The first time I visited the Colonial Tramcar Restaurant was about 23 years ago! I have been back quite a number of times over the years since then and the experience dining in the Tram Restaurant had always been very positive and memorable. Although food was prepared in a tiny restaurant, but the food is excellent and very tasty. I would recommend everyone who visit or live in Melbourne to at least try to have this experience once! Highly recommended!

Our evening at the Tram Car Restaurant was a highlight of our trip to Melbourne. If you want to have dinner on the Tram you have to make reservations early as it books out. Also you have to be at your pick up point on time because they are on an active tram line they can't wait for you to arrive
We had a wonderful meal prepared by Chef David and John, served by Noel. Our 5 course dinner was accompanied by a choice of wines. Not only enjoyed the meal by the setting of being served in a restored tram car added to the feeling of elegance for the evening.

Great experience and a good way to see the city. The staff were fantastic and the food was very good too. Bit tricky to find the place but when the tram arrived the staff were top notch, funny and helpful. The food was really good starters, two choices of main and a selection of small deserts, wine and soft drinks. The trip is the right amount of time about 2 hours.

Many months ago now we booked the Colonial Restaurant Tramcar. We had enjoyed dinner on the Restaurant Tram a number of years ago to celebrate our wedding anniversary and were very much looking forward to doing so again in a little under 2 weeks time.

However...... yesterday 29 October, were phoned by travel agent who advised that the restaurant cars were going out of service from 31 October. .

The restaurant tram company must have know well in advance that this may have been a possibility, but did not think to advise their fare paying guests in order for those paying guests try an make alternative arrangements for the likes of wedding anniversaries, birthdays, family celebrations etc .

Will we able to book an upmarket restaurant with such short notice???? doubtful.

We do not live in Australia, our trip to Melbourne was most definitely based on another enjoyable Colonial Car Restaurant experience. This has been totally ruined. Thank you Colonial Tramcar Restaurant.

It simply is not possible for us to incur the expense of airfare, accommodation any time soon. Apparently the return date of the Colonial Tramcar Restaurant was not advised to travel agent.

What is the Colonial Tramcar Restaurant going to offer in providing an alternative for our wedding anniversary treat on 13 November?

We have twice dined on the Tramcar and would thoroughly recommend it to lovers of good food and good wines. It's really great value and a charming way to see Melbourne. Our last visit was in July and I meant to write something in praise of Chef Juan and wait staff Kaja and Warwick - what an asset these lovely people are to the company! We were pampered and entertained, fed and watered and when we pass through Melbourne next year on our way to New Zealand will be booking in again!

Unfortunately we arrived for our celebratory trip around Melbourne on the tram car to be told we could not travel, they could not give a reason? We had just arrived from New Zealand and was really looking forward to this experience. We chose to still have the meal and the staff let us know where we would have been had the tram been traveling. All round I cannot fault the staff, the service or the food. We had a great meal but were all very disappointed that we didn't get the trip around Melbourne that we had booked.

This was a great experience and one of the best ways to spend an afternoon. The meal by chef Virackt was outstanding and delicious and the service and good humour of Joe and Carlos made this a memorable time. Many thanks to all 3. Well worth doing.
