Bolta Rece has a remarkable history and tradition. The place itself is today a rather typical Romanian restaurant, interesting to visit (do not miss the cellar connected with the underground tunnels system under the city), Food is good, but nothing exceptional. Good service.

The restaurant is located near the faculty of medicine, on a side street. The location offers several places to eat: wine cellar, terrace, restaurant. The food is very good, Romanian classic, drinks too. Serving is excellent.

Place is packed with history...locals would tell you. Clearly not a fancy restaurant...but you can taste some Romanian food, hear some traditional music, and even sing with the band. Do not hesitate to stop by for your first visit in Iasi

I've came back here after 38 years to show my husband the town and this restaurant and I was delighted to find "Bolta Rece" always nice and full of flowers on a nice autumn day. Food: excellent, service: very pleasant and discreet, well balanced prices.

We came her by recommendation of a German guidebook. Nothing to see, one quick look at the menu and it shows clear signs of a tourist trap. We ordered a few beers and snacks to check and confirmed our intuition - bland and overpriced. Plenty...More
