It was a great experience, delicious food. A table for two with a glass of bubbles and a divine starter. We enjoyed the tram ride stopping along the way, taking in all the nightlife and happenings in town. Ending with dessert and a coffee. Full dining experience, 4 courses, smaller servings with stunning flavours. Something you have to experience in Christchurch.

Lovely warm ambiance on a cold Winter night Beautifully set tables with appetizer and blush champagne awaiting us Very friendly welcome from a top notch waiter Joe Food was supberb and beautifully presented Christchurch at night just lovely with many lights and friendly people waiving as we circled around Highly recommend

This was a truely lovely experience. Great food, great ambience and we were made very welcome by the hospitality staff. A very nice touch to take our coats on entering the tram. I would highly recommend this. Only downside- the toilets at the terminal (not on the tram) were disgusting.

Definitely a must do. Even if you only do it once make a booking you wont regret it. It is a unique experience.

Lovely meal, helpful, knowledgeable staff. Would do it again, maybe in the summer next time.
