We came in for the four course surprise dinner last night. We had red snapper, followed by wild boar meat balls with a garlic and cream broth, then beef chump with amazing vegetables and then finally bread and butter pudding. It was so good we couldn't leave without booking a table for lunch today and unsurprisingly we opted for the... More

Went to dinner here while visiting friends that live nearby. Was totally blown away and the talent of chefs and the food we got. Definitely need a reservation on the weekend. Would highly recommend the tasting menu. Loved the food and wine, would recommend if you're looking for great food in a fun atmosphere

Wilde Zwijnen offers dishes which are a little different from other restaurants which is great. The food is very tasty, nice wines to match and good & relaxed service.

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
