Post study-abroad travel - eating well on a student budget

Jump to last reply

My DD is just finishing up a semester of study abroad in Madrid and will be leaving in about a week to travel around Europe for a month. She asked for help finding restaurants, so I'm turning to the always helpful Fodors community! She likes to eat well and is reasonably sophisticated in terms of cuisine, but she is paying for the trip herself with money she earned working, and she will be traveling with others who have varying budgets, all students. Generally speaking, she wants to avoid fast food, chains, food she can get at home (US), and places that cater to tourists - she's hoping that if she comes prepared with a list of affordable restaurants she will be able to convince the others not to just wander into the first pizza place they see!

They are visiting:
Rome
Florence (will be there Christmas Eve and Christmas)
Venice
Vienna (will be there NYE and New Years Day)
Budapest
Prague
Amsterdam
Paris

Will be in each city 2-3 days except Rome (4 days) and Paris (5 days). In most cities they have rented apartments through AirBnB so will eat breakfast in and can make themselves a picnic lunch, and save money that way.

I'd appreciate suggestions for:
1. Restaurants for dinner with good food, fresh ingredients, typical of the region but also creative cooking, fun atmosphere, on a student budget (assume approximately 15-20 euros per person per night for Italy and Vienna, could sometimes go slightly higher after that because others go home at that point and it will be just DD and her boyfriend, and they might spend a bit more on some nights - but they always appreciate it if they don't have to!). ‎ If there is anyplace where a bit of a splurge for them is especially worth it, they'd appreciate knowing that.
2. Anywhere particularly good for for them to pick up picnic lunch supplies. Open-air type markets, to the extent these exist in these cities in winter.
3. Any advice for sightseeing "hidden gems" or other insider advice in these cities.
4. Any particular advice for the holiday days (Christmas/ ‎New Years).
Thanks!‎
