Public in Manuka is one of the best spots for lunch in the area. There’s both indoor and outdoor seating, friendly staff, efficient service and a range of menu options.
One way of sharing some new options is to order a couple of the appetisers.
The Calamari with roquette, pecorino and balsamic dressing $18 is well sized for sharing and has a great texture and flavour.
The Soft shell crab tortillas with corn salsa and chipotle, also $18, is not quite as good, but again a good size to share.
Canberra Entertainment Card holders need only pay for one meal, so it’s also great value.
