A special bonus to our trip to Amsterdam was a chance to visit a local resident for a wonderful dinner. It was the kind of behind the scenes experience that adds so much to travel. Simon hosted us with an excellent meal, great wines and friendly conversations. The visit started in his very interesting apartment with snacks and wine as we got to know each other. Then as he cooked the conversation continued until the salad of grilled vegetables was served at table. This was followed by the main dish of duck on a bed of spinach and eventually a lovely dessert of molten chocolate and cream. Simon knows his wines and is very charming. We talked of so many things. It was a night to remember and think about for a long time. Thank you Simon.

What a fantastic night. Simon is an excellent chef and the perfect host. I very much enjoyed spending the evening with both Simon and Rein in their lovely home.

All 3 courses were served with a great paired wine. It made for a wonderful and enjoyable experience. I would definitely recommend this dinner to single travellers and will as larger groups.

Simon and Rein are amazing hosts with a great flair for food and wine. Amazing flavors and a beautiful home make for the perfect evening. I’m glad we booked this for the first full day we were in Amsterdam as they were able to tell us all of the places we should see and what restaurants to visit based on our taste and desires. If you want a great dinner and a fun evening this one is for you.

My husband and I felt as if we were spending an incredible dinner with great, long time friends! Simon’s delicious food was expertly paired with Rein’s wine selections. We WILL do this again!

We had a WONDERFUL time with Simon! We stayed in the Rembrandtplein area so we took Tram 24 which was about a 30 minute ride to get to his apartment. It was very easy to get to. He is an excellent Chef and was such a joy to visit with and talk about the Netherlands and the Dutch people. The wine was excellent too! Simon doesn't make you feel rushed and when you're there, you really feel as though you're visiting with a friend. We even enjoyed playing with his 2 VERY adorable wiry long haired dachshunds! It made me miss my dog in the U.S. so much! I would recommend this home dinner and wine pairing to everyone!
