With all my Russian experience of true Russian cuisine from the Babushka’s kitchen, I really loved this amazing restaurant. I came here with my husband. and we were overwhelmed with Russian coziness. We loved it and we will come back again!

The place is moderately kitch. Service is excellent. Dishes are all revisited Russian classics with modern twist. In general they're lighter and smaller then traditional ones. Duck piroshki are excellent. Gurievskaya kasha is surprisingly light and tasty.

On our visit to Saint Petersburg, we had to stop at Mari Vanna and it’s hidden room (photos attached) to feel the real Russian spirit. The decoration and the atmosphere brings you back to USSR, it’s a strange and amazing feeling. We loved it! The...More

Very interesting restaurant, great décor: it´s an old house where you eat in small rooms, decorated with books and old articles. Food is very good (Napoleon tart for dessert was superb)and service is good, although sometimes the waiter was lost in the labyrinth of rooms...More
