Finally able to get a booking for dinner. Make your booking well in advance or be disappointed. Food was great, drinks just kept coming (if you are a big drinker this is definitely worth it). Well organised. I would like to say a big thank you to chef Eddie, Peter Sarah and I particular a very special thank you to... More

Staff so very welcoming and the tram ride so pleasant, great to visit St Kilda in comfort and see the changes here. Just superb food and service with the bonus of the scenery. Staff really helpful and courteous.

Visited here for a romantic dinner and we enjoyed the whole experience . However we were seated on LHS of tram. This was very small and we felt crammed in. People seated on right had bigger areas .. Also wine was terrible ..food was ok.

What a great way to spend the evening celebrating a special occasion. A beautiful restaurant that works its way around the city while you enjoy some culinary delights! The on board crew were very friendly, attentive and made sure we were very well looked after! A unique experience which, although a little pricey, is absolutely worth doing.

What a fantastic night out - and amazing value. A girlfriend and I treated ourselves to the 5 course late dinner while enjoying a few days in Melbourne. The food was beautiful, the service discreet and attentive and the tram car very comfortable. Your alcohol is included in the price and we were constantly being offered more to drink. I... More

This is a great experience in Melbourne for young and old and even those that don't think it would be a cool thing to do. Food is fabulous, service is excellent and it is a very enjoyable experience to share with someone you love.

Food was surprisingly very good! We had the 5 course late dinner, the steak was superbly cooked, and dessert fabulous. 5 courses but not too much, not too little. As much wine as you liked, which is a bonus, and all included in the price. Must mention the service as well, the staff were attentive to detail, yet friendly and... More
