One of the few that offers a dinner with wine. The Prix Fixe was $59 for three courses. Of course your wine selections would add to the price. I was able to sample a few of the wines and they were great. Staff was very friendly. You eat in a tent that is well appointed.

Lovely, relaxed, unhurried dinner. Personalised service, food matched to their wines. We made the excellent choice of their rich, yummy Pinot Noir. Staff was very helpful and friendly. We were made to feel truly special. Pick up and return service to our hotel was an added bonus. The food was exquisite with unusual flavour pairing and the chef actually mingled... More

After a great wine tasting and discussion with Toby, we had lunch in the restaurant. Wonderful meal -- smoked salmon, beef and lamb entrees and pumpkin bread pudding (specialty of the house) and another glass of wine (beyond the tastings). Highly recommend. Toby is wonderful.

If you are in this area this is a great choice, possibly the best choice, to stop for a meal. The service is very friendly. The food is delicious and presented beautifully. We stopped here for lunch and loved it. The mains were beef, lamb, fish, or a spinach and kumara fritata. The prices are reasonable. All the mains were... More

Local Isite recommended Tirohana estate for dinner when we inquired about dinner in a winery, little did we know about how amazing it would be. Toby kindly picked us up from our camp and delivered us to the estate where we were greeted by staff and a glass of "drink" followed by a wonderful 3 course meal. I had the... More

We dined here as part of group that included our young baby. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. The owner even took bub for a walk while we ate our main! Table service was lovely, nothing too much trouble. They quickly reorganised at our request to eat dessert on the patio. The food was great (prosciutto wrapped peach entrée... More

Romantic wedding anniversary dinner for Tracey and I was everything we could hope for. The potato and cauliflower soup of the day was excellent, the Moroccan rubbed lamb cooked to perfection and for dessert, the pumpkin spiced bread and butter pudding for Tracey and the sublime chocolate mousse cake for me. As I had my designated driver on hand, I... More

OMG Best dinner restaurant in Martinborough. Fantastic food. Three course dinner for $65. Matched wines were approx $14/glass. Staff were amazing! They will even collect and drop you home after (free taxi service) so you can really appreciate your meal.
