Кафе Лайма на канале Грибоедова - самое актуальное прямо сейчас - CityOut Санкт-Петербург (http://www.peterout.ru/eda/cafes/2092)

Just a bit further down the kanal from Laima is фрикадельками (I think it ends in "skii" so "Frikadelskii" also a nice place and not too expensive. It's cafeteria-style, you fill your tray with choices from several stations and then take it to your table. Traditional Russian fare, fairly large range of choices for main courses and deserts, nice atmostphere.

The blini kosks are great, Teremok and Ryubliy. The draft kvas (on tap) from the Teremok kiosks is our favorite. Kroshka Cartoshka and Chainaya Loshka are other favorites of ours, both have several spots throughout the city including the center (Vosstanaya metro for example).

For best cost, nothing beats a loaf of dark rye break, a hunk of Rossisky cheese, perhps a bit of Russky Garchitsa (mustard) and a bottle of fresh Kvas!

there are many great cafe's to eat in the city that aren't too steep in price either. I suggest two mainly
1) A cafe on top of Nevsky Atrium near the Mayakovskaya Metro station. It is on the 5th floor and has a great view, good pizza, and affordable prices.
2) is a Cafe' near the Zenit store on sovorovsky prospekt. I think it is called Van's cafe or something. Great great food and the waiting staff are great to talk to.

My personally favorite in terms of price and food is Zoom cafe on Gorochovaya. You usually have to wait but its good. Also Fasol a little ways up the street is pretty good. Mama Roma is ok in terms of price and food. Freakadelka is good and cheap as mentioned. There is a nice little restaurant on Canal Gribeodev, by Voznesenski thats good but I forget the name now. There are two good georgian places as well. One on Fontanka and one right by the McDonalds on Boshaya Marskaya. (the second one doesn't look good but I've eaten there often and its always pretty good food). Again just walk to city and you can find lots of places.

There's always the pie chain "Stolle" for you. Nevsky Atrium "Pizza Bazilik" and Kavkaz bar are great. For dining out You can try 1913 - it has affordable prices. A number of places downtown have business lunch offers.
Though I wouldn't recommend Chainaya Lozhka - You can get stomach problems after such a meal. Choose Teremok instead and You won't regret it.

cheap:
dve palochki (asian, chain but good)
frekadelki (mentioned)
carls jr (good burgers)
stolle (perog, mentioned)

not cheap (but not crazy expensive):
terrassa (fusion menu, very nice decor including balcony in summer)
shilla (good korean)

I advise you Russkaia Rybalka. Close to the Central Cultural Park, good food for less than 1000 by person, it was elected several times the best restaurant of St Pet

You can even fish by yourself in the lake close to the restaurant and they will cook for you, funny...

Yes, Russkaya Rybalka (if we mean at Krestovsky ostrov) is really super!

Russkaya Rybalka is Ok in summer, but very empty when there are no tourists. It's overpriced and the location is inconvenient. Last time I was there with my clients, the service was very slow.
Nice restaurants, centrally located:
1913, Sadko, Stroganoff Steakhouse, NEP

There are really great places to eat:
Carl's Junior - Is Good Specially the Chicken Burgers....
There is a Chinese Chain "Tan Zhen" - Outstanding Food with great Prices..
Sbarro - To have a Quick Bite
On Fontanka - There is a Restaurant "Kukhnya" - great French Food with Italian Touch
The Ginza Project - Restaurants are Very Good (Like Novikov's in Moscow")
For a Quick Russian Food there is a new chain Called "Emelya" - The Food is Good
What else - Well, Steak Places - Most of the Pubs serve Great Steak but "Strogonoff" is VERY EXPENSIVE
Good Luck

I'm going to be in St Petes tomorrow to meet some friends who came there as tourists and I could use a couple of recommendations:

1. Some nice classical restaurant for good for tourists, similar to Pushkin Cafe in Moscow. I heard 1913 and Vodka Museum are good, any feedback?

2. Some nice georgian restaurant for good for tourists, similar to Genatsvale or Tiflis in Moscow.

Any ideas?

Thanks
Ron

Carl's Junior - Is Good Specially the Chicken Burgers....Great place, look at the posters at the shop and the videos at the counters, this kind of "advertisement" (Read: We are so much better than McDonald) would bring a lawsuit in the U.S., but we are in Russia

I think McD's would have a hard time in persuing a case..... Just not enough there to prove anything :-) BTW..that Dbl Cheese Burger freakin' ROCKS!!

There's a decent Chinese place acrossed the street from the hotel. It's to your left if you are standing outside of the front entrance, facing the statue of Peter the Great. There is also an Irish pub on the same side of the street as the Chinese place. That's about it. Not much going on in that area of town..
