My wife and I had promised ourselves a trip here as it had come recommended and the reviews looks ok. So this week on a bright sunny Melbourne Friday public holiday morning we made the train ride to experience what we hoped would be a memorable brekky - It sure was! Atmosphere The place is nice, buried on Flinders Lane... More

I stayed 6 days in Melbourne and ate at different places every night, and this restaurant was the best one. The environment is very relaxed but the restaurant is definitely a fine dining facility. The dish that should not be missed is lamb shoulder. The price is around 60 AUD per person.

Midweek quick dinner before the theatre. Great food and wine. Excellent staff and price is standard for this area. The only issue was squashed in. To many tables.

This restaurant never fails to please your tastebuds. Even the more unusual ingredients taste delicious and are nicely balanced in the dishes. The service is always friendly and helpful.

We went there for dinner. We had lamb shoulder, roasted barramundi. It was the best lamb shoulder we have eaten.

Rubbish! You know how everyone says something is good because everyone else says its good (Yes - think Emperors New Clothes). That is this place! I was promised I wouldn't get a bad meal in Melbourne, but Cumulus pulled it off. Cold bacon bap, soy/regular milk in coffee mixed up, overpriced, boring breakfast menu with very few options on it...

It was after a beautiful concert by talented Australian pianist, Tristan Lee and upcoming tenor, Douglas Kelly at fortyfivedownstairs that we decided to extend the evening's entertainment with dinner next door at Cumulus Inc. With no booking we were warmly invited to join the communal table where we perched ourselves on the high stools and surveyed the bustling room and... More

Think I have a new #1 in Melbourne. Everything was outstanding, food, service and atmosphere. Had the most amazing slow roasted lamb!!!! It was 1.2 kgs so extremely generous. No exaggeration it was the best lamb I have ever eaten. Foiegras, bussell sprouts and cauliflower were all top notch. After i went to Cumulus I was surprised to read it... More

Great breakfast and coffee for the morning but also fresh lunch and dinner menu with kitchen open to 10ish. My have to wait for table at peak times unless as a couple you eat at the many bar-stool options or join the communal table. Good brekky coffee juice and eggs option for value. Shakshuka eggs great. Good location Flinders lane... More

Staying in Central Business District

Neighborhood Profile
Central Business District
Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques, throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You never quite know what you’ll find around the next corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air of Berlin in the street art, a touch of Paris in the umbrella-shaded cafes and, reminiscent of Rome, eateries tucked away in the most unlikely of places. Perhaps you might want a break and cross the Yarra River to Southbank - walk along the promenade, bask in the sun at a waterside bar and decide whether to go to the nearby casino or book a ticket at the Melbourne theatre company.
