Description: Set in the heart of the city, Pravda Café & Grill is a Wellington institution; the perfect place to go for everything from a morning espresso to a leisurely lunch, afternoon drink or dinner out. In Russian, Pravda means “the truth”. Hence the eatery’s focus on honest, produce-led dishes that use the very best ingredients New Zealand has to offer. The daytime menus offer flavourful café favourites given a modern spin, along with freshly ground Immigrant’s Son coffee. The cheese scones are world-famous in Wellington, while the breakfast and lunch dishes run the gamut from contemporary egg dishes to innovative salads, burgers and sandwiches, and bistro classics. By night, Pravda is Wellington’s best steakhouse, with a carefully curated selection of exceptional cuts, informed by the menu at Pravda’s siblings, the iconic Jervois Steak House restaurants. At Pravda, a warm welcome always awaits you.

One of our favourites which never disappoints. The food is excellent and well matched by the service by the lovely Elizabeth (our Ngati Russia).

This was business group team dinner beginning with a drink in the bar. First return visit in 6 years and pleased to find the high standards maintained and enhanced. Staff were drilled in good service and faultless in execution. Drinks and water replenished in a seamless fashion. A selection of entrees were a delight to taste and the pan fried snapper - perfect in all its simplicity. The deep and regal surrounding deliver a hidden off the street charm. Happy to return in a much shorter time-frame.

We had a variety of main courses in our group and some were very good and some were more average. The variety and flavours were nice and the service was very good. The restaurant was quite noisy in places and at times which is great for a younger crowd but less good if you want a conversation. However, overall we felt the restaurant really warranted only 3 stars and not 4, although it could be higher on a different night.
