OMG! Delicious! A divine place to walk into for breakfast. It's a very popular place but the tables turn over relatively quickly so you won't wait for too long, if at all. The coffee is fantastic and the service was friendly and efficient. My husband had the smoked bacon sandwich with gentleman's relish for breakfast, the children opted for home... More

For what you get, astounding value. $30-$50+drinks will get you one of the best meals of Melbourne. Some of the best salads I've had anywhere, the lamb shared main is to die for. The raw tuna cubes are a must, as well as the beef tongue when it's on the menu. Best to turn up before 6 or later in... More

Found the menu a bit pretentious and although the food was great, I wouldn't go back as I don't feel the prices match the food. Portions are small, as is the food selection. Service was great, I loved the seating at the bar which enables you to watch the chefs do their thing. They all seemed very creative and passionate,... More

A small group met at the up-stairs part of this up-market trendy restaurant recently for a get-together and we ended up being squashed into a small space near the bar. One of the party had pre-organised the snacks menu and most were tasty while a couple were to avoid. The food service was good and snack serving sizes were adequate... More

Been here twice folks and really love this place, it has a really good atmosphere and just the widest selection of patrons that you could expect. The service is really good, not too close to be overpowering but attentive and the food is devine. All of the courses are designed to be shared and I've had the Lamb as a... More

Finally dragged my reluctant-to-ever-spend-money partner to Cumulus, one of my favourite restaurants and even he was impressed. Had a gift voucher to use from my parents and the restaurant manager spoke with me on the phone after I called to ascertain whether it would be a problem to use it a week or two after expiry. The manager guaranteed it... More

We missed breakfast but made it 20 minutes early for lunch service. We arrived at this very trendy casual venue and were shown to a shared table by a very pleasant gentleman.There seemed to be a lot of uber trendy types, along side the smart casual set breakfasting here. We were a little ill at ease as we assumed our... More

Cumulus was on our short list for breakfast in Melbourne and we were able to get there AND to get in on our first morning in Australia. Without question, it set the tone for the balance of our vacation. Fabulous. The restaurant was full when we arrived, but seats moved quickly. We settled off to the side and ordered a... More

Cumulus was extremely busy so we ended up in Cumulus upstairs, what a fantastic 1st night in Melbourne. The menu was varied, lots to choose from, Pate to start & steaks to follow these were cooked to perfection and to finish of the most beautiful dessert. The wine was very well priced as was the food, the service was relaxed... More

Whilst some of the food was delicious, the overal is quite basic. The wine selection is excellent, however not enought choice for serving by the glass. Some of the dishes served, really needs to be... More
