Went in a group of 14. Some pre-prandial drinks that were ordered did not arrive and had to be re-ordered and still did not arrive! It took two hours to get the first dish served. We all ordered only for the waitress to come back and tell us that the cooks would only accept four different main... read more

I was there for lunch and really enjoyed it. Service was fast and friendly and I would certainly go again in order to try the other dishes!

They had several flemish dishes my mother served as a child. Flemish stoof carbonaden, Rabbit, etc...The menu had a lot of choices so everyone could enjoy. The rib dinners are huge and tasty. The beer menu had a lot of local varieties. The atmosphere was excellent and service was good. Great value for the money.

We go quite often to de wiering, especially for the ribs and grilled meats, they are really delicious. I usually take their bearnaise sauce with my food because it's really homemade and very well prepared. I didn't have super experiences with their pasta/salads, they're ok but nothing to go back for. Conclusion: not fine dining but their specialities are worth... More

I had dinner at "De wiering" with two friends and we had a great time. The place is really nice and the service is fast and punctual. The ribs were so juicy and well cooked, and so was the grilled mix.

Not the place for the gourmand but if you like good food, honestly and cheaply served try de Wiering. Don't be put off by the somewhat unpromising entrance. Once you step into the restaurant you will get a warm and friendly welcome. We were there in the hot weather so did not try the spare ribs, which are a speciality.... More

Nice brasserie in the centre where you can eat typical belgian dishes! Just one remark: the menu is not translated in english, even if in the city there are many and many foreign students and workers.

I chose this brasserie because it was a little further from the hustle and bustle that was going on nearer to the centre of town. It was a very hot evening so I opted for a cool dish - I chose the chicken salad with fresh fruit and sweet curry sauce. The chicken served on a skewer was very tender... More

We had the famous ribs here, many different flavours, very much worth a visit. Huge variety of beers, nice cosy interior, especially on the higher floors. Young & friendly staff. Great experience, on my "must revisit" list for my next visit to Leuven. Truly a hidden gem.
