Restaurant De Zwaan is a restaurant located in Etten-Leur, in the Netherlands. It is a fine dining restaurant that was awarded one Michelin star in the period 1994–present.[2][3][4][5][6][7][8][9][10][11][12]

Gault Millau awarded the restaurant 16 out of 20 points.[13]

Head chef of De Zwaan is Carlo Chantrel.[13] Former head chefs include John Jansen (1991).[14]

De Zwaan is a member and one of the founders of Alliance Gastronomique Néerlandaise.[13][15]

The restaurant celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2007. Part of the celebrations were cooking-sessions of other famous head chefs: Jonnie Boer, Ron Blauw, Lucas Rive and Marc van Gulick.[1] The restaurant was started by Ad Peijnenborg, father of present owner Roland Peijnenburg and member of the family who owned ontbijtkoek-firm Koninklijke Peijnenburg B.V..[15][16] The transition of ownership from father to son was planned for the end of 1991.[14] Due to the unexpected death of his father, the takeover was advanced.[17]

In 2009, restaurant De Zwaan (The Swan) started with a bistro in the same building. This bistro was called "Het Lelijke Eendje" (The Ugly Duckling).[18]

The building is a Rijksmonument.[19]
