My mum has taken everyone else in my family on the tramcar and raved about it every time. I must say she did not lie about anything. It was purely amazing. The service from Peter and chef Mel was impeccable. The food was brilliant and cooked to perfection. I must say it was one of the best dinners I have... More

This was one of the highlights of our holiday in Australia. We came with no great expectations but were impressed by the friendly service given by Ari Fran and Rita. The food was of a very high standard, the setting reminiscent of the Orient Express, and from the moment we boarded there was a great part atmosphere. We can thouroughly... More

If you like dining out and having an experience you will remember then this is a must do. Seeing the city glide past at night as the fantastic staff serve delicious food and drinks is a treat we should all experience at least once. Remember to book way in advance for this one.

With an almost two month waiting list I was more than ready to experience the Tramcar Restaurant. And yes, it was worth it! the excellent servers, Antoine and Francesca provided great service and the chef Ari cooked the steak well. Whilst the starter of dips was nothing to write home about, the salmon stack was fantastic! The avocado mousse and... More

This experience was fantastic. The meal cooked to perfection, and the drinks flowed freely. The staff ( Jess and Joe) were friendly and helpful. I would do this again given the chance and would strongly recommend this to everyone, whether it be a special occasion or part of a holiday.

A little squeezy with small tables, very little selection on menu but drinks are ok. Tasteful interior decor and a good sightseeing circuit for the Melbourne visitor. Good waitress service. Once is enough

This was a birthday gift and it was amazing. I thought it would be a one-off experience but both my husband and I would like to do it again. Food was great, staff were super friendly without being overpowering and the drinks flowed freely. Would highly recommend it.
