We were so disappointed that we missed our tram car experience due to our flight being delayed. We just wanted to thank the staff for the very helpful way that they stayed in touch with us and resold our seats so that we were able to get a refund. They could have resold the seats and still charged us. Thanks... More

If you are ever visiting Melbourne, this is a must not to be missed. 3 hours riding an old tram around Melbourne CBD fringe, South Melbourne, North Melbourne and St Kilda area while you are having a delicious 5 course dinner and complementary alcohol drinks. The friendly staff, Melanie, Antoine and young Tim are excellent company and easy on the... More

Standing in the cold wind of a Melbourne evening does not sound like a good start to the evening but how wrong can you be! So well organised are the staff that in a few minutes you are on the tram and on the way to a sightseeing tour combined with the most delicious food and wine and extremely sociable... More

Great experience, well organized. Nice food, plenty of drink. You never have to ask for a refill. Antoine was fun and gave good service. We had the late sitting which was 8.30 pm. It leaves from across the road from Crown Casino and travels up as far as St Kilda. It has nice decor inside and very comfortable.

Celebrated my birthday here with my partner, been exited as we do love trying at different restaurants, entree is lovely, love the dips, unfortunately the main meal...... Forget about it, it looks pretty basic in Australian Standard. The chicken was dried and over cooked, under seasoned, and too bland, and the sauce? Gee it's pretty bad. Lucky I am hungry,... More

The tram is unique and beautifully set out and from the time we checked in to the time we left the tram the service we received was... More

I have lived in Melbourne for 5 years but it took my sister Louise who visited from Christchurch for me to go on the Tram Restaurant. Loved the staff, our Chef was fabulous food was excellent and never once asked for a refill of the champers it was there. Absolutely amazed out how any one person can turn out meals... More

Out host, Rita met us at the tram stop (across from the Crown Casino) and welcomed us before the tram arrived. She was... More
