A regular haunt while in Wellington and always great. The breakfast menu is well provided for and the eggs and bacon is a winner. Good coffee and exceptional service. Really enjoy going here every time.

Our group of five enjoyed a fabulous lunch at Pravda. The location is great and the service was pitched perfectly. I have to admit that we were probably only looking for coffee and something small to accompany this. However, the menu looked great and we...More

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.
