Prime Minister Julia Gillard has put on a brave face to host ambassadors at the Lodge after a tumultuous afternoon when she was mobbed by protesters.

Ms Gillard said she was fine following the incident in which a large group of Aboriginal protesters converged on an emergency services awards function she was attending with Opposition Leader Tony Abbott.

"The only thing that angers me is that it distracted from such a wonderful event with great people from emergency services," she said.

Wild scenes broke out at the Canberra restaurant where nearly 200 protesters trapped Ms Gillard and Mr Abbott before police arrived to clear a passage for the pair.

The protesters, from the nearby Aboriginal tent embassy, banged on the three glass sides of The Lobby restaurant chanting "shame" and "racist".

Ms Gillard and Mr Abbott had just spoken at a ceremony for the inaugural national emergency medals.
