Are you looking for a restaurant that only serves the tastiest local and international produce? With an unparalleled wine cellar maintained by maitre-sommelier Willem Jan Klomp? Amidst a collection of paintings which is the envy of many a museum? A lunch or dinner at De Zwaan in Etten-Leur is always an amazing experience. Enjoy the charming atmosphere while chef Carlo Chantrel serves up his culinary fantasies. Your host, Roland Peijnenburg, will gladly tell you more about the collection of paintings bequathed to him by his grandfather - Opa Koek. But even if you have less time, don't hesitate to pay the seventeenth-century gabled house in the market square of Etten-Leur a visit.In house you will also find Bib Gourmand awarded bistro Het Lelijke Eendje (The Ugly Duckling).

This is a nice restaurant on the city centre of Etten Leur near Breda. It has a nice atmosphere as it is situated in an old building. The food - good but not to be remembered. They serve a very decent wine and have good advice.

Superb dining from beginning until very end. Amazing good with truly one of a kind, special little twist and turns. It's not just a dinner, it's truly an experience! Definitely the best Michelin restaurant we've been to. It has definitely earned its star.

very nice location and they serve excellent food. Service is friendly and helpfull. The only thing I didn't like is the price of the Bob-arrangement, too expensive for what you get. The rest is excellent !

The "ugly duckling" is located next to De Zwaan and is more of a bistro style restaurant. I have been here a few times now, and think it's time for a review. The menu is small but dishes are excellent. You most likely will not find better steak bearnaise anywhere. Enough menu options for kids too (and if not, they... More

We were there for the post christmas set lunch and it was fantastic! Even the kid's menu was very well thought out, child friendly, pretty and yummy. Service is prompt, friendly and not stiff like u would expect in a fine-dine restaurant, the whole atmosphere was very relaxed. And you get to enjoy the interesting artworks for free. I highly...
