“Great food, impeccable service and a lovely ambience”
Reviewed July 12, 2014 via mobile

My husband and I had a perfect evening at Tirohana. The service was faultless, the food was appropriately priced and cooked perfectly. Nothing pretentious but good flavours with good quality ingredients. They let us sample the wine before we made our choices and the aperitif and petit fours were wonderful little extras. To start the onion tart was delicious and the pork main was one of the best I've ever had out and cooked perfectly, out together well with the potato and vegetables. It was also my husbands birthday and they gave him a cake. We aren't from around Martinborough but most certainly it is a good excuse to return! Thank you to the staff at Tirohana.

This was reccomended to us by the owner of the Aylstone Motel, and it was more than good it was fantastic. The service was excellent and the three course dinner 5 star.

“Special welcome, superb dinner”
Reviewed June 20, 2014

We went for a romantic birthday dinner.
The welcome was lovely with an aperitif and a nice chat with our host.
We had a $59 3-course dinner (great value). All three courses were delicious and the recommended wine was just awesome.
The whole evening was a success and we will definitely recommend it to our friends

Tirohana Estate is the best dining experience we have had in a very long time. The service is amazing and the wine and cuisine a must whenever we can get through.

“Wonderful evening ”
Reviewed June 8, 2014 via mobile

Was in Martinborough for a wedding recently and the night before a group of eight of us went to dinner at tirohana. They picked us up from out accommodation and we're generally fantastic throughout the entire night then dropped us home again! I would recommend to anyone for the food and service.
