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.

    The decoration of the restaurant is a bit much, though quite cosy. The food is tasty, and the menu has a lot of variety to suit different tastes. I've enjoyed the authenticity of the cuisine. Some dishes are a bit expensive. The staff are pleasant and the kitchen is accommodating to dietary requirements.

    the food was overall very good and service was ok but it was too hot no AC or open window and one more important thing the receptionist was very rude shouting about needing a table while we did a booking any way she was impolite

    It felt like we were eating at a very close friend’s grandmas! It was all soulfully delicious and comfortable. Everything we had was great, the service was excellent, it was our first time as a group of 5 but we will definitely make this space our regular.

    The interior and atmosphere is so nice, and as always the food was amazing. We always enjoy dining at this restaurant but our seating was too small for x3 people and so we had trouble with having all of our dishes on the table at the same time.
