The first day of my arrival in Melbourne I went to Cumulus in solo, it was a Saturday around 11 am. I was not surprised to wait because I was advised of the "no reservation" policy in apparently most of the Melbourne restaurants. To be alone was an advantage as the staff quickly found a spot for me at the... More

Like the name suggests - this place is a piece of heaven. The food and way in which it is cooked and presented is awesome. great service from friendly staff.The restaurant has a great buzz about it. not hard to see why it is so popular. give it a go, you won't be disappointed.

I love the Cumulus breakfast. There is something for everyone. I especially love the toast and homemade preserves. It is not always easy to get a seat especially in groups of more than 4. The staff are efficient and the service quick. I always have to remember to ask for my coffee hot though otherwise it can be tepid.

Got invited by a supplier to Cumulus for lunch and LOVED it, We were a group of 20, had a set menu chosen by the chef and had the best lamb shoulder so far, Some of our guests had special dietary requirements and they were all taken care of to their likings, Definitely recommend, will go back for a dinner...

Gourmet selection of appetisers and main courses to choose from. Good service and food came on time. Can get rather loud later on as night goes on. Was taken by my Aussie friends who recommended it and was very impressed by the duck waffles.

Why do we wait sometimes upto 5 minutes to be seated at Cumulus ? Because the food is sublime , beautifully prepared and presented . Whilst waiting to to be seated we are offered coffee , tea or perhaps help yourself to water. Once seated in no time at all our orders are take by very competent wait staff shortly... More

We popped into Cumulus for a pre-dinner drink and ended up trying a couple of appetisers as well. This place is open all day and goes from a breakfast spot for office workers to a trendy cafe for lunch and dinner with switched on staff and interesting cocktails. We tried the Pig's Head croquettes and Foi Gras mousse which were... More
