Whatever you want, whenever you want it. If visiting Melbourne you just cannot miss cumulus. Last trip was for 2 nights. We did breakfast both days and one dinner. So amazing! Great wine list. The poached chicken breast was so tender. And don't forget the Dory. Great vege options. Unbeatable value for money 5 of us with drinks for dinner... More

This restaurant is a popular venue for those affecting a hipster vibe. Food is pretty good - but expensive. Dinner for two with wine (but no coffee)came to $250. Service is smart, and replete with postmodern irony. Main courses arrived before starters were finished. Server helpfully suggested we have them together. What this restaurant isn't really good for is any... More

We visited this good reputation restaurant last week. (15 Aug 2014) But this restaurant is not suitable for my taste. It is too salty, for example the wakyu menu is too salty to eat it. The lib menu is too small to eat only 1 person. We did not get any information from the resaurant about the amount or flavor.... More

Can't beat the Cumulus breakfast for $16 - freshly squeezed orange juice, coffee, boiled egg, toast with preserves and yoghurt. Perfect fuel before hitting the shops for retail therapy.

Cumulus Inc has been around for a while. My partner and I were late for breakfast so we were given the lunch menu to choose from, and we weren't disappointed! We ordered the pickled octopus - yummy! Pate foie gras with toasted brioche - yummier!! And the pig's head croquettes with tartare sauce- the yummiest - although some more would... More

Like so many others who have reviewed this wonderful, bustling gem, we too had to wait for around 20 minutes for a seat. No problem as a complimentary coffee was provided while we waited, and there were the Sunday papers to read. We were seated at the breakfast bar where we could watch the food being prepared by three very... More

I wrote a diners review for Cumulus inc years ago and it's so good I'm here to write another.. The food here is faultless, every time. I love that you can sit here for a relaxed, casual long lunch with friends and share a bunch of beautiful dishes and taste the most incredible oysters while sipping superb champagne.. Every visit...
