Go for the Experience

Nothing better than sitting down to a menu that you aren't too sure exactly what you're going to get - but have faith the chefs know exactly how to make your tastebuds happy! We enjoyed the most spectacular breakfast here, which opened our eyes for flavour combinations. We will be back another time to have the degustation, quality produce and amazing flavour.

Outside contemporary dining- outstanding experience.

Having been here twice on two visits to Canberra, for breakfast, we're surprised that this place isn't busier! Getting to the restaurant is an easy drive from anywhere in Canberra, also conveniently located close to Canberra airport. Enter this unassuming gravel car park and you're at Pod Food. Although the service was a little-too energetic for a weekend morning, this was soon overlooked with the outstanding and amazingly fresh food- all from local produce. Our last visit seen us sit outside, its hard to appreciate how quiet it is, how far away this place is, despite it being so close to the city. Everything on their menu is sourced locally, and is full of flavour. Quality, fresh ingredients at their best. The coffee is from the much-lauded Lonsdale Street Roasters, and is a perfect accompaniment to the food. A must-try here is the breakfast degustation, which changes regularly. This place is a must-eat in Canberra!

Breakfast, lunch or dinner you can not go wrong here. I have to go on their breakfast reputation from friends but I can definitely vouch for lunch (twice) and dinner (once with a large group). This is what eating should be, fine food and wine without all the usual pretension that goes with it. The exquisite setting in a garden at the back of Pialligo only makes it better. Every single dish that came out was picture perfect and a taste sensation. Well worth the trip out to one of the most scenic spots in Canberra. I like to take visitors there to show off why we love the place.

Service was excellent. We had the degustation menu with accompanying wine (wine chosen by the waiter). Food was wonderful and wine was very well matched. Waiter was very attentive and knowledgeable. We will definitely be back again.

Pod Food Overview

Take a stroll along Canberra’s vibrant gardens of Pialligo Plant Farm and you’ll find Pod Food, a hidden gem serving innovative European-style fare. Surrounded by a green garden terrace, this restored 1930s weatherboard cottage is stylishly fitted out with wood furnishings and modern art, setting the scene for a warm and refined dining experience. Relax inside or soak up the crisp air outdoors underneath the shady trees as you sample a seasonal menu bursting with modern flavours. A meal at Pod Food may include venison with radish, goats cheese, grapefruit and beetroot, or perhaps spatchcock, with paprika choucroute, morcilla and turnip; expertly matched with a wine from an impressive list of local and international drops. For a sweet treat try a cinnamon doughnut with macadamia ice cream.
