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.
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 .
Great meal restaurant was busy as almost Xmas but no impact on the great food and service.
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
Service was stunning, food excellent. Noise level a little higher than usual only because very busy. Very classy restaurant
Sensational place to dine. The staff are delightful and very switched on regarding the menu. Cocktails were spectacular, wine list extensive and the food was beautiful. Love this restaurant.
You can't beat Pravda for great food, wine and atmosphere - it's an iconic wellington restaurant with awesome staff and a cool vibe.
Had a great night food/staff and service was excellent
Thank you! We had a perfect evening, with superb food and brilliant service from the delightful Natalia. It was our first visit, but we'll definitely be coming again!
Went here for our daughters 21st. Excellent service and food. Highly recommend and would definitely come here again

Thank you Pravda for an awesome experience. Daena our waitress was first class and thank you for my unexpected happy birthday!

My partner and I dined in last night for the first time and we loved it, our waiter Dex was great. The steaks were 10/10! We will definitely be coming back.

I love Pravda - beautiful building, warm welcome, gorgeous food, great service & excellent wine selection. We went pre WoW and the timing was perfect.
Fantastic express lunch. Tasty and great service.
It was a busy WOW Friday, our service was great the young lady was very pleasant and helpful. Three of us had the fish and it was absolutely beautiful. Keep up the good work.
Great night out. Thank you!
Ok do it’s WOW weekend but that’s no excuse for the a) bubbles ordered - they didn’t have any chilled - suggest Simone keeps the fridge stocked up b) service - lack of and staff all looked stressed! - plates just plonked down. No smokes. Looked aghast when we asked who’s was whose as three meals the same with different requirements to them. Had to keep asking for things- water,coffee ice bucket .Were told two staff down but when it’s a busy weekend you need to have plan B. It’s not our problem and nothing is better than a smile and friendly service. lovely surroundings.
