Pravda Cafe & Grill
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, an afternoon drink or dinner out. In Russian, Pravda means “the truth”. The daytime menus offer flavourful café favorites 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. Pravda delivers European sophistication to the Wellington café and restaurant scene. The heritage building is atmospheric by day or night, with vaulted high ceilings, crystal chandeliers and expanses of marble and dark wood. Generous windows allow light to flood in, and a sense of elegance imbues the space.
