De Wiering Leuven Reviews
Jul 05, 2007
Hungry and in need of some good food, but not willing to spend too much? You should go to De Wiering. This restaurant is located in an old house with a beautiful terrace on the roof. They serve good food here which isn’t expensive, and you get a
well filled plate.
Don’t go here for the latest culinary experiments or fancy designer chairs, but for a nice, tasty meal in a warm interior. Wooden floors and a warm fireplace set the tone. The collection of beer they serve is huge (about 60 different brands)! You can try all kinds of flavours and since Belgium is quite a ‘bear brewing country’ you must have had some of them by the end of your visit.
When you enter the Wiering you hear some funny old cloister music playing in the entrance hall. That’s pretty weird but don’t let it distract you. Just walk trough the corridor into the restaurant. At Friday and during weekends, you better reserve a seat, because this place is crowded with people than, and cues form quickly in the corridor! This proves that I’m not the only happy visitor going
back there again and again. Mainly students enjoy De Wiering because it’s decent yet reasonably cheap, but yet you can find more or less all kinds of people here.
The speciality here are grilled dishes (spare-ribs) and prawns, but I have some other favourites to suggest to you.
Salad with apple dressing and feta(9,9 euro)
Vegetarion filled pancake (10,2 euro)
Cherry beer Sabayon with ice cream (5,8 euro)
Though I suggest a complete menu here it is quite unlikely that anyone could eat all three dishes at ones. So I recommend that you stick with one or two courses, depending on your appetite.
