This exceeded all expectations! Travelled on tram car number 6 with chef Sarah, the food was fantastic! Service was also brilliant with our host waiter Warwick. What a lovely evening spent for my birthday. Definitely something I recommend everyone do in Melbourne.

We were lucky enough to be given this experience as a wedding present. The waiters: Celine, Noel and Warwick were exceptional and the food (prepared by Jerome) was first rate. The drinks flowed freely and the tram was comfortable and warm.

My kids are your age (20, 18, 15). I haven't taken them on the tramcar because it gets expensive times 5 but they would love it. It is more relaxed but it's all about service, the fine food and the atmosphere. If you like... More
