There are two parts - the wine bar upstairs (cumulus up) and the main restaurant downstairs (cumulus inc). We went to the latter. However the wine bar looked like it had a really good food selection as well. Both parts have an excellent wine selection. Main problems is that it took an hour to get a table and then their...

We booked at Cumulus Up - the wine bar and had a lovely night. The ambiance was wonderful. Not too noisy (even thought the restaurant was full) and it didn't feel too crowded. As expected, the food was delicious! I had the whole fish (very good, however, there were lots of bones).

Visiting Melbourne and we had never heard of this restaurant. The trek up the hill from the tram was a bit of a hike for us seniors, so the younger "in the know" family members rushed ahead to grab a table. The five of us each ordered something different from the "wake up and try this" menu. The food was... More

Have been wanting to visit this place for a long time... Was good, but not great -mainly because of staff needing to smile! Not a smile when came to table, took order, delivered order, or when cleared order. Coffee great though so came back... Not much changed the next day.Guy behind bar smiled but others still incredibly serious. Clearly a... More

Famous Melbourne brekkie spot - The Shanklish did not disappoint - served piping hot and really tasty. Bustling with a good vibe. Service efficient.

Recently visited here after a recommendation from a friend. We didn't have to wait for a breakfast table but that may have been because it was midweek. The homemade crumpets, with whipped ricotta and rooftop honey was fantastic. I wanted to order seconds. My partner had the bacon burger with relish which he loved. The service was friendly and quick... More

There is nowhere in Melbourme who bakes to order Madeleine's indeed no one to equal Cumulus for this modest sweet treat - baked to order two Madeleines served with lemon curd accompanied by a favourite coffee - for me a long black no sugar - the house grind is mellow sweet and nutty. Indulge yourself anytime of the day it... More

We walked to this restaurant from Southbank to have breakfast here because our friend we were with had read such good reviews. We were hoping it was good cos we were staving by the time we arrived!! When we first looked at the menu we thought it was a bit minimal... But when the food arrived we were in heaven!!... More

We had heard about Cumulus from a friend in the states and decided to give it a try. They don't take reservations for parties less than seven. For a deuce, you are sitting at the bar, which was fine with us. The waiter Mathew was there immediately with water and menus. We decided to go with a bottle of wine,... More
