This was an amazing experience, 2.5 hours of dining in an intimate setting in a tram, amazing food & service. I had the matched wines & they were perfect to their courses. Service was spot on & my husband was presented with a mini tram & birthday card from all the staff that night! That made his evening. The quiet... More

Highly recommend dinner on the Tramway but book ahead on line. It was fully booked. We were met with a welcome drink of New Zealand sparkling wine. Dinner was delicious as were the wines paired with each course. The set up was very well done for a limited amount of space; table for four on one side of the aisle,... More

The satisfaction of dining out is in the experience including food outstandingly different from day-to-day fare. The Christchurch Tramway restaurant delivers handsomely. Some of the city sights such as the Bridge of Remembrance are lit after dark. I was able to get off and take a photo. The tram itself was almost full to capacity -about 34 diners with the... More

This was recommended to us and we booked online early to make sure we got a table. Walk ups on the night were being turned away, so suggest book in advance. The tour starts from the atrium alongside the 115 hotel (perfect if you are staying there as we were). Waiting is all under cover. The night we went they... More

Excellent night! Given the size of the kitchen on board the meal was excellent. Though when served some options did look better than others. The pork looked to be mainly fat, minimal meat and a lack of veg. But the gluten free options were great for my partner! I thought with such minimal space that may have been an issue.... More

I came across the restaurant when planning our trip to NZ from U.K. As our stop in Christchurch coincided with my hubby's birthday we decided to celebrate here. The atmosphere on board was fab from start to finish, the food was delicious with the wine pairing definitely a good idea, and with excellent service from Anita and Kelly throughout the... More

The Tram Depot (Stop #1) where the Tram departs from is located in a glass Atrium located behind the old Cathedral. The Restaurant has seating for about 40 people total in two sections (one at each end of the Tram) with the kitchen in the middle. The meal was a four course (starter, entree or appetizer, main and dessert). The... More
