Situated in the heart of Knightsbridge, Mari Vanna, home of the mythical Russian matriarch, bids you a warm welcome to her London outpost for a home-cooked meal and a cosy retreat.
Specialising in "babushka cooking", the menu is replete with Russian dishes and influences from the former Soviet countries of Georgia, Ukraine and also offers an extensive selection of salads and lighter dishes displaying a liberal use of fresh herbs. Its generous and exquisite selection of tea-time treats, cakes and infusions, meanwhile, is hard to resist, and available throughout the day.
With extraordinary attention to detail, Mari Vanna transports each guest into the Russian home of a bygone era where shelves are adorned with matryoshka dolls, trinkets and tchotchke. Displaying true Russian tradition from top to toe, Mari Vanna is a rare find in London. Initially opened in a private apartment in St Petersburg, Mari Vanna has sister restaurants in Moscow and New York.

We had loads of fun eating here and trying all sorts of Russian dishes, infused vodkas and champagne. Everything was good, I have just one note about the caviar. First, it's excellent. Second, there are different prices and quantities listed in the Russian and English language sections of the menu, and not all menus show the same prices/options. English speakers will pay more for less, as... more
Love this place. Authentic Russian food. Homey and super cosy set up, great atmosphere and most importantly - food... Been going there every week during my 1 month long trip to London over Christmas and New Year. more
Three stars for the overall pleasing atmosphere, amazing interior decoration (including the loos!) and the quality food. A whole two stars dinked for the nonexistent waiter service.
My friend and I had a dinner rez at 6:45 last night. We were seated promptly in a gorgeous room set up like grandma's parlour with curios, photos, lace curtains, jam jars etc everywhere on ornate shelves and... more
