“A really fun night”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2014

The food was nice, without being amazing. However, considering that it was prepared in a tram.....very good. The best part of the experience was the staff. They were so much fun, and really gave a good impression of enjoying their jobs(which they probably do). I would highly recommend the Tramcar Restaurant to everyone visiting Melbourne.

“Tramcar Restaurant Bliss!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2014

There were four of us "girls" away for a long weekend and we were advised to do the tramcar dining and we're very glad we did. The food was amazing and the service was lovely. We did lunch as we thought the late dinner was very expensive. The only thing I would fault was that there was no dessert. The cheese board was very nice but I would rather have had something sweet to finish off my meal. The wine selection was lovely and very plentiful. All in all a very pleasant experience!

“Great dining experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2014

We celebrated our wedding anniversary on the Colonial Tramcar Restaurant and it didn't disappoint. The food was delicious, the staff were friendly and it was a great atmosphere dining as you travel through Melbourne. Would definitely do this again. We booked about three weeks before we went and got the last two seats on a Tuesday night, so I would definitely book well in advance if you want a particular date.

“"Forget the 7 Wonders of the World"......Tramcar Restaurant is better!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2014

Went on Tramcar Restaurant for late dinner last night to celebrate my 50th Birthday. My husband & I enjoyed every minute. The whole ambience of the great Food and Wine and the excellent service provided by Warwick and Chef Gary was from a bygone era. It was fantastic. There were several birthdays within our section of the car including myself and we all received a candle in our dessert and Warwick had everyone sing "Happy Birthday" to us all. It was great. We had a pleasant trip round city and out to St Kilda pier. Views at night were good. Is equal to 5 star dining anywhere.
Thankyou Warwick and Chef Gary for a wonderful night and great Birthday.
Would highly recommend to any one visiting Melbourne.
