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.

Absolutely fantastic. So glad after all the years of coming to Melbourne we decided to try this. Food was great and don't know how people get thru the 5 course as we did the 3 course and only just managed to get thru that. Matthew, Warwick and chef Jerome were brilliant and so funny and friendly. Can highly recommend a dinner date on the Colonial Tram.

Well done to Chef Athip, Karli and Emina for attending to our every need on this trip on the Colonial tram. The meal was lovely, our drinks were great and always topped up if we required. The Prosecco and wine tasted great. the service was first class. Travelling whilst sightseeing and enjoying a lunch on this beautiful old tram was a memory to treasure. If you visit Melbourne this trip is affordable and a must if you enjoy history sightseeing and good food and wine

This tour is excellent. We went on the late dinner tour and it was great to see the city in lights. The Waitress and the Chef were excellent as well. The waitress was friendly, efficient and very nice to talk to. She was well organised and lovely. the Chef was very nice, cooked the food very nicely and just a great guy. There was plenty of food and drinks and all of it was great tasting. We thoroughly enjoyed the night. I would recommend this to anyone.
