This is still our favorite restaurant in the Netherlands. Love to return for a nice dinner. I wish it earned it's second star soon as it really deserves it. Food is absolutely fantastic just as the recommended wines. Dining rooms are beautiful as well as the tables. Cannot wait to return again. Definitely worth the trip even from a little... More

Everything was perfect: the service deserves a 10, the ambiance is cosy and the food absolutely delicious. We decided to take the three couses menu along with the house wine selection for each course. That revealed to be a perfect combination of tastes. We will definitely go back!

Went here for my girlfriend's birthday. We had 4 courses, which were complemented by a few small tastings in between. All food was delicious and fun to eat thanks to the original presentation and combination of flavours. Service was friendly and attentive. Overall a great night and we would recommend to go here if you have the chance.

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

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).
