Lovely dinner, great setting, traditional Russian food in a Russian decorated place. Looks like you are going home for a family dinner, good service and excellent food.

When you go to this place you don't know what your experience will be. I have been on several occasions. On some it was just brilliant, other very average. The place is very well decorated with many things that make it feel as "home" but this will be felt mainly by the Russians, who will understand the items and clippings.... More

Came for a lunch. The food was delicious, especially the dessert. The music in the background makes it feel like it is in Russia.

Can't fault the food, loved it, service was attentive and efficient. 3 of us for dinner with a last minute booking and was well accommodated by the pleasant staff. Cost of food was more that acceptable given the quality and choice. I think we'll drop in again when we're back in Knightsbridge :-)

Second time we came to Mari Vanna here in London after I had dinner once in their restaurant in Moscow, and our experience was pleasant this time as the previous one. They serve really good food - cannot say to what extent it is the real Russian food you'd find in Russia but I take it is very close to... More

Maybe a bit expensive, but that is the only negative. I like the decor very much as broght back some nice memories from my visit to Moscow and also enjoyed the food. I would recommend vareniki, but the rest was also good.

My friend and I were looking for somewhere to grab dinner following a Friday evening shopping in the sales. We came across Mari Vanna and completely fell in love with this place. The people that worked there, the food, the service, and the atmosphere was amazing. We loved it! We are already planning for this place to be our monthly... More

The place is overpriced We paid £180 per person. This price does not include soft drinks or tea( the cake is included), this doesn't include service charge as well( it came as £60 for two of us) and felt like a massive rip off The interior was cosy, the food was great The entertainment was 2 singing ladies and Santa....

Visited for holiday season dinner. The setting is delightful, the food was excellent, Salted herring is wonderful, Borscht was good but a little light, all the entrees were wonderful and honey cake for desert was heavenly. The infused vodkas and Georgian wines were also very good. The service was fine and there was no rush at all - we didn't... More

Staying in Knightsbridge

Neighborhood Profile
Knightsbridge
When millions of tourists want to shop 'til they drop, they do it along Brompton Road and its boutique-lined tributaries, including the world-renowned Harrods. And when millionaires want to flaunt what they've already got, many of them find Knightsbridge and Belgravia the perfect place to do so, often behind stately mansion walls or down quiet private mews. Delve beyond the ultra-luxe exterior and you'll find some of this city's cosiest pubs, quiet gardens, and all sorts of indie retailers and enterprises worth a short exercise in spontaneous window shopping. For those looking to take a break from shopping, Hyde Park, Kensington Gardens, and some of the city's most popular museums are nearby.
