highly.

My husband and I had the pleasure of dining at Martine's Table this past Saturday night with our hosts Martine & Olaf and three other couples. We were looking forward to the night, but a bit apprehensive, as we had never booked with Eatwith before. The evening was great - delicious food, along with engaging conversations around the table throughout the entire night. Martine and Olaf were both very interesting and also wonderful hosts. I would highly recommend this dining experience!
