The Greek word ‘podilato’ means bicycle. Podilato is also the name of the all-new restaurant & bar that is Mantra MacArthur Hotel’s pride and joy. It’s sister restaurant is Peppers Gallery’s Bicicletta,’ and the common theme in the restaurant names is extended to the same ‘traditional meets modern’ fusion in their menus. Podilato does to traditional Mediterranean dishes what Bicicletta does to Italian – gives them a fresh take and serves them in a relaxed sharing ambience.

Head chef Sean Mawbey brings a world of experience to every dish on the table. From his early days serving out his apprenticeship in a two hat restaurant in Sydney, to being a pastry chef in London, to managing large teams and being his own head chef, Sean’s appreciation of rustic Mediterranean fare has never diminished. By keeping to fresh ingredients and uncomplicated cooking styles, Sean tempers the richness of tradition with the delicacy of modern gastronomy in some inspiring variations on classic Mediterranean dishes.

Podilato is open daily for breakfast and lunch, and six nights a week for dinner.

Experiences

A shining example of Canberra’s inner city rejuvenation, the new Mantra MacArthur Hotel is ideally located only 5 minutes by car from the city centre, in the leafy inner suburb of Turner. Wide roads and nature strips add to the area’s arboreal appeal, particularly in spring and autumn. Neighbouring suburb O’Conner’s shopping area is close and the Australian National University, Australian War Memorial and the Braddon dining precinct are also within walking distance.

If you prefer a hike to a walk, head up to the nearby Mt Ainslie Lookout, with its commanding views over the planned capital and plentiful wildlife. Or for a more sedate escape from the city, you can also stroll to and through Canberra’s magnificent Botanic Gardens, with the most complete collection of Australian fauna in the country, including the Red Centre Garden and even its own patch of rainforest!
