Fantastic Russian restaurant in Knightsbridge. Amazing interior design, helpful staff, excellent quality and wonderful atmosphere. It is pricy, but is worthy. Definitely #beefstroganoff and #honeycake must be ordered. Strongly recommended.

I visited Mari Vanna with a few friends for my birthday in December last year (2016) We were in the restaurant area downstairs. The food was very good and the decoration is very quirky. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.

We booked for lunch today and were fascinated by the decor. Many tables were taken by Russians, both young and old which seemed a good sign. We were greeted by pleasant staff (male and female) but as it seemed a smart establishment the jeans, tee-shirts...More

Very nice Russian restaurant. Great atmosphere, high quality Russian classics. A bit pricey, but guess justified by location and food quality. Would definitely pay a visit again.

Real Russian food (and service!). The design is very unique with samovars, Russian books and photos. The room downstairs with sofas is even nicer. Try the salmon blinis and the pelmeni :) The drinks are good too. A go-to place for the Russian community in...More

I have been dining at Mari Vanna for half a decade both in London and NYC. I have had birthdays, romantic dinners, and family gatherings there. While Mari Vanna is a place one needs to spend a bit to get the full experience, it is...More

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

There were a family with children in there when I went, so I don't see a problem. If unsure you should ring before you go.
