An ok experience, but no more. Not very friendly staff sadly, and the food is definitely outperformed by similar hip breakie places in CBD. The space where you eat is very nice though, and it is not as tight between the tables as similar places can be.

Try to move to Cumulus up (as good as Inc. downstairs is). And if you like it - like we do - try get a seat at the chefs tablebar. Dedication and quality of kitchen staff ensures a delightful evening with plenty of pleasant taste surprises. Cumulus in itself is worth a visit to Melbourne.

We were staying at the Windsor hotel just round the corner and thought we would give this place a try and we were not disappointed. Despite being very busy the restaurant accommodation us near the bar where we watched the food being prepared by the young and dynamic staff. The food was innovative, full of flavor and we'll presented. Service... More

Read this on a list of recommended Melbourne breakfast spots. Great interior, very quick service, very reasonable prices in comparison to Perth and notably in a venue that is known for fine dining.

Cumulus is by far one of the best restaurants in Melbourne. In enchanting Flinders lane, it is a stand out compared to the multitude of options. The service is always fantastic, without fail, and the food is consistently high quality, beautiful flavours and gorgeous presentation. Dont miss the slow roast lamb......amazing.

Had a wonderful tasting meal with my son.Excellent food and service that was helpful. It was made interesting as we were seated at the bar where we could see the preparations and plating. The food we chose was very good I especially like the venison tartare! An interesting place to try.

A cool, loft like ambience in Melbourne CBD mixed with the art facades on the walls make this a great business dinner venue. We were catered with a degustation style dinner which was amazing. The service was attentive and flawless.

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.
