Welcome to The Wanderer.
A different approach to hospitality and gastronomy. A home for foodies, gourmets, culinary explorers and wanderers.
One table, and One menu…
For an evening of culinary discoveries and conviviality.
Our six course Discovery Menu showcases island-grown ingredients and highlights unique seasonal products from Madeira, in a modern and creative way. Hand-picked, sometimes foraged in the wild, and masterfully combined. Using new-age cooking techniques, and culinary influences gathered from years of wandering around the World.
A Chef’s Table:
The experience is different from more conventional restaurants. We look to share a memorable moment with guests we welcome into our world. Conviviality is at the heart of the evening. Illustrated by the one large dining table around which all guests take seats.
This dining style, now rather unusual for restaurants, was once a custom in the hospitality industry of many countries. And is still a norm for most families dinners, official dinners and banquets. It allows every guest to interact, and share the discovery of the menu dishes.
To focus on the experience, we have a restricted number of seats. Another reason for this limited capacity is that we forage some of the ingredients in the wild. In the forests and hills of Madeira. Therefore their availability is limited, and we only take smaller quantities.
A Discovery Menu:
Another central part of the experience at The Wanderer revolves around a modern and creative culinary journey: a convivial discovery of tastes, flavors, colours and textures. In a symphony of dishes, executed and explained by the Chef and his team. Throughout the various creations on the Discovery Menu.
With culinary influences stretching over several continents and en-globing multiple cultures. Crossing the boundaries between ancient and modern in a playful manner. A shared celebration of hospitality and gastronomy among foodies, wanderers and gourmets.
No “a la carte” options available.
