Colonial Tramcar Restaurant Tour of Melbourne

Colonial Tramcar Restaurant in Melbourne

Board the Colonial Tramcar Restaurant in Melbourne, on the south bank of the Yarra River, and take a seat at your table inside this restaurant on wheels. While you soak up the period atmosphere of the 1948 tramcar, outfitted in velvet and brass like vintage European Pullman-style trains, enjoy modern amenities such as climate control, one-way windows and onboard music.

The attentive staff includes a maitre d’ and professional silver-service waiters, who make sure you enjoy your 4-course lunch, 3-course early dinner or 5-course leisurely late dinner, depending on option selected when booking. You’ll dine on dishes prepared on board with fresh local ingredients; drinks are available from the full bar. (See below for sample menus.)

While you eat, admire the sights of the city as you travel from South Melbourne to St Kilda, Prahran and Malvern.

Another great lunch outing on tramcar, such pleasant and obliging wait staff who add a lot of humour and good spirit to the day. Lots of well presented food and a generous supply of bubbly. A great way to spend an afternoon.

This is my third time on the Tramcar Restaurant and the service and food is great. It is a great way to see the city by night whilst enjoying lovely food and drinks. It is suitable for couples or group of four onto one table.

My husband and I did the late dining. The food Is of high a standard . It was a novatiy thing to do while on our visit to Melbourne . Perhaps a bit of history about the tram itself would if been good . Old fashion sophistication the Colonial Tram Restaurant Tour Is certainly well worth doing .
