BAR BACHRACH is a restaurant and bar. Enjoy a good glass of wine and share a dish at the bar, or come for an extensive dinner and let the kitchen surprise you with its own bread and modern Mediterranean Middle Eastern dishes that will make your taste buds jump in all directions. Each dish can be ordered separately, and there is a chef's menu where you get an extensive tour of several dishes from the menu.


Mediterranean Middle Eastern

In Bar Bachrach, inspiration is drawn from the cuisines of the Middle East and Europe, such as countries Lebanon, Israel, Syria, Morocco, Turkey, France and Spain. The menu is full of typical ingredients from these countries, which are combined with high-quality local, seasonal Dutch products,

Forerunner de Eetbar, and big sister Restaurant Wilde Zwijnen, have been working with a select number of wine suppliers for years. Our wine lovers Willem van Wilde Zwijnen, and Nikki from Bar Bachrach, put together the wine lists. There is a wide choice for lovers of vin nature. All our wines are also organic or biodynamic. The wine list of Bar Bachrach is a small one with many wines by the glass.



The interior exudes a warm atmosphere with lots of wood and a mix of vintage and new elements. There is a long wooden bar with comfortable swivel stools for drinks and meals. Or take a seat at one of the round vintage or new wooden tables designed by Adam Marshall. Bar Bachrach is full of personal collections of co-owner Julia Bachrach.

Bar Bachrach at Javaplein 25 previously existed as 'Eetbar Wilde Zwijnen' and is located directly next to big sister restaurant WILDE ZWIJNEN.


Due to the pandemic we had to close, which was a shock but also gave us the opportunity to look at our restaurants again. Derek the chef of the Eetbar decided to take up the challenge of cooking in Restaurant Wilde Zwijnen, so the path was clear to look for a new chef. We came into contact with Yaniv, an ambitious chef who was specially brought to the Netherlands with his family at the time to start the kitchen of a new restaurant here. We clicked right away.


In addition to a few new interior additions and the name change to Bar Bachrach ("the name sounds so good"), the cuisine is now Mediterranean Middle Eastern. The quality of the ingredients, determining the number of courses yourself, having drinks at the bar, has remained the same.


We have been open again since the end of October 2021.

We hope to see you soon, Frenk / Faysel / Julia.
