We’re proud to be different, we grow 100% New Zealand tea. There is a lot going on at Zealong Tea Estate. Come and share an experience with us today. Stay up to date and don’t miss a thing.
Nestled in the heart of the picturesque countryside, the Camellia Restaurant is the original dairy farmhouse converted into a familiar, yet all-new country style bistro that combines French techniques with local seasonality.
French born; Executive Chef Jean-Baptiste Pilou joins us for the next chapter of his already extra-ordinary career that includes working in the kitchens of some of Paris’ finest restaurants. Joining him is Valentina Avecilla, Zealong's Executive Pastry Chef, and an internationally experienced kitchen team.
Together they bring with them a very special take on using locally sourced ingredients, focusing on hand made and sustainability.
