We have created a unique environment at Pravda Café and Grill that is deliciously different for all manner of special occasions and private functions. Set in the heart of the city amongst the hustle and bustle of share traders, commuters and visitors to the Lambton shopping precinct, Pravda is located in an elegant building with towering vaulted ceilings and hanging chandeliers of crystal.

Pravda combines the simplicity of an Italian café with marble topped tables and warming tones of dark wood panelling in the bar where Lenin’s bust watches over proceedings, to the relaxed informal dining of its banquette dining room.


Set in the heart of Wellington, Pravda Café & Grill is the perfect location for canapé functions. The generous, atmospheric space can host to up to 150 standing guests (though more intimate spaces can also be arranged), making Pravda a great place to hold everything from product launches to business functions, fashion shows and birthday parties.

Pravda’s comprehensive drinks list offers something for every taste and budget, while our talented chefs have put together a contemporary, wide-ranging canapé menu that caters for all dietary requirements. If you have something special in mind, our friendly functions team are also happy to work with you to produce dishes and drinks tailor-made for your event.

There is no venue hire cost for exclusive use of Pravda Café & Grill, however a minimum spend does apply. Please contact us for more information; we’d love to help you to create an event to remember.



With its vaulted ceilings, crystal chandeliers and expanses of dark wood and marble, Pravda Café & Grill makes a wonderfully atmospheric wedding venue. The dining room can seat up to 80 guests, while the bar area can also be used as a space for arrival drinks and canapés. If you wish to also hold your ceremony at the restaurant, the front area can accommodate up to 60 standing guests.

Executive chef Gareth Stewart and his team create set menus for all tastes and budgets, serving contemporary, bistro-style dishes that are sure to be a hit with your guests. Pravda Café & Grill’s drinks list is wide-ranging, and the restaurant’s late license (2am), means there’s no rush to clear the dance floor just as the party’s kicking off. 

Pravda Café & Grill has hosted many wonderful weddings over the years, and our friendly functions team have developed strong, long-standing relationships with celebrants, florists, audio visual specialists, DJs and hire companies. We can arrange all aspects of your wedding for you, or alternatively are happy for you to bring in your own vendors.

There is no cost to hire Pravda Café & Grill as your wedding venue, however a minimum spend does apply. Please contact us for more information; we’d love to work with you to create the wedding of your dreams.
