We caught up in Martinborough with friends and booked dinner at Tirohana on recommendations. Arranged for the courtesy shuttle (there and back) - fabulous service especially in Martinborough. Welcoming place with a wonderful set menu - extraordinary value for money. With advance warning they were able to cater to our friend who has a number of allergies and they were... More

My husband thinks I am a harsh critic of restaurants. It is very, very rare that they get all of it right. Tirohana has it down to a tee. The location, ambience, service, menu, it was all perfect. The menu is set, one price for 3 courses, with just a few choices, but here were even choices for a vegan,... More

The service at Tirohana is always great. Toby makes the effort to go round and speak with all the guests. The service was excellent, there were a... More

Eight friends and I had the pleasure of dining at Tirohana Estate for dinner to celebrate my 50th birthday, and what an absolute pleasure it was! We were collected from our accommodation and taken to Tirohana Estate. Toby took fabulous photos of our group before we were greeted in the foyer and handed a beautiful drink before being seated in... More

We celebrated our girlfriends 50th with friends and found everything absolutely fantastic. Toby picked us up from Peppers, he was so hospitable and funny, we laughed the whole trip. Our meal was to die for. Thanks so much we had an amazing night.

Toby and all the staff were very friendly. No $5 fee to taste the wines like the other wineries. Lunch was fabulous. The best winery in Martinborough!

We booked in for a large group of 13 celebrating a birthday and anniversary. We were greeted at the door with a welcoming drink, the wonderful hospitality continued and made the night extra special. Toby and his team were attentive but also gave us space to move around and take sojourns out to the patio to enjoy the sunset. The... More

We had planned on having a la carte but the chef had badly burnt her fingers the night before, so platters were the only meal available. Delicious. Loved sitting outside under the umbrellas, enjoying the view, while listening to the music cleverly piped from a wine barrel on the terrace.
