The Honey cake is so popular and Tasty I only enjoyed the desserts However, It is too expensive to pay 74 pounds for two salads, two juices, and one honey cake!

I'm a Russian living in London. Mari Vanna is filled by Russian staff and Russian customers. There is also a slightly exaggerated traditional interior but after feeling out of place in a foreign city, the retreat into the familiar is more than welcome! I came here for dinner with friends. Making the reservation was easy. The staff are VERY polite... More

I surprised my Russian speaking girlfriend with an evening at Mari Vanna. Bearing in mind I have never had Russian food before, I was thoroughly impressed by the calibre of dishes available. We were made to feel incredibly welcome and felt very looked after by the staff. I would strongly recommend the salmon blinis; a delight!! A truly Russian experience... More

I paid about £80 for basic food and drop of wine in a large glass. That is for two people. For that price I would better go to The Shard.

Hi Peter, Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry you did not think your dinner was worth it. Our prices are based on the total experience of the dinner. Everything is handmade and a lot is made of ingredients that are not easily found in England. Also, there is always a chance to take a glance at the menu... More

I came here on Victory Day (May the 9th) and was taken back by how perfectly decorated Mari Vanna was. The soup and main I had was absolutely amazing, I highly recommend going here.

Mari Vanna is a very cosy place with interesting interior design, which takes you back to another era. The food is very good quality and well presented. The service is also very good and friendly. Definitely one of my most favourite places in London. Can't wait to go back.

Of Russian descent, we were looking forward to this meal, and were quiet pleased. This restaurant is more upscale and quaint than we realized. We felt a little under dressed at dinner in our nice jeans and sweaters. They play Russian music in the dining room and traditional children's stories in the lavatories. (The latter was a really unexpected, sweet... More

Went there last night with another couple, and it lived up to its reputation as in the decor was outstanding and the food was delicious. However, I was a bit unsettled by one item on the final bill...the raspberry juice...which ended up costing £35 - more than anything else we ordered that night!! It was offered casually to us in...

Hello there, Thank you so much for your feedback. We apologise for not delivering you a fully satisfying experience and that you left with slightly bad feeling. The juice you were drinking is called "mors" and a jug is £17,50 and we suppose you had two. We will definitely consider your feedback but unfortunately it's difficult for us to analyse... 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.
