The popularity of walking dining

Throughout the years has the concept of walking dining gained popularity. The atmosphere is usually dynamic, informal and flexible which translates in clear advantages. There is no fixed seating arrangement, making it easier to move around and talk to different people, this opens the opportunity to meet other people and make new contacts.

Eat what you like from the dishes presented and skip what is not to your liking. Eat as much as you like without feeling embarrassed not finishing your plate.

The dynamic of this style of dining looks more like a reception, there is however a clear difference between the two, walking dinners menus have the sequence of starter, main and dessert, compared to a reception where mainly snack like dishes are served.

The portions are small and easy to handle, usually people eat more than one of the different dishes offered.

Slight disadvantage is that the costs of a walking dinner are a bit higher than for regular dinners due to intensity of staff on site.

  1. Please could you provide an offer for a buffet dinner for my 40th birthday and an example menu?
    Most of the 55 guests are meat-eaters, with 5 vegans and 3 vegetarian. One of the vegans is gluten intolerant.
    I have a table that is 2.2m x 1m.
    I will not need any additional people to serve the food.
    Providing extra table, plates and cutlery would be useful.

  2. I am looking for a walking dinner option in Amsterdam for 160 peaple, if you can send me a quote starts on tray: 3 options, served small portions in cup, easy to eat while standing, mingling.
    main: with buffet style served on trays or also handy for people standing.
    2/3 options. dessert: again on trays would be great
    drinks: beer, wine and soft drinks.
