Wielinga is located in a listed building overlooking the elegant New Rhine river, in the centre of the lively city of Leiden. It looks out onto the town hall, what is known locally as ‘trouwstraatje’ – the ‘wedding street’ – and the Koornbeursbrug. In short, a special place to lunch, meet, toast, taste, dine and more. Dedication and attention to detail have resulted in a pleasant and stylish ambiance.
After passing through the Brasserie, the Wine Bar, the Charcuterie & Delicatesse and the wine storage, you enter the Restaurant. Wielinga: informal wining and dining in a comfortable setting.
The Brasserie is Wielinga’s first room. With view of the New Rhine and the terrace, it is the perfect eating and drinking location for lunch. Accompanied by a Hertog Jan draught beer or a cup of Manetti coffee, the most delicious lunch dishes are served here. You can also opt for a two-course à la carte lunch in the restaurant.
Of course, no brasserie is complete without charcuterie and oysters. Combine them with a nice Alsacian wine, et voilà!
The Wijnbar is Wielinga’s second room. Here, thanks to our ‘wine by the glass’ concept, you can sample not only our wide range of house wines, but several high-end wines as well. The perfect place to enjoy an aperitif before going to the restaurant or to sit and relax after dinner.
The Wijnbar is open to everyone who wants to have a drink, and taste one – or more – of our perfectly prepared small dishes. Or you can choose from what the Charcuterie & Delicatesse, located immediately next to the Wijnbar, has to offer
Every day, a wide range of products is on display opposite the wine storage. Do not resist temptation – make your selection from pata negra, Cecina de León, saucisson, fromage, the most delicious olives and bread as bread was intended, produced by Boulangerie Mamie Gourmande.
All this represents the true Wielinga spirit of enjoyment!
