“Absolutely brilliant, a must do in Melbourne”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013 via mobile

Had the late 5 course setting, the chef was amazing he sang to us, Antonio the waiter was attentive and Jasmine was topping up our drinks without asking, we think its brilliant value for money and an amazing experience

“Fun”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013 via mobile

Had a really good experience on the tram car restaurant. The staff and service were incredible, they were absolute professionals. Just wish I had done it for lunch instead of dinner so I could see more out the windows.

“Outstanding in every respect”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

We had this recommended to us before we got to Australia, so I booked for 4 in advance.

I was a bit nervous that it might have been all about "the experience", with the food being secondary.

As I booked it for my partner's birthday, I'm delighted to say I could not have been more wrong.

The service was great, really friendly and knowledgable staff, and the food was just exquisite.

If you're ever in Melbourne, do this. You won't be disappointed.

“Amazing meals on wheels around Melbourne”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

From the organised staff preparing for the arrival of the tram to the disembarkation at the end of the trip a truly unique experience. Superb food plus friendly & entertaining staff made this a truly memorable evening. Excellent value for money and the inclusive bar flowed freely throughout the journey. A great way to see Melbourne at a relaxing pace whilst being waited on. One to add to your bucket list. We will definitely do this again when next in Melbourne.

“Rainy n cold outside excellent inside our mobile restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

An excellent adventure. Stunning service, beautiful food, fun way to have dinner! Bit of an adventure in the rain finding the team stop but it all added to the pleasure - delightful! Truly fun!
