Russian
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.

This quirky Russian restaurant deserves a visit for its interesting homely decor, very authentic Russian food (at least my two Russian guests said so...) and great location just near Harrods etc. The food wasn't particularly to my taste but we had a lovely evening and the staff were very nice and welcoming.

We arrived an hour ahead of time and the restaurant was so kind to accommodate us at the bar earlier and let us order some food

Hot appetisers can take 30+ minutes, so order cold appetisers if hungry or on a schedule.

Ambience is really cool, it feels like you are in a old house.
Service was really good and the lady who served us was really nice.
Just one thing to say, when entering the place, it is very narrow and there’s no space for people walking in and out on the same time. Greeting should be reviewed .
Overall I feel we had such a great time and would definitely come back!

Something different with delicious food and lovely service. Feels high class but like you’re in someone’s living room
