My wife and I tried this out and had a great time, it was different to dine in a tram traveling through the city at a slow comfortable pace. We live in Christchurch outer area's and seen the city many times but it was refreshing to see things from the tram. The food and the service was great. Pickup start point and drop off was on time. We will do this again in about a year so we can see how the city progresses with the earth quake repair work. I recommend this to anybody that wants a different experience with dinning.

We are glad to hear you enjoyed your evening on the Tramway Restaurant! There has certainly been a lot of building progress around the tram's central city route with plenty more planned, so the Tramway Restaurant does offer a great way to see the rebuild. We are happy you enjoyed the food and service,and we look forward to welcoming you back on board in the future.

We loved the tramway around. Because the route is so small you tend to see everything multiple times. The food was well cooked. We both had the venison which was a little dry. The staff was very nice. It is a little costly for what it is but I think you’re paying for the experience. I would recommend to others when in Christchurch.

The tram was clean and on time. Entrés on tables waiting, with a glass of bubbly. We had chosen the wine match option, the matches were perfect. All New Zealand wines of course. The staff were helpful and the motor man gave a few city highlights.
