We got into Melbourne and couldn't wait to eat at Cumulus again (first time was 1.5 years ago). Really like seating at the counter watching the food you ordered being lovingly prepared. Service was excellent and friendly. This time, we had the burrata salad, chorizo-stuffed dates (exceptional) and pork loin/rillette. All good except the exceptional dates! 3 -4 dishes to... More

I was so impressed and that is hard to achieve! From the moment we opened the door to the bustling cafe, the service exceeded expectations. I must mention the lovely hostess who greeted us with a kind smile and apologised that we had to wait for 10 minutes and promised we would not be forgotten. 10 minutes it was and... More

Arrived at 9am on the Saturday to a full buzzing restaurant. Names down and waited only 10 minutes or so. This place really had their game on in the time we were sat - two or three times tables around us were relayed. Great to see. Staff very tuned and smiley. Coffee was the highlight as we're the madeleines. Food... More

We were in the city for an appointment which finished just before noon. I suggested we see if there was any chance we could find a table at Cumulus my husband was sceptical as we have tried before with no success. It's been some time since our last visit but we thought we would try. We arrived and it was... More

My son recommended this place as he had visited in mid 2016. He must have good taste as this place was amazing. It is really busy all the time. The staff have their work cut out keeping up but they do a superb job. The plates on the menu are for sharing so a couple from each section for a... More

Starting when we went through the door (we hadn't booked) we had a great welcome. Table staff asked if we had been before, then gave a detailed explanation. Our meal was very good and the calamari we started with exceptional. Try the Madeleine's with coffee. Highly recommended

Recommended by friends, we managed to get a table, walking in on spec sometime after 8pm (if I remember rightly you can’t book unless a large group). Everyone’s enthusiastic and hospitable; service is efficient. The restaurant is buzzy. The food is excellent, albeit with portions on the smaller side. We prefer that, although there was some amusement when the starter... More

I was looking for a nice restaurant for a good friend from overseas and booked at Cumulus Inc. Apparently, Cumulus serves three meals a day, and although we had booked for 12 noon, we had to wait. However, service improved after that and we had a fine meal. I started with an interesting green gazpacho with small prawns that was... More

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood 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.
