You have to be an "easy eater", because the menu does not contain the ordinary dishes, and the choice is limited. But if you want to eat Dutch food and something special.... go there. Although the name in English is "wild pigs" I had a wunderful vegetarian dish. And the desert was heaven! Service is good, not excellent. It's easy... More

Me and my best friend love to go to a special restaurant every month. We decided to choose Wilde Zwijnen for last evening. The menu was really special and the service really welcoming. We had a starter and a main each. The quality of the meat was really high and well cooked. Considering the standard of this city, WZ totally... More

Went here with a business acquaintance based on a recommendation and was pleasantly surprised. Very cosy restaurant and the 3-course Chef's Menu was delicious. Service was friendly but perhaps a bit slow. Great value for money. Reservation is essential.

Not only the layout of the restaurant space was interesting to explore, also the concept as a whole did not leave any doubts that this restaurant is truly one of the top 3 outside the center area of Amsterdam. Every course of our chef's menu (surprise dishes, no choice need to be made) was of high quality regarding ingredients, as... More

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 :)
