I dined in Mari Vanna many times, and never was left disappointed with service or the food. Its not cheap, and even pricier than some of Mayfair trendy places, but really worth it. And its strange for me to read other reviews about unfriendly and...More

The restaurant looks beautiful inside however grumpy staff ruin your experience. No one smiles no even thank you when we were leaving. I ordered dumplings with mashed potatoes and mushrooms. Some of them arrived empty. When the waiter came to collect our plates, he did...More

Still an excellent restaurant......great interior, and fastidious, pleasant staff.... I opted for the 2 course Set menu - Shuba coated Herring (starter), was excellent, and the Salted salmon and Courgette Pancakes were equally good. Exceptionally good indeed.

Entering the restaurant feels like stepping back in time, into a Russian grandma's parlour. Item by item, the decor looks kitsch but somehow it all works together to create a bizarrely charming atmosphere. We ate from the good value set lunch menu; well prepared Russian...More

I was somewhat skeptical of how Russian traditional food was, but what a treat we had! Guided by my Ukrainian friend, we experienced a variety of dishes ranging from traditional russian style blinis with Salmon Roe, which were more like crepes frankly, very tasty though...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
