“Simply delicious!!!”
Reviewed May 12, 2013

Cumulus Inc is everything I love about dining out in Melbourne... sensational food, knowledgeable and friendly staff, relaxed yet sophisticated atmosphere and an amazing wine list! Will definitely be back!! Oh, and don't miss out on their spiced almonds... I've been craving them ever since...

“Delicious if you order right”
Reviewed May 9, 2013

I went for a weekday lunch by myself, being down from Sydney and managed to snake a bar stool at the marble bar in front of the kitchen. That was probably the best part, watching everything being prepared. I had an amazing curried pumpkin soup with deep fried chicken bit in it. Sounds strange but it was delicious. They offer half serves of some of the share dishes, which I thought was nice. The roast potatoes are spectacular. Everything else i orderd, the salami, the salads were ok but pretty overpriced. I saw some other dishes being prepared that would have obviously been much better.

The staff are very trendy but they were friendly enough. In the end it cost me over $50 and I didn't even have a drink. However, I don't regret going and would probably go again, waiting to watch some dishes prepared before ordering..

“stay away”
Reviewed May 5, 2013

Looks nice from outside and very nice setting but the menu is very limited and if you don't like ox tail or bull tounge then the rude waitress is not happy as she will make you wait for everything and basicly ignore you, very rude also, way over priced for its limited menu, stay away if you don't want to ruin your holidays.

“Nice atmosphere and decent food”
Reviewed May 3, 2013 via mobile

Went to Cumulus with a few food friends. A good place to meet in a relaxed environment still with high quality on the food. A bit pricy for the food but the atmosphere and service makes up for it.

“Definitely on cloud 9”
Reviewed May 3, 2013

This is not cheap by Melbourne standards, but we loved the food, ambience and service.
If you like traditional meat and 3 veg or pasta, this is not for you. If you like funky food and are happy to pay try, this out.
