This was our second visit to Cumulus, recommended previously by friends, and we were not disappointed. Yesterday was a wonderful day - the celebration of our son's wedding - and Cumulus did us proud. Lunch in Cumulus Up was incredible - the quality of food, pace of service ... and the team especially - were all amazing and they made... More

We had breakfast at cumulus a year ago and remembered the fantastic dishes and so decided to return for a rehash of those wonderful memories. Unfortunately this time round, we found the breakfast mediocre. I tried the shaksouka which turned out to be decent but a bit tart. After a few bites, the sour aftertaste gets to you and it... More

we popped in without a reservations and put our name down for a table, when finally the time arrived, 1.5 hour later, we scored 2 sits at the bar. As i'm pregnant, it was a bit uncomfortable for me, but it was our only option, so we stayed anyway. we ordered drinks and got the menu explained by a waiter... More

We dined at Cumulus Up….the pork belly (according to my friend) was a religious experience! The food, the drink and the service were all 11/10. This place is so deservedly popular but doesn't accept bookings - be prepared to wait but be assured it will be well worth it!

Have been wanting to visit this place for ages and could never seem to score a table. On the off chance we managed to get one on a monday night. The food was fantastic. All the dishes were great especially the lamb shoulder. It is a very big serving and is plenty for 4 to 6 people. The tuna and... More

Enjoyed breakfast here recently. Atmosphere was busy, bright/cheery and very efficient. Service was fair . Returned for dinner on a different day and found it quite noisey. Starters and mains were expensive.Wine was limited in terms of choice and was also expensive. Service pedestrian and globally the evening was disappointing and not value for money

We didn't have to walk too far; we were hungry and Cumulus Inc looked inviting. Great space with every available square inch filled with eaters; obliging staff - friendly and efficient; a table in pretty close proximity to others on both sides of us; quick, quality coffee a reasonable wine and beer selection but a hard to choose from menu...

Really enjoyed the food, wine and service just a fantastic dinning experience. If you like tapas and a noisey vibrant restaurant then this is the place.

As per my last review, I said we would be back next time we were in Melbourne and it was just as good second time around. There were 4 of us on Friday morning straight from the airport at 10am, no waiting shown straight to a table, it was pretty busy and I think we would have had to have... More
