The restaurant can be very busy in the morning and waiting outside in the cold can put some people off but the food is definitely worth the wait.

Having frequently enjoyed breakfast, ventured upstairs for dinner and was not disappointed. Great service and cool menu, really enjoyed the casual vibe and great wine whilst sharing plates with a friend. Many choices in Flinders Lane - Cumulus amongst the list not to be missed, either for breakfast or dinner upstairs (now my favourite option).

Met a friend and subsequently two others turned up. Wait staff was lovely, and not painful about adding another chair (and then another). Food was delicious - beans on toast, lamb ribs, coq au vin, ricotta dumplings Fun vibe, I will be back very soon.

Great food, interesting place, fun time had after a show. We went with a large group, a tad slow getting our food, but mostly a memorable experience.

Attempting to eat out with food intolerances, can be very difficult. Perusing menus; knowing that all you can eat comfortably at a particular restaurant will leave you feeling hungry; hoping you can trust the wait staff and chef that what you have ordered will be 'all' you will be served on your plate. None of these issues were a difficulty... More

Just like a tasting plate for breakfast - one perfectly soft boiled egg in a cup, toast slices of various bread with butter, pot of yoghurt with rhubarb and a selection of jams, YUM. Be early for breakfast as the place fills quickly.

I have tried coming to Cumulus but there is always a line. This time, I was a solo diner and I got a seat at the shared table. And since I was dining alone, they offered to have To Start and Charcuterie in half order which was really great so I was able to sample more dishes. The servings were... More

Finally had the chance to go here last night. It definately lived up to its reputation, great food and atmosphere. Had some great food combinations, some of which I never thought possible, like the duck waffel. You have to try it to believe it. Very busy, we had to relax for about 50 min upstairs with a drink and nibbles... More
