We have been on the Tramcar twice and enjoyed both experiences enormously. You need to book well ahead as the Tramcar is very popular and for good reasons. The food is great and the atmosphere, within the Tramcar, is really enjoyable and kept upbeat because the waiters seem to be like professional actors in disguise with an ongoing entertaining style. One of the highlights of the Tramcar, for me, was the hilarious reaction to the Tramcar passengers by many of the local Melbournians whilst you travel through the streets of the city! Most of the Melbournians waved and smiled, we had a couple of revellers poke funny faces and someone in a passing car "mooned" us - some people may find this offensive, but my husband and I really laughed and enjoyed the quirkiness of it all. The food, whilst not gourmet, is very enjoyable and the drinks keep coming. The Tramcar is not an inexpensive restaurant but you are paying what I think to be a reasonable cost for a unique experience. We highly recommend the Tramcar to anyone wanting something different in Melbourne which is such a fabulous city. We loved it!
