Really enjoyed our night on the tram. The food was excellent and beautifully presented and it was fun trundling round the city while we ate. Staff were very helpful and friendly and I would really recommend this for something different to do in Christchurch.

Lovely staff, awesome food, slight negative the ‘single’ seats are tiny and I am very slim. The ‘free bubbles’ on arrival was substandard but the rest of the experience SUPERB!

Enjoyable, unique experience! We had a lovely dinner on Friday night - canapés to start were tasty and the bubbles on arrival a pleasant surprise. The entree was a bit average, however the main of vension made up for it - so soft and mouth...watering! One caution - there is no toilet available on board (it looked like there might be, but we were told we couldn't use it) and the bathroom break was about 2 hours into the trip. We wish we were made aware of this prior to boarding, as we spent part of the trip quite uncomfortable.More

We're happy to hear you enjoyed your evening dining on the Tramway Restaurant! The venison main dish was certainly a favourite from our autumn 2022 menu. Our onboard restroom was unfortunately closed during the red traffic light level to comply with the social distancing requirements...More

A very enjoyable evening. Food was fantastic. The staff were so friendly and professional. We were welcome aboard and at the end they stood outside and thanks us for coming. Doesn’t come any better. Highly recommend.More

Took my small family of 8 on the Tram Restaurant to celebrate our Silver Wedding anniversary. The service was exceptional, great communication from start to finish. The food was exceptional, catered for our varied diets and food allergies no problem at all. Although we didn’t...do the wine pairing due to teenagers and non drinkers, the drinks list covered all pallets. Loved travelling around my old city and seeing the direction it is growing. We travelled in Covid times but felt completely safe and secure during the 2.5 hour trip. Would totally recommend anyone, young or old, to experience this event.More
