The Low Down on Chef T (AKA Tony Davis)

Chef T began his journey as an apprentice Chef in New Zealand (we won’t hold that against him) at The Park Royal, Christchurch. He then moved onto Wanaka Edgewater Resort where he was a heli-ski instructor by day and Chef by night…

After his time as a ski bunny/Chef, Tony moved to the city of Pineapples and Banana Benders where he opened the well-known Il Centro Restaurant. He did such a great job there that Brett’s Wharf commissioned him to open their seafood restaurant around 1995.

Tony was an Executive Chef for some of Brisbane’s best restaurants including FIX Restaurant, Port Office Hotel, Cafe San Marco, Southbank, just to name a few…

Chef T put his culinary skills to the test in 2000 and won the QLD Chef of the Year and ranked 3rd as the QLD representative for a Pork Australia competition.

On a personal note, Tony has lived in The Gap for over 12 years with his boys Jayden and Jai and his gorgeous partner Margie.

Surprisingly Chef T doesn’t play golf but loves to cycle instead, Mountain Biking in particular at The Gap Reserve.

Approached by Ashgrove Golf Club in 2013, Tony opened Zegatos with the support of the directors. He continues to deliver excellent service and superior meals to The Gap and surrounds.

And the rest they say is history…
