Any expatriates living in Amsterdam and wishing to make new friends may decide to attend the Social Dining Expat Week at the end of this month.
The event will run from February 25th to March 1st and allows expats to enjoy high quality food at a reasonable price, but just as importantly meet new people.
A number of top restaurants will be offering multiple course meals for €19 (£16.40) as part of the initiative, where participants join groups of others over dinner.
To get involved expats must go to the organisation's website, where they will find a list of the restaurants taking part in the event.
The number of diners per table will also be displayed (between five and ten) and how many seats are still available.
Profiles of the guests already registered to tables, as well as the food on offer for the evening, will accompany this information, helping expats to decide which meals to sign up to.
Some of the meals, but not all, will be themed as a way to help initiate conversation around the table and establish common interests between guests.
Jesse van der Meulen, founder of Social Dining, said: "The Social Dining Expat Week offers everyone the opportunity to meet other expats and enjoy incredible food at affordable prices.
"It’s a great dining experience for everyone, and we encourage expats and internationals to make a reservation today."
Since meeting people in a foreign country can be difficult, this represents an opportunity for expats to extend their social circles.
It could be a particularly useful tool for those who are new to Amsterdam and want to meet people outside of their workplace.
Foodies will also get to experience new restaurants which could eventually become favourites in the future.
Social Dining was begun last year and as a relatively new concept it is mainly based in Amsterdam, Rotterdam and The Hague, but could take off and be rolled out to other destinations.
