What could be better than meeting up with a fellow foodie and enjoying a meal together in one of Europe’s most iconic cities? Join one of our hosts and immerse yourselves in the food culture of Amsterdam together.

Whether you dine at a traditional Dutch restaurant, trendy Malaysian eatery or a cozy bistro, you and your host can discuss all things food - from the best spots to pick up fresh produce to the markets that locals frequent.

Exchange recipes that you can try out at home and learn a bit about the Dutch culture through conversation and immersing yourself in its flavors.

Branch out if you like, and try something globally-influenced or flavors that have come straight from Malaysia. It’s all about getting that insider’s peep into the cuisine scene of Amsterdam, and we’re here to make that happen!

Don’t forget to pick their brain on more fabulous restaurants and markets to visit during your stay.

  • Eat and drink like an Amsterdam local in a classic bistro, neighborhood restaurant or the latest trendy eatery

  • Discover the restaurants locals really frequent and try some classic dishes that are served there

  • Enjoy an authentic Dutch meal with your host by your side, sampling traditional dishes or globally influenced specialties

  • Enjoy a glass of wine, beer or soft drink with your meal

  • Enjoy learning about local Amsterdam life through food - this is a discursive experience and we encourage you to enjoy chatting to your host

  • Get tips and recommendations from your host about the best places to eat in the city

  • Swap recipes and favorite dishes - those at home will be wowed (or possibly shocked)

Reviews for Amsterdam


Our host was charming and attentive. The pace of the tour was just right and we got to see places we would not have found on our own. Well worth the experience!

Informational and engaging!

Our tour with Anna was perfect! She contacted us prior to our visit and she had a great plan prepared. As our day unfolded, we found that our interests changed and she created paths and conversations to follow our new ideas! She is a knowledgeable and engaging guide!
