Very impressed with the meal, free glass of champagne on arrival. There were 3 couples, seating was a table of 4 and table of 2. We went on the second seating left at 7.30pm and the tram did the circuit a few times, great way to see Christchurch and have a great meal.

What a thoroughly enjoyable, relaxing & intimate dining experience! Had a fab evening with my Husband aboard the Tramcar Restaurant - excellent service from Amy (polite, professional, friendly & informative), delicious food (thanks to chef Jason) and various wines chosen to perfectly match each course! (Port with the cheeseboard). Carl took our tramcar around the city route, in a circle,... More

We took the late dinner option which lasted around 2.5 hrs and we covered the same route through the CBD several times because the length of track is limited. The staff were wearing period dress to match the tram car age, theme and decor, they were very friendly & accommodating. The dishes were good to excellent except for the pork... More

The dining tram was suggested by our self-drive tour company. We thoroughly enjoyed the evening. A colonial style dining tram loops central Christchurch several times. We chose the 4 course dinner which gave us choices of steak, roasted pork, fish or vegetarian. The food was perfectly prepared. A complimentary glass of bubbly was a very nice touch. Service was perfect.... More

Having dined out in various restaurants on holiday, we decided to book on the tramway restaurant - you get a 3 course meal on the team as it goes around the centre of Christchurch. The food was good, well cooked and presented, but not outstanding. It is served on a moving tram though! I had clams, sirloin beef and cheese.... More

My wife and I had a very pleasant dinner on the tramway restaurant. The tram car has lots of original character, food was good and the service we had was very good. The route of the tram is quite limited so inevitably during the course of two or so hours you pass the same places a number of times but... More

Since March 2015, I have been working and residing at 122 Barbadoes Street, Cathedral Presbytery. I used walk during evenings through these area of Worcester Street in front of the Tramway Restaurant. And once I had a cup of coffee together with my friends in this restaurant. I enjoyed that evening.

Book your table in advance at the tramway ticket office in Cathedral Junction. The evening meal will be served during a two hour tram ride around the city. The price may be a bit expensive but the experience is "one off" and well worth it.

Was a brilliant night! I was surprised at the quality of the food as it was delicious! Usually those sorts of places the entertainment is great and food average. Not this place it was just delightful.
