What you can expect

Tasty, healthy and local! Buzz words of today’s cuisine. But actually, that was always common practice in our country.

Easy to understand why: quality and taste of our local produce has always been outstanding. So our mothers learned how to prepare it in the most natural way with great meals as a result. So: really nothing wrong with an old-skool Dutch meal.

Funny enough: you very seldom find it served in restaurants. After more than 10 years experience as a hostess and chef in our own French-Mediterranean restaurant, we are now looking forward to receive you at our cozy home and surprise you with a perfect four-course classic dutch family menu.

First we will enjoy a get together drink (a so called ‘borrel’, a small glass of dutch gin) and some appetizers, followed by homemade bouillon, soup or salad.

After that we serve the maincourse including a glass of red wine or beer, and as finale we will bring a typical dutch dessert to the table. Coffee or tea will be served at the end of the meal.

So come on in and let the good times roll at Martine's table.

Enjoy your meal, share stories, listen to music, or even play some yourself! Admire the canal view 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.

Martines Table is located less than 5 min. walking distance from Amsterdam Central Station. Remember: there are no strangers, just friends you haven’t yet met.

Please note that all dinner events at Martine's Table most likely will not be a private dinner. Other people will sit at our table. Read the reviews and find out that our guests really like this idea a lot. We do organize private dinners, but only if your party is 6+.

Great passion for real food, fine drinks and lovely company. Creating delicious homey meals. Healthy, local and sustainable. That all describes Martine’s table best. And remember: there are no strangers, just friends we haven’t yet met. People from over 35 different countries e.g. USA, Israel, Ukraine, Kazachstan, Singapore, China, Taiwan, UK, Australia, Norway, France, Germany, Italy... to name only a few, found this to be true. No better way than to meet them at our table!

Me and my husband Olav gained lots of experience as host and chef in our own well known restaurant. We served wonderful French, Mediterranean, European and local Dutch cuisine with a contemporary twist. But after many exciting years we felt it was time to change the setting to a more personal approach. So now we are really happy to welcome you as guests in our own home.

Our home is
- a cosy, modern decorated appartment on a canal in one of the oldest parts of Amsterdam
- centrally located, less than 5 minutes walking distance from Central Station
- on the edge of the Red light district
- and as life time locals... we can tell you stories about Amsterdam you won’t find in tourist guides

Our food
We specialize in great dishes and meals based on European cooking traditions.
Memorable dishes and plates that take not only good ingredients and knowledge, but also lots of time and patience to prepare them, That is why you find them on restaurant tables less and less. That is a pity because they taste so well!

Our cooking reflects the cosmopolitan history of Amsterdam as well as local specialities, using fresh and local produce where possible (no, in our country we for example do not grow black pepper, or safron, that's imported. But the Dutch companies were the first to trade spices etc. all over the world).
On our table you can find a perfect Fishsoup from Southern France or a Dutch Fish Chowder.
The moutwatering Djuvec from former Yugoslavia or a great Ossobuco Milanese.
Sauerkraut with confit de Canard or a typical dutch Stamppot.
Our lush Moussaka or the sumptuous poched Fish with seasonal veggies.
Home smoked Haddock or smoked and grilled Pork Chops.
Our perfect Roast Lamb, Chicken and Beef are tender, juicy and tasty.
And of course we present real Dutch Family Dinners, for every interested traveler foodie a must eat,
Those family dinners you certainly will not find in the restaurant scene!
We create a wide variety of tempting desserts such as cakes, fruit tarts, our home made icecream and parfait, chocolat mousse, etc.

There is just too much to summarize.
One thing is for sure... no matter what you’ll find on our table, you are going to enjoy it.
We use local, seasonal and sustainable products as much as possible.
If you have special wishes: please let us know and we will figure out something good together.

So dear traveler, enjoy your meal.
Admire the canal view and see the boats pass by in one of the oldest parts of the historical city center.
Share stories, listen to the music (or play a little bit yourself).
Come on in and let the good times roll at Martine's table!"
