The whole experience was fantastic! The meal was great, the staff were all very courteous and professional, and the tram ride itself was an awesome way to see Christchurch on our first eveningthere. Would recommend to everyone, and would go back myself if in Christchurch again.

Nostalgic experience.

Wonderful food, service and experience. My friend enjoyed the wine matching with the meal. The carriage is beautifully restored with polished wood and fabrics.There is a toilet on board but as expected on a train, it is small and very low. People with limited mobility may find it difficult to use although there is a hand rail. There is a toilet stop after the mains are served back at the boarding point. The journey then continues for dessert.

Excellent evening in Christchurch

Great travelling on a vintage team enjoying a four course meal. Food was excellent, even more so considering the tiny kitchen the chef had to prepare in for 40 people, and service wonderful. Thoroughly recommend.

Absolutely well worth the experience. Staff were polite and professional. The meal was so tasty and was such a nice way to celebrate out wedding anniversary. Very good value for money.

Very small seats

Unique experience (and for that reason I recommend doing it). Food is OK, but not more than that. Reason for my "average" rating is that the seats are really small if the "assign" the small tables (tables for "two persons") to you.

We are locals from Christchurch and decided to try the Tramway restaurant for our recent wedding anniversary. What a great way to spend an evening!! The food was amazing, service was 1st class and it's also a great way to see some of the changes to this ever changing and evolving city. Highly recommended way to spend an evening.
