This restaurant would not be out of place in any culinary destination. The service was friendly, efficient and unintrusive whilst the food and wine blended to form a highly satisfying experience. We walked from the centre and worked up an appetite but the management insisted on driving us back. Altogether a memorable experience.

Our evening wash perfect from start to finish. When I made the booking we were offered a complimentary pick up and return! A three course meal for only $59.00, offered great choice of food sourced locally and we thoroughly enjoyed each of the Tirohana wines we selected. Sevice was outstanding!

We recently wanted somewhere "nice and quiet" to dine with a friend and living in Masterton most of the local places are sports bars, bars and noisy. Made a last minute decision to drive all the way to Martinborough (45 mins) and try Tirohana Estate. Wow, Wow, Wow. Have finally found somewhere in the Wairarapa where you get amazing service,...

We popped in for a tasting and were keen on the dinner menu so we booked for a meal. Such a great decision. Toby, Sandra and Daryl were wonderful to us and you can't beat the pick up and drop off service. All the food was so so tasty. Fantastic night and good value. Thanks Tobias for working so hard...

We had dinner here on Sunday night at it was fantastic. A free shuttle collected us from our hotel and the staff met us at the van with umbrella's and walked us to the front door as it was raining - a really nice touch. Toby was our driver and as I found out was the boss as well -... More

I was picked up from my hotel and serviced with great food and wine. Highly recommended for a business dinner or couples night out. The restaurant also has a little museum with great collections. For the first time i didn't have to worry about driving after having great food and wine.

The food, the service, the ambience, the menu, the friendliness, and, yes, the wine. All of it was great The courtesy shuttle is a nice touch. I highly recommend Tirohana and I'd go back in a heartbeat. Thoroughly enjoyed it.

Thanks Tironhana for an entertaining and very pleasant day. A large group of us had such fun with your sommelier/maitre d. We were loved and cared for - the wine flowed (good for the till) the food was more than adequate, the setting was very clever with white linen and green vine leaves - a special look. The food was...
