Great experience

Gorgeous atmosphere, very friendly and helpful staff. The food has the traditional Russian taste and the plating is wonderful. The honey cake is to die for. Had a great experience.

If you are Russian and do not live in Russia you have to come to this restaurant! If you are not Russian and love Russian food- you found your new spot! If you are nor Russian and not familiar with Russian food but want to experience - come here. Food was excellent, just like home cooking! Interior design is adorable,... More

Being a native I wasn't too sure about this place as for the price of their bowl of borsh you can pretty much cook a whole pot of it at home. Yet, I'm pleased I went. Mari Vanna advertises that their food will taste like "at home" and this is precisely what you get - a very authentic, good quality... More

I have been to Mari Vanna 4 times already and every time my dining experience was outstanding. Food. Firsts cost around 10-12 pounds, seconds around the 25 pound mark. The portions are properly large. Being a Russian I was curious what the traditional dishes would taste like. Borsch (beetroot soup) was simply amazing - like I used to have it... More

I decided to book here after trying to find somewhere a bit different, and I suceeded. Atmosphere - lovely decor, has the feel of dining in someone's home, at first I was concerned that it looked a little cramped, but in reality, dinner with friends still felt intimate Drink - a wonderful range of traditional Russian drinks, who would of...

Had a dinner here in January. Very big portions and enjoyable atmosphere. Really enjoyed overall experience and food. Well worth to visit. Prices wise, 2 glasses of champagne, bottle of wine and three courses each came up to 190 pounds. Not cheap, but I find it reasonable for such a place.

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.
