5 star rating: Highly Recommended April 2018

When I was booking our trip to NZ and Christchurch, I couldn't help but notice this tram dinner tour. Gee, that looks like fun. So I book it about four months in advance. We fully expected the food and wine to be mediocre, the prime feature of the tour being aboard a tram winding its way through downtown Christchurch. What a surprise! The Tram is restoration work of great skill and love for the history of trams in NZ. The actual tram car may be from elsewhere Australia?, but completely authentic with the touch of artisan craftsmen's careful restoration. But then there is the food, wine and, most outstanding, the service! I apologize for not remembering names because the on-board service crew are few and exemplify the easy going kindness and friendliness of Kiwis everywhere. They certainly made the event one to remember! The food and wine were superb we highly recommend the wine pairing. The dishes, prep and presentation, are worthy of fine restaurants worldwide. As I said, What a Surprise. Do this full throttle, you won't regret it.

Ok there is not a big route for the tram to follow but service and foods was really good and staff went out of their way to make this an occasion. We had to leave early to get back to a cruise ship and the chef gave us a doggie bag to take away. Would give 6 stars if I could.

My Husband and I took a trip on the Tramway Restaurant for my Birthday and it was such a lovely evening. the food choice of food was great and what we had was delicious! The atmosphere of the whole evening was relaxing, and we would both thoroughly recommend it.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended January 2018

Great food and service. A different look at Christchurch though you do tend to go around a small area. This however is understandable under the circumstances of rebuilding

A must do experience. The food and wine were amazing. How the food is prepared and delivered so well in a such small space is a real achievement. Do not expect a commentary. It's not what this is about. Just enjoy the evening view of a newly emerging Christchurch and the company.
I'm not sure whether it was by accident or design but we were placed near people with whom we were able to have a great evening.

Great food, great time. We were only in Christ Church for a day. So we had a great meal and got to see the city. Every one was wonderful.
