Great food, great friendly service, and just a great experience all round - probably our best dining experience ever. Vegetarian option was really good and tasty, meat free meatballs, and they were really flexible about what they'd do. A free shuttle from Martinborough is also very handy.

We'll absolutely be going back for special occasions. It's best to book well in advance if possible, it was completely full when we were there.

OMG! What a beautiful dining experience. Dinner at Tirohana has to be in the top 10 meals of my life thus far...perhaps the top 5. The service from Toby was delightful. The food...well...amazing! The NZ lamb was cooked to perfection. The berry cheesecake with chocolate ice cream ...YUMMO!!! I would love to return one day. Thank you Tirohana Estate.

Amazing meal and incredible value. For $59 per head we had one of the best meals out of many great meals on our holiday in New Zealand. The restaurant is fixed price for three courses including amuse bouche, welcome drink and chocolates. The intensity of flavor in the amuse bouch cream of tomato soup was spectacular and set the tone for the rest of the delicious meal. The restaurant is in a beautiful building set with elegant tables and comfortable chairs. Wonderful, informative service from Toby who also provided the brilliant service of driving us to and from the restaurant from our accommodation in the Martinborough village. Thanks for a great night. Denise and David McKay from Canberra, Australia.

We were hosting a Chinese delegation and chose Tirohana Estate for dinner because we had enjoyed the food and hospitality there on previous visits. Right from the time we first contacted Toby to discuss possible options he was very helpful and provided immediate responses. The food and service on the night was excellent and our visitors thoroughly enjoyed themselves.
