Enjoy one of Melbourne's most unique dining experiences with a delicious 4 course meal aboard the Spirit of Melbourne Cruising Restaurant as it winds its way along the calm waters of the Yarra River past the glowing city lights of Melbourne! Over the course of 3 hours, you'll enjoy freshly-prepared food as well as a number of included beverages - both alcoholic and soft drinks - for the duration of your cruise included in the price of admission. Seeing Melbourne city at night provides an entirely new viewpoint on the skyline, which you'll be able to view from either the expansive viewing windows indoors or outside on the viewing deck.

Enjoy a tantalising tasting platter to start, then follow it up with your choice of several mains including chicken, fish, beef, lamb and a vegetarian option to ensure all tastes are covered. Indulge your sweet tooth with a choice of sticky date pudding or apple crumble, then cap everything off with a lovely cheese platter consisting of a number of Aussie cheeses, crackers, fruit and nuts. Ideal for both celebrating special occasions or simply for a classy and relaxing night out, this Melbourne dinner cruise is one of the more special ways to dine out in Victoria's capital.

The first time my partner and I have tried this. She has always wanted to go and so we did it. The food was very good better than I expected and complimenting with unlimited alcohol how could you go wrong. The staff were very attentive and well mannered. The only fault and this is very minor would be the route we take. Maybe we can’t go the other way on the Yarra and so we have to go that way. But then again that’s a very minor one.

Must do for couples and those looking for a night out on the Yarra to experience Melbourne’s CBD beauty
Jake Spackman 6 months ago

Must do for couples and those looking for a night out on the Yarra to experience Melbourne’s CBD beauty. Staff were amazing and accommodated all requests. Professional in ever manner bringing drinks out all night while having a chat about the cruise and city itself. All 3 course meals were perfect and served within a good time which allowed us to experience the top deck and have drinks in between meals. 10/10 would recommend.

It was not as straight forward to find Berth 3 or 4 as we had expected and a clearer explanation is needed
Jan Wood 6 months ago

It was not as straight forward to find Berth 3 or 4 as we had expected and a clearer explanation is needed. However once there everything went very well. Staff was all very pleasant and helpful. The food was well presented and in the right quantity and delicious. The drinks were served promptly when required and the wine was good. After dinner the liqueurs were limited to Mindori(green) and a brandy based drink. Neither were to my taste and more choice would have been good. The 4 of us all very much enjoyed the evening. Thank you!

Had a wonderful time
Jamie Whitford 7 months ago

Had a wonderful time, drinks flowed freely and staff were amazing. Would highly recommend to anyone looking to experience Melbourne by the water. As the sun set the whole mood changed, as everyone enjoyed the city lights. The food was nothing to complain about at all. Thanks for a good night

We truly enjoyed this Melbourne Dinner cruise which comes with free flow of wine
Angel 11 months ago

We truly enjoyed this Melbourne Dinner cruise which comes with free flow of wine, beer and drinks. We told ourselves we will do it again if we will visit Australia again! Even after the trip back, both hubby & myself have been talking about it as this was the most enjoyable and relaxing Dinner cruise we ever enjoyed with our parents. Thumbs up! A must do itinerary!

Worth every dollar
Jannah Wilso 11 months ago

Worth every dollar, the crew were fantastic and the food was also so delish. My husband and I would do it all again. It's a must-do experience. Very attentive and they really do know and love the job they are doing which is to give such pleasant experience for the customer.

We dined here to celebrate our first wedding anniversary
Imanthi Fernando 11 months ago

We dined here to celebrate our first wedding anniversary. It was a beautiful experience. The food and service were great. Although it was not an ideal romantic atmosphere for a romantic date (being too noisy and a bit packed), enjoying the city lights and amazing views on the upper deck was lovely. All in all it was an unforgettable experience.

Wow what an amazing experience
Shenel Fuldagli 12 months ago

Wow what an amazing experience, fantastically presented and delicious food, every course was sensational. Stunning views, the fantastic atmosphere inside boat and best of all the staff are so friendly and attentive. We will do this again, such a great night out. Thank you!

We found this experience to be excellent
Greg Lynch 12 months ago

We found this experience to be excellent. The 4 course dinner was excellent, the alcohol choices were premium and the service and friendliness of the staff and Captain was top class. Although it was Winter and a little cool, the night lights of the city were lovely and the Yarra, as always, pristine. Thanks for a great evening. We would do it again and recommend it to everyone.

We were so looking forward to this cruise being first-time visitors to Melbourne
Tracey Marra 1 year ago

We were so looking forward to this cruise being first-time visitors to Melbourne. For $140 per head, we expected fine dining and top shelf drinks. The boat set up was nice and our table was right next to the window, perfect! You had free drinks all night, but we didn’t get asked for a drink until the boat had even left the dock. There was no wine/beer/spirit list? You had to ask the waiter what was available. Staff were so busy with everyone else we waited for ages to find out what exactly was available? We ordered a vegetarian starter each and when this was served it was a bowl of barely cooked ribbon pasta with sauce poured out of a jar. There was no cheese, nothing? There was barely enough sauce to cover the pasta which was way undercooked. When the boat left we expected to be cruising through all the beautiful scenic buildings and down to the gorgeous Docklands and marina. Instead, we were told the boat was too tall for some of the bridges that way so we had to go in the opposite direction away from the city? Our scenery was the main road full of cars and traffic! Very disappointing! We had to chase a waiter 3 times to ask for a drink and there was 1 type of each wine, which was very low quality. Our main meal was Salmon and although it was overcooked it was nice. We had ordered a wine previously and without asking us staff just topped up our glass with the same wine. We then had to wait 10 mins to order another drink. We were never told we could go upstairs or outside and realised at the last minute we could do this, lack of communication! Dessert was nice and that was finished off with a cheese board. This was barely big enough for 1 person let alone 2? Our biggest concern of the whole evening was their safety announcement after we had taken off. People were talking, the room was noisy and the announcement was barely audible!! We had no idea what was said and where to go in the case of an emergency, this was unbelievable and must be improved!

Be sure to set aside time during your cruise to take in the views from the top deck - the views of Melbourne at night are wonderful, but bring a jumper or warm top just in case!
