Frequently asked questions

1. What are the benefits of booking through

When you book a dinner at, you are sure to be greeted by hosts selected for their sense of hospitality, around a quality meal, prepared exclusively with fresh products (see our Quality Charter). With MamazSocialFood, you can choose your dinner and hosts based on a number of criteria. It’s a way to share cultural perspectives, anecdotes and common interests (hobbies, sports, travel, professional activities, etc.) around a menu. It’s an opportunity to discover a new way of life, immerse yourself in a local culture and establish new friendly contacts.

2. How does the online booking system work?

It is very simple. Click on the dinner of your choice. Select the number of guests and book your dinner directly by clicking on the “Book this dinner” button.

You will be redirected to the payment page of your dinner with a summary of your order. Enter your credit card details and confirm your prepayment. The payment will be effective only after validation of your reservation request by the host. You will then receive a confirmation email. Once the booking has been made, you will receive the specific details of the dinner (address and telephone) by email and/or SMS text message.

3. Is the connection between hosts and guests charged?

Registration to the site MamazSocialFood is totally free. When you book a dinner, we include a reservation fee directly in the price of the dinner. There is no surprise.
