We arrived at Tirohana to be greeted at the door with a Spritzer drink by the front of house guys. That set the tone for the rest of the evening. Exemplary service (you guys were amazing), excellent food, and the wine was perfect. After the...main and before dessert, we asked if we could pause and go outside as the weather was stunning. This was no problem at all for the staff who encouraged us to take our wine out and enjoy. As it was my birthday, and they had earlier celebrated another customers birthday, I tried to slip away but they caught me and low-key made me feel special! An all round perfect evening so definitely recommend.More

We had a fabulous lunch with the team at Tirohana Estate. Despite the muggy weather, all the staff, behind their masks were upbeat, humorous and helpful - nothing was too much trouble. We had a delightful meal consisting of entree, mains and desserts with wine...pairing. The staff then surprised us with complimentary and impromptu birthday treat of truffles. Highly recommendMore

A highlight of the year. If you are trying to decide where you might eat out in Martinborough look no further than Tirohana. Beautiful food, finally, a chef has mastered the art of cooking lamb. We had a great night, superb service with friendly welcoming...staff and a pick up and drop off from and to our accomodation. These guys are a national icon. Well done.More

Dinner for 7 was delightful. Greeted with a light and fabulous drink and seated by the fire. The personable maître’d walked us through the menu and boasted of the best bread and butter pudding in the entire universe. The entrees of which we ordered a...royal sampler we all phenomenal. The mains were perfectly portioned and delightful. All of this was accompanied by 2 flavourful bottles of Pinot noir. The desert delivered and came with a fantastic fortified pinot which we really enjoyed. The restaurant was very covid responsible and I would recommend this for groups 16+ in age looking for a nice night out and a bit of sophistication in their lives. Enjoy your night out here, they are also fantastic at catering for dietary requirements and just very friendly all round.More

We had a wonderful night out with friends. We were made very welcomed, the staff were great and the service was fabulous, with the added bonus of been picked up and dropped off. My Smoked Rack of Lamb was delicious and my choice of cheese...cake for dessert was perfect, not to heavy. The table did request more seasoning. We had a stroll around outside between the main and dessert and viewed an amazing Martinborough sunset. A very pleasant evening.More
