Cumulus was probably our most unique dining experience in MEL. We really enjoyed that the place was open, light and airy, whereas so many are dark and brooding. It made it the perfect lunch spot for two when we strolled over from the hotel. The...More

Very interesting place! We ate at the counter, watching at the young chef and young assistants cooking (very interesting). We took a sashimi dish (I can't remember kind of fish)! As main dish we tasted fregola with seafood! Everything served with fresh homemade delicious bread!...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
