JUDY C - 1/02/2012
On two occasions with the last being the most memorable. Hubby & I were celebrating our 39th. Wedding Anniversary (It amazed me he even remembered) & his identical twin brother & his wife were visiting from interstate & shared the fabulous night time dining experience with us. I do not have ONE word of complaint with either the food OR the staff. I give them both 10 out of 10 & how the young Chef managed to turn out such delectable food in the small kitchen space was beyond us. Now, having said all that if the STAFF were asked to review the PASSENGERS on that night (I won't give a date). I am sure that the 'Twinnies' absolutely endeared themselves to ALL onboard & whats more they did not even charge a fee for the entertainment they provided. I believe they would have scored a twenty out of ten. Our great night ended on the way home with my other half desperately needing the loo so we pulled in to a servo & off he rushed only to find the door locked when he got there. Needless to say the wonderful WINE which was included free with our meals promptly made itself evident straight through the light coloured fabric of his trousers (he didn't think to head for the bushes) much to the delight of all the motorists fuelling their cars. Was I embarrassed for him.... NOPE I couldn't stop laughing. So yes, I have dined on the Colonial Tramcar Restaurant and can't recommend it highly enough. A credit to Melbourne.
