West of the citycentre on the southside of Prospekt Lenina, (look at the map on this site) you'll find a rather big fast-food restaurant where they sell several chickenmeals, ice-creams and more stuff like Mc Donalds.
Nice to have a seat at the window, overviewing the people taking over.
Tinkoff is the name of a chain of pubs/breweries across all Russia - today they have around 13 pubs.
Great modern design in all breweries and you can see the stainless steel tanks from where you sit. This one in Ekaterinburg has an interesting layout with three stories arrayed around a scene where sometimes music bands play.
Tinkoff is a good choice whatever the city and a favourite one of all my russian friends and colleagues...
Favorite Dish: As a brewery, they brew their own beer - filtered or non filtered that is really good. (and coming from a czech that IS a compliment)
As for food - classic pub meals, some more sophisticated, good sausages (a special offer features 1m of sausage) and of course... a big selection of sushi.
Yes, sushi - I believe the average consumption per capita of sushi in russian towns to be bigger than in Japan and every restaurant has to propose some, be it brewery or italian restaurant. But nonregarding, the sushi in Tinkoff are rather good.
Elephant, Ulitsa Malesheva, expencive, and sinse almost two years closed!!!

Gradara ulitsa Malesheva 36

Mc Peak s fast food restaurant, Porspect lenina, 24/8
It's a traditional Russian traktir (sort of a pub) situated in the centre of the city, in the Historical Square (the Plotinka).
In summer there's an open-air terrace surrounded by ash-trees. In colder seasons visitors can sit in a stylishly decorated hall with hand-woven floor rugs.
The menu is in Russian and English.
Favorite Dish: Cold kvass soup ("okroshka");
Herring under beat-root cover ("Sel'd pod shuboi");
Salted milk mushrooms (from the owner's stock);
Pelmenis with sturgeon and salmon;
Old-recipe Russian mead ("medovukha", caution - it's very strong, about 40 deg of alcohol, but it's not vodka)
Goog food but expensive!
Good Ukranian music
Favorite Dish: watch wine prices, they can be a killer!...as in most restaurants in Ekaterinburg,,,wine prices start from about $30 a bottle!!
no logic whatsoever for a country whose salaries are about 400$ a month!
something between a bar and a little restaurant...you can go there just to drink something but you also can eat....the ambient is quite elegant , the people are usually nice, the food not bad and the prices not too expensive.
English Menu! Traditional Russian restaurant. Next door to my other recomended restaurant Gradara. (I think owned by the same people as standards are good in both). Eat from the buffet or menu, all good value.
Favorite Dish: Palamina
McPeaks are very popular and are everywhere! Like a combination of Traditional Russian Fast food (what ever that is) and McDonalds, only better. Good choice of food and many have childrens areas. If you dont have time for a full on restaurant these are a good and safe choice.
Favorite Dish: Milk shakes!
Gradara is simply wonderful! Has English menu too which helps. Good quality Italian and very cheap for a european purse.
the place was full of Americans, British , German, french and Irish last time I was there, all very cosmopolitan. This is obviously a meeting place! Highly recommended.
Favorite Dish: The fish dishes are all very good.
McPeaks appear to be everywhere in and around the city. Combination of McDonalds and Russian fast food. All very clean inside and seems to be good value for money.
The food is healthy by normal fast food standards and you can get everything from rice and fish to the traditional burger and fries. (Milkshakes are good and thick!) All the ones I visited were bright, clean and comfortable, what else do you need from a fast food joint.
Mcpeak Sunday, not to be confused with McPeak, is a new restaurant establishment featuring food from around the world. I have to be honest, this is really well done. You can eat anything from Sushi to Pizza to traditional Russian all in separate areas. The design is very clean and modern and if you have children, there is also a separate kids area. The sushi bar even has Koi carp swimming around the Japanese area (thankfully not on the menu!) You are given a credit style card when you enter and everything you eat and drink is simply added to the card. you pay as you leave. Very efficient and reasonable prices! (MTV on some moniters on walls). Recommended
Favorite Dish: Everything
Traditional Russian cuisine but with a menu translating it all into English! Far more enjoyable when you understand what you're eating. very good value and very popular with locals. Choose from a menu or Buffet or both if you're a "salad-dodger". Right next door to the Italian Restaurant Gradara, so if one is too busy, try next door!
Gradara on Malisheva; good quality italian with an English menu and usually one member of staff speaks English. Very popular with all foreign visitors. Cost of an average pizza here is around $3, you can't go wrong, enjoy!
The name translates to 'The dishes of the Georgian Kitchen'. The restaurant is on Belinskiy street (or Belinskogo as it sounds in Russian). It is really not far from the American Consulate.
I was very fortunate to be there on a night when a local classical singer graced the audience with his talent. For dinner and dancing at a restaurant of the locals this was as good as it gets.
Favorite Dish: Order three of more salads as they are small and delicious. The Georgian red wines are sweet but lovely just the same. Careful with the Georgian lanuage menu as my Russian guest mistakenly order HUGE pelminis for me. :-) Oh and the flat bread was fabulous!!!!
There lots of litle cafes and pelmeni places, when you want to dine out. Cactus is a mexican restaurant, and a menu in english.
When I want to treat myself I go to the Dubliners, Very nice good food good service, bit expencive, but between sunday and thursday afternoon 30% dicount!
They have a menu in English, and the service is good, the girls very friendly, nice place. go there if you gor the change it is on 23 Honkrakova across 36 Maysheva
Favorite Dish: Guinnes. and the chili, calmari and their salads. Yummie!
