Tirohana Estate Restaurant
A unique dining experience awaits you in this elegant and evocative restaurant, surrounded by vines in the heart of Martinborough. With antique Mexican doors, original New Zealand artwork, Italian tiled floor, huge open fire, leather chairs and views directly over the vineyard, Tirohana Estate Restaurant offers clients a memorable experience of award-winning wine, premium cuisine with excellent service.
Our atmospheric Emporium is an ideal and secluded area in which to enjoy a pre-dinner drink or post-lunch coffee – with lunch and dinner available along with a traditional Sunday Roast table d’hote menu throughout the winter season. Weather permitting, clients are welcome to dine al fresco on the terraces overlooking the picturesque vines.
