Faysel, Frenk & Julia have known each other for 25 years and each have many many years of hospitality experience and it shows! We chose to check this place out because we'd heard many locals rave about it and yes, also because they chalk your name on the table by way of making a reservation which I think is ever so charming.. 'Wild Boars' does (contemporary) Dutch cuisine.. What? Yes! Think 'forgotten' vegetables, regional produce and slow cooking, think tastiness like pea mousse, North Sea fish soup, beet ravioli, Dutch black cow rib eye and local cheese...
We love the shabby chic-ey interior and the restaurant's prefectly professional yet chatty and comfortable service which one could only expect from a team that has been eating, sleeping and breathing hospitality for their entire adult life..
Wilde Zwijnen is located in residential East but don't worry, it's Amsterdam so you will have paddled there from wherever you are within 15 minutes.. promise. Totally worth the ride over, trust us and a house full of Amsterdammers every night can't all be wrong... Right?
