‘The Colonial Tramcar Restaurant is an inner city dining experience that is simply too good to miss. From the moment one steps aboard this beautifully transformed old Melbourne tram it becomes apparent that one is in for a treat. It felt as though we had been whisked back in time. The whole two (or was it three) hour long experience, travelling sedately around quite a wide swathe of the city and suburbs, was great. We ate a magnificent four course meal served by immaculately dressed waitstaff whilst eating up the passing scenery as the sun went down. Highly recommended.’

What You Can Expect

There’s no better way to soak up the ambience of the Victorian capital than by booking a table on the famous Colonial Tramcar Restaurant. Climb on board an authentic, fully restored 1940s tramcar and be wined and dined as you travel around the streets of Melbourne taking in the sights. You can choose from a lunch departure, an early dinner or a late dinner, each of which offer varying menu options. Whether it’s the four-course lunch, three-course early dinner or more leisurely five-course late dinner, you’ll be treated to a truly unique dining experience.

You’ll board the Colonial Tramcar Restaurant in South Melbourne (near Crown Casino), and be welcomed by the attentive and friendly staff. Your meal is served as the tram travels through South Melbourne, St Kilda, Prahran and Malvern. Drinks are included and the open bar features a range of Australian wines, local and international beers, spirits, soft drinks, and tea and coffee.

The Colonial Tramcar Restaurant allows you to travel in complete comfort and style, with one-way windows, air-conditioning and heating as required, and a beautiful décor that reflects the Pullman-style European trains of days gone by.

For those looking to combine sightseeing with a superb dining experience, the Colonial Tramcar Restaurant is the ultimate Melbourne indulgence. All aboard and bon appétit!
