Rata

4 Venues. Powered by Kounta since 2015

Intro

Award-winning Kiwi chef Josh Emett and successful restauranteur Fleur Caulton teamed up to open the first Madam Woo in Queenstown in 2013.
Emett worked for Gordon Ramsay for more than 10 years before linking up with Caulton to collaborate on their first restaurant together, Rata. After the success of their first high-end dining experience in Queenstown, the pair went on to open Madam Woo, which has been well-received by both the local and tourist communities. Since then, Emett and Caulton have opened three additional locations nationwide as well as a spinoff of the Madam Woo brand, Hawker & Roll.

Instagram post 17857862071148272 Cheese rolls are on my mind so I feel like I need to tell you how good the Southland Cheese Roll is ratajoshemett in Queenstown. Served with bitter leaves, pickled swede, hazelnut, honeycomb, fig. It's a must on my list every time we are in Queenstown.
Instagram post 17978350627200253 Today has been a long one... hit driving range in the dark before  my 7.30am tee off, solid round of golf in perfect conditions, finishing on -7... unlikely to make cut 🏌️‍♂️ ⠀
⠀
Spent afternoon rata_joshemett - menu tasting, dish development and spending time with the crew. First class with everything on point. ⠀
⠀
Here’s a picture of Claire, who's been with us from day 1, seven years at the helm ...heading the front of house team. The truth behind this big smile, however, is the new pair of shoes she’s wearing! ⠀
⠀
In stories head over to see some rata_joshemett behind scenes shots from today and expect a few more golf related stories to come over the weekend... I’ve got some cracker dishes I want to demo next week. ⠀
⠀
Happy Friday - what are you planning to cook this weekend? ⠀
