We chose Cumulus to celebrate a 21st birthday and our 27th wedding anniversary. We were not dissapointed, great ambience, delicious food and excellent service from all staff, in particular from Chelsea who was professional and friendly. My favorite dish was the dessert - strawberries with...vanilla semifreddo - I will be back for more !!More

All our food was excellent but we particularly liked the mussels with the nduja sauce and the roasted lamb with a pepper sauce

Have been coming here for years, but the current vibe is a little different. You can sense happy relief from both staff and diners after long covid closures. The food was amazing, the staff were genuinely glad to see you - and the lamb was...a knockout.More

Was there on the 7th of November and we had a memorable night dinning with you. We were booked for the last sitting and we do feel embarrassed too as we were the last table to leave due to waiting on everyone to arrive. Thank...you for accommodating us even we exceeded your closing time. Our waiter, Allyson was so helpful, knowledgeable with the menu and recommendations on the menu. Most memorable dish was the ceviche, juicy chicken as we were somewhat sceptical to order as we worried it will be dry but it wasn't, my favourite mussels dish with burst umami flavours it our non seafood lover friend, she love it too!More

Cool place serving nice food, all 6 of us had the chefs menu. Loads of food actually, best dishes was probably the shoulder of lamb & the flathead. Good selection of wines and friendly staff. Overall nice spot to go out for dinner with friends,...would recommend a visit!More

We have dined here before and decided to return we weren’t disappointed it was very very good service and excellent food and interesting food menu with lots of vegetarian options would highly recommend it a good meal and not at a crazy price

I want to give a big shout out to Cumulus. As a female business traveller, there are not many places I feel comfortable eating solo on a busy Friday night. Cumulus has bar seating where it’s not so odd being a single dinner, and staff...are 100 per cent welcoming. Parts of the menu can be offered as a half serve meaning the single diner can still get a good sample of the menu. I never get past the tuna tartare, pate and salad combos, with every dish being fresh, bright and delicious. Thank you Cumulus team - after being home bound for the past year it’s good to be back.More

It's only a restaurant and I doubt it has wifi.I think there are far better breakie places in Melbourne, this one is far too over rated.
