Bellota Manager

Originally from Chile with Spanish heritage from his father, Carlos loves Spanish culture and the most importantly the food.  He brings with him the passion and energy of Spanish people, don’t be surprised if you see him dancing or singing around the restaurant. Carlos, Ernest and Holly make a great team and love to have fun at work so please come and meet them. Carlos can be contacted on

His favourite dish:

Carlos is a food enthusiast which is why he spends so much of his spare time at the gym! At the moment he’s falling in love with the new Bellota Pinxto Platter which has a variety of 5 different Pinxtos for only $29.95 which is a great value. He says that he could easily have two of them by himself, but don’t tell Ernest that!

Meet Ernest 

Bellota Head Chef

The knowledgeable and passionate Ernest has had a love of food since he was 10, learning everything he could from his grandmother and mother. After stints in a few Barcelona restaurants Ernest moved to New Zealand and found a little pocket of Spain at Bellota. What makes him feel so at home? The food is just like that he grew up with.

His favourite dish:
Paella with a great Spanish white wine.
