“Great evening!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2013

Had a wonderful evening with my man as we don't go out often without the children! We used our Flybuys points for an early 3 course dinner. Dinner was delicious as they catered for my special dietary needs and the drinks (alcohol) just kept coming! Great atmosphere, friendly staff lots of laughs. Thank you for an enjoyable evening.

“A fun night”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013

A fun night, definitely free flowing champagne. The guys on our tram were a hoot and made the night memorable. Would definitely go again with tourist friends for an introduction to Melbourne. Lots of food too - dips and crackers, entree, main, cheese, more wine, dessert, coffee (the only average thing of the night). Never a dull moment!

Had a lovely night out aboard the Tramcar restaurant, very ritzy - felt like we stepped back in time! Thanks to Chef Dot, Joe and Melanie for serving us.

“A great two hour experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2013 via mobile

Carl was a fun waiter and constantly renewing your wine.
The food was good considering it was all prepared before hand.
The trip around Melbourne was great.
