“Terrific tapas”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012

Tapas is my favourite way to eat - and I was not disappointed, in face this place exceeded my expectations. If I was a local I'd be there once a week. We ordered 4 dishes to share and they were all beautiful. The open kitchen is run like a machine, the chef churns out dishes at a rate of knots. No wonder it's one of Melbourne's most popular restaurants.

“Cool doesn't mean good”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012

Maybe I don't count because I'm 50, but I think my money is as good as the 28 y-o hunk who got fabulous service while I was ignored.

“Ok but not value for money”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2012

Food was ok but too expensive for the quality. Was looking for something more hip. Extra poached egg was AUD 4.50 and nothing really special.

“Awesome breakfast!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2012

We'd heard a lot about this place, and as we were too busy to eat dinner there, we popped in for breakfast one morning. Beautiful food. Great service. Will definitely check it out again next time we're in Melbourne.

“Awesome breakfast!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2012

Loved the breakfast at Cumulus Inc.! I had the Kurabouta leg ham & gruyere toasted sandwich, best toasty ever! The homemade bread was so crunchy and yum! We also had the Cumulus breakfast, very French, the homemade jams were yum too! Coffee was great and saw the Madeleines on our way out, should have ordered those too!
