My wife and I enjoyed Wilde Zwijnen on a wet Sunday night in November. The dining room is comfortable, pretty large and filled with tables that seem to be made from reclaimed wood. They write your name on the table that has been set aside for you. It's a nice touch. We seemed to be the only non-Dutch in the... More

The food was great, the atmosphere nice and the wine tasted very good. Although it is quiet expensive it is worth your money. Great restaurant! Liked the detail that they wrote your names with chalk on the table :)

I went to Wilde Zwijnen with two friends. We had a great time. I opted for the three course surprise dinner. All three courses were tasty. Portion sizes are average on the smaller side. Good for me, since I wasn't too hungry. Service is good, they explain each course and leave you to it. All in all, I had a... More

I took my Sister in Law for her 30th birthday dinner as we were in Amsterdam for the weekend. The moment we walked in the restaurant had a real buzz to it. We were greeted with extremely friendly staff and given a delicious choice of cocktail as a first drink. We chose the chef's 'surprise' menu, which were 3 outstanding... More

My husband and I ate here on an overnight stop, travelling home from holiday. We had the chefs surprise menu with accompanying wines and it was absolutely superb. The menu was thoughtfully constructed, the wines delicious and the service helpful and friendly. I can safely say in 3 weeks holidaying in different parts of Europe this was the best meal... More
