About your host, Martine: "My husband Olav and I love cooking and entertaining, and we believe that there are no strangers, just friends we haven't met yet. We decided to sell our well-known French restaurant in Amsterdam and repurposed our passion for hospitality and gastronomy by organizing dining experiences in our own home."

Joy of Life European Bistro Dinner
Experience true Joie de Vivre (the joy of life) with us. As a former hostess and cook in our own French restaurant we are now looking forward to receive you at our cosy home and surprise you with a traditional Europan 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. Aperitif, red and white wine, dessert wine, coffee and tea are included.

A really good and homey meal needs not only time, love and the best of ingredients but also and maybe foremost good company. So let’s sit around the table and enjoy the food. Share stories, listen to good 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.

Remember: there are no strangers, just friends we haven’t yet met.
No better way than to meet them at our table!
