Elevated dining in the heart of Frankton, Podium is a master in blending Kiwi flavours with the European kitchen. Best enjoyed from their esteemed dining room, this is a supper you're unlikely to forget.
A picture of restrained modernity, Podium's dynamic, open-plan dining room is the perfect place to mark a special occasion or simply enjoy the finer things in life with loved ones. A dramatic mix of stylish, monochrome furnishings, stunning contemporary lighting and plush cream sofas, Podium keeps things light and uncluttered to remarkable effect. What's more, the jaw-dropping landscapes are best marvelled at from the outdoor mezzanine, which occupies a front-row seat at The Remarkables.
Such a venue deserves your full attention, so take your time with some flavourful starters. From the fried cauliflower and warm housemade focaccia to the beef tartare and seared scallops, local ingredients are given the all-star treatment to form spellbinding, contemporary dishes.
For mains, the local story continues with grilled sirloin steak and pan-fried market fish, all with fresh seasonal sides that offer those familiar tastes we all crave at the end of a long day. Vegetarians are also treated to the likes of shiitake mushroom congee which is best kept well away from your favourite white shirt. And with a kids' menu available too, everyone is invited to the podium! This is where Frankton will steal your heart.
Please note that Podium is located within the Sudima Queenstown Five Mile hotel.
