The Wayfarer, nestled in the heart of Dunedin offers a relaxed yet vibrant atmosphere, setting the stage for a memorable dining experience, perfect for sharing stories and savouring moments with loved ones.

At the helm of The Wayfarer's culinary adventure is a team of passionate chefs who take pride in crafting dishes that are as visually stunning as they are palate-pleasing. Their menu is a testament to creativity and a deep respect for fresh, locally-sourced and unique ingredients native to New Zealand and South America. Each dish is a culinary journey across the Pacific Ocean to the vast continent of South America.

At The Wayfarer you'll find plenty of captivating illustrations on and in the building, but food is what they're most passionate about. We're heading to the southern hemisphere for South American specialties, from the endless coastline of Peru for braised lamb shank simmered in stout, to the sky-scaping peaks of the Andes for chicken leg with patatas bravas, and right down to Argentina for beef ribeye in a Malbec jus.

Big flavours such as these deserve some top-tier drinks, which is where their classic, signature and Latin cocktails come in. Serving tropical notes, as well as familiar favourites and everything you need to feel that South American party spirit, The Wayfarer have you covered from food to drinks and the warm orange and chocolate brownie at the end.
