I am only giving this restaurant four stars because the food is in fact quite excellent. We started our dinner outside and had our appetizers when it started to rain. This is not a surprising turn of events in Amsterdam. We were all moved inside, and then our party was simply completely forgotten. Almost two hours after we came inside, someone must have told the manager, because he came over to apologize. (Maybe the food tasted wonderful because we were so hungry.) We got complimentary desserts. Every restaurant has glitches sometimes, but this was beyond acceptable for a restaurant of this quality.

we went for the "surprise menu" and we were surprised indeed. A very good starter, a fabulous soup of beetroot (hope they have it on their regular menu - want to taste this again), a correct main course and one of the best pannacotta I've ever eaten. Correct and friendly staff and a nice winelist

this restaurant is truly an excellent place to eat in Amsterdam. Considering the eye watering prices in the city centre for really what is less than average quality food, I just could not believe that this restaurant was available. Ok it is not close to the centre but it is easily reachable with public transport. We visited this place with a big group (12), the service was excellent. The wine was good. We went for their surprise menu, which was really good value. They serve every dish with a long explanation from the waiter, who comes down on his knees (i found this a very personable approach) to tell you how your food is made and the ingredients. We paid like 40 euros for a 3 course meal ( all the courses were delicious) with wine. Quality of this food and service is worthy of £70 per person I would say if this restaurant was in the centre or somewhere like in London. I would definitely make the journey every time I vist Amsterdam to eat in this place. Thank you for the great experience!!!

After checking out food blogs and articles on Amsterdam, I took a chance on Wilde Zwijnen, and it proved an exceptional choice. Although this restaurant required a cab from central city, the food was exceptional, wine list great, service excellent (thank you Vincent!). Our hotel concierge asked how I found it because this is a local favorite. This is a place for foodies, fairly priced, well worth the visit.

If it's nice out, ask for outdoor seating, no one "in the know" sits inside on a nice night!
