Booked a romantic Valentine’s dinner and left early because the live music was painfully loud. I don’t mind background music in restaurants, even Russian pop, but we were in a small room with an electronic violin, a singer,a microphone and huge speaker so it was...More

Overall we had a great experience here on Valentine’s Day. The food was delicious and the decor was very pretty. Unfortunately however, the atmosphere was slightly ruined by the live performers. Not only was the volume far too loud making it hard to talk across...More

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

We dined at this wonderful Russian restaurant. We were warmly greeted and shown to our table. The interior décor of this restaurant is truly beautiful and feels very imperial Russian in style. This was our first dining experience at a Russian restaurant in this country,...More

The Russian cuisine restaurant is based in the heart of Knightsbridge, opposite the Bulgari hotel. The restaurant itself is very particular; the interior design sort of resemble what an old Russian house could look like. Personally I find it original and quite unique in its...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.

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

walls or down quiet private mews. Delve beyond the
ultra-luxe exterior and you'll find some of this
