The Mari Vanna is a cozy restaurant with a Soviet retro look. Black-and-white photos from the past, a samovar and shiny polished crystal glasses in a grandmother’s cupboard. The caring Mari Vanna is doing her magic in the kitchen putting a lot of soul into the culinary treats she makes, as if cooking for her own grandchildren.

Even our forefathers knew that the best way to keep one’s spirits high is eating a bowl of aromatic, nourishing borscht with garlic and a shot of vodka. And if there are homemade sausages, jelly with horseradish and squash spread on the table too – now that’s a real feast!

The kindest Uncle Misha meets the guests of the Mari Vanna restaurant. His striped naval vest, sweatpants and radiant smile are familiar to everyone: from those who come here for sophisticated business meetings to couples having a romantic dinner.

Mari Vanna knows that her guests love to sleep longer, so she serves homemade breakfast all day long. Those who want to enjoy her specialty roasted beef or stuffed goose at one’s own festive table can always call the delivery service.

Visitors speak:

Very nice concept of redoing the old Soviet communal apartment shared by several families. The staff is friendly and collaborative, food is good (Russian cuisine, seems the type a grandma will make). Perfect for those cold and dark days of St Pete. Nice experience, will definitely go back.

Not bad, but a little bit slow on the service. Traditional Russian food, probably the most authentic in the city. Good for big groups.
