The options are wide and diverse, here are a few of them:

University’s Bistro for Students

University’s bistro for students is an everyday handy solution. 50 seats are available inside and 10 extra seats on the ledge. University’s canteen will soon be modernized, so it will be able to host 200 hungry students simultaneously.

The food is tasty and prices are the lowest you’ll get in Iasi if you show them your student’s ID. Average price for a complete menu (2 dishes) is 12 lei (~2.5 euros – and there’s no typo here).

You can check their daily offer by calling +40.232.301.720. It is open until 16:00.

Tip: The earlier you go the most dishes you can choose from, since they have dishes of the day.
