Rātā's mission is to provide the best eco-friendly culinary experience through sustainable practises and a cyclic approach, bringing nature to your plate.

With a stunning view and surrounded by birdlife, Rātā offers modern New Zealand cuisine with a conscience and a native twist. The ethos here is working with what nature provides to make delicious food and drink that’s not only sustainable, but gives back to the earth.

We compost all food waste, napkins, & coffee grinds to grow organic produce from our on-site vege garden. If we can’t grow it, we source it locally where we can. All other waste is recycled where possible, and we use bio-degradable packaging and ‘planet-friendly’ cleaning products. We also use organic milk, free range eggs, chicken & pork, and sustainably-sourced seafood.

Rātā is an important source of income for the Karori Sanctuary Trust, which manages ZEALANDIA. All proceeds directly benefit the Trust and help to make its 500 year restoration vision a reality.
