Our Executive Chef ~ Guillaume Zika
Guillaume Zika is the Executive Chef at the Burleigh Pavilion Group who has over 20 years of international culinary experience.
Following his cooking education and training in France, he spent his formative years working in various Michelin Starred restaurants in both Paris and Côte d’Azur until 2008, when he began his international stints in New York and London.
In 2014 he became Executive Chef at fine dining restaurant, Cottage Point Inn, located in Sydney’s north for three years, where he earned two Australian Good Food Guide Chef Hats, and began his journey and love affair with Australia.
Since 2018 Zika has been applying his cooking philosophy of fresh, simple, and memorable food on the Burleigh Pavilion Group’s menus, which include The Tropic Restaurant, Burleigh Pavilion, as well as off-site catering and events.
Inspired by the ocean surrounding the venues, Zika has created a Mediterranean and modern Australian menu at The Tropic where he gravitates to Australia’s best fish and seafood as hero menu dishes.
