I have been here 3 times over the last few years when visiting Melbourne. This restaurant has a lovely modern presence about it. I love the option of dining at the bar where all the action takes place; this style of dining is not prominent...More

Not the most comfortable of restaurants - feels like you’re being invited to eat and run, rather than settle in. We opted for the chef menu and had some exquisite food, and some just okay food. The tuna was an absolute standout. The lamb however,...More

After a great dinner at Chin Chin we went for drinks at Cumulus. They were happy to accommodate us and it was a very nice atmosphere for a couple glasses of wine after dinner. Great service.

Low-key decor and ambience but big business lunch crowd during the week. I'd been walking past Cumulus on almost every visit to Melbourne in the last 4-ish years, and finally got a chance to dine on my last visit late 2016. Had a mid-week lunch...More

We are in the bar downstairs which was a little noisy but otherwise everything was amazing. The slow roasted lamb shoulder was one of the best things we have eaten. So good, in fact, that we bought the book.

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
