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.

Awesome service, delicious food.
Squid for entree set the scene, and the pork belly for mains was tender with crunchy crackling , mmmm!

Delicious weekend breakfast.
Hubby and I shared the Pravda breakfast and the avocado smash as we couldn’t decide what we wanted. Both were delicious.
Black pudding and beans were standouts in the breakfast and eggs perfectly cooked. Avocado smash was one of the best I’ve eaten. The dukkah and nuts added a lovely flavour and just the right amount of feta.
Good coffee and pleasant service.
Would visit again

Really nice looking restaurant/cafe. What a pity our experience didn’t match our expectations when we walked in.

3 of us went for breakfast before work so while not rushing, we didn’t have a great deal of time. While the initial order was taken quite quickly, we then had a lengthy wait.

My skim milk flat white coffee somehow became soy. I’m not a fan of soy, so I had to get it changed with another wait.

The muesli dish was ok but not fabulous for the price.

An order of fruit bread with preserves became Turkish bread which was disappointing and again we had to wait a while for the replacement.

What a pity......
