Lovely lunch

Popped into Cumulus for Sunday lunch, and it was delicious. There were four of us, so we ordered a mixture of dishes and shared them. They were all good, with highlights being the cured tuna and the roast lamb. It was busy when we arrived, but we only had to wait 10-15 minutes for a table and were... read more

I think Cumulus is starting to believe it's invincible. Went there for breakfast and must say after being there 3 times the standard has dropped away dramatically. The piece of resistance was after ordering Madelines as my wife and I always do, even though it took the regular 15 minutes they tasted of the night before, merely heated up. Didn't... More

This is one of the most lovely breakfast venue in Melbourne. Though crowded, the crowd was hip, pleasant and polite which made the morning rush an enjoyable one. We were sat at the bar, and had a lovely spread of crumplets, full breakfast and coffee (duh). Will definitely be back again, wait for me!

This was my second visit to Cumulus. The menu offers interesting choice, with the option of sharing several smaller plates. For the hungry, share the lamb shoulder. Simply delicious. Service is attentive and the waiting staff are happy to provide great suggestions. Another favourite is the whole Flounder.

Cumulus Inc is super cool and my default restaurant when I am in Melbourne - Breakfast, lunch and dinner (plus coffee of course). I prefer to sit at the counter by the kitchen and watch the chefs. All the food on the menu is fantastic but my favorites are the tuna with crushed peas, the whole lamb shank, the foie... More

Heard about cumulus inc through a couple of friends and had to see what the fuss was about! Arrived at the awkward time of 330 after walking around melbourne with my partner. Ended up sitting along the marble bench overlooking the kitchen and the chefs prepping for dinner service! We had a couple of drinks and cheese selection, all the... More

We had wanted to try cumulus on the ground floor but they were fully booked so we went up to the Cumulus wine bar which also serves food and we were not disappointed at all! Tried a few dishes and they were great! Highly recommend the ricotta dumplings, Flathead and beef - all great portion size for sharing and delicious!... More

If you're looking for someplace quiet, don't come here. But if you are looking for terrific food with a very different menu from which to choose, then this is your place. The two of us shared 2 appetizers and1 entrée and it was very sufficient -- and absolutely succulent. My husband needs to eat gluten free and it was also... More

We actually visited Cumulus upstairs. It's a very unique place with unique decor. You can tell by watching the staff that they are top on customer service. The food is small quantity but excellent quality, the drinks are very much speciality for them, from wines to cocktails. A recommended place to visit if you can manage to book a table... More
