So glad we did this.....a uniquely Melbourne experience. Great food and service while rumbling along the tram tracks through south melbourne and St Kilda. Only criticism is it’s a little rushed, but overall definitely worth doing.

The seat space should be fine. The couple next to us who where definitely not small people seemed to enjoy the ride and meal. If you get extra seating great but not essential.
