About Pravda Cafe & Grill

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. Executive chef Gareth Stewart sources red meat of the highest quality, and alongside the grill offering is a modern bistro menu, with dishes that offer something for everyone.

Our 'once-a-month' dinner outing is always fun and all about the company with good food. This outing to Pravda was great company and excellent food - a brilliant menu catering for our individual favs. The wonderful staff were key to this experience i.e. friendly, professional (attentive and observant!) and sustaining the special atmosphere at Pravda.

As always, the scones really are the best in Wellington. I have found Pravda to be an ideal place for out-of-office meetings.

We had a fabulous dining experience. The food was delicious and beautifully presented. Our waitress was very knowledgeable and we chose her recommendations. Thank you very much for a lovely evening for our first visit to your fine establishment. I'm now curious to try out your cheese scones, as fabulously described by our lovely waitress. Thanks again for a lovely evening.

This is a very good quality cafe and grill, our waitress was always around and glasses were always full. The presentation and meals were excellent and out of the party of 10 everyone commented about how nice the food was which is an achievement. Highly recommended .

Arranged our Staff Christmas Lunch at Pravda, very favorable comments from my colleagues. Food was delicious, service excellent and good value for money. The atmosphere was quite noisy, but after a while it didn't bother us that much. Thoroughly enjoyed and definitely recommend.

We ordered off the 2 or 3 course mean options. All dishes were delicious and service was attentive, but not overbearing. We had quite a long lunch and didn't feel rushed to leave. Everything was just delightful

Hi there, we were a little disappointed (particularly for a couple of friends that were on a budget and chose to come for the set ladies lunch menu) when we came to pay, we ended up paying $44 per person rather than $35. When we asked why, the staff member advised it was because we had used 5L of sparkling water, although no one had been advised there was an extra cost for this, and one member of our party was adamant that the sparkling was on the table when we arrived. We were all topped up super consistently, almost too much. So felt like this was a frustrating cost addition that we were not made aware of and had not bargained for. In the few weeks before Christmas’s this seemed a bit of an unfair scam. On a positive the food was lovely. We just felt a bit cheated that we all paid $10 more for the ladies lunch deal, all seven of us unknowingly. So an extra $70 for sparkling water topped up unceasingly is not a good vibe. Thanks Jen
