One of my favourites in Melbourne. All the meals were fantastic especially the salads and crudités. The dumplings were like eating clouds! An absolute delight and if you can't get a table try cumulus up upstairs.

Waiting for a show to start at 45 Downstairs? Cumulus Inc is the perfect pre- show bar/restaurant. Thursday night - earlyish. So not so hard to get a seat. We sat at the end of the bar - comfy enough. Just wanted something to eat...More

This review is for the associated upstairs restaurant, Cumulus Up. We had a wonderful tapas-style meal (special of steak tartare and the hassleback potatoes were divine!) with carefully selected Shiraz from an extensively stocked cellar. The service was flawless, attentive and professional at all times....More

A great atmosphere with food and service to match! Enjoyed a nice evening with business colleague at the 2nd floor restaurant (2 floors with different vibes). The 2nd floor is more wine oriented versus beer on the first. Menu was simple with nice variety of...More

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
