CUMULUS INC. Eating House and Bar opened in 2008 in Melbourne’s famous art and fashion precinct, Flinders Lane. Celebrating the historic turn of the century rag trade building in which it is located, the space is a busy social hub offering Andrew McConnell’s acclaimed food.
The space, designed by Pascale Gomes-McNabb, is light and classic. CUMULUS INC. is open throughout the day, seven days a week, whether it be for a coffee, snack, drink or a meal. Breakfast until 11.30am is done simply; organic muesli or perhaps the Full English, with farmhouse slab bacon and smoked tomato. Lunch and dinner include dishes designed to share, charcuterie, oysters shucked to order, salads or the whole roast lamb shoulder.
Amazing food, and the staff made everyone feel special during these disruptive times. Kudos to the whole team.
The food was amazing. Great Service so glad I got a chance to go there before lockdown. When they open again I will be back
A Melbourne institution - Andrew Mc has still got it!
The service and food was great. So glad we chose here for our last meal before isolation.
We had a delicious dinner, lovely atmosphere and not too noisy which is a nice change!
Attentive but not intrusive service and amazing cuisine and cocktails as expected!
Excellent restaurant, first class service and dining experience; thank you team Cumulus; glad to have you back!!
First outing since initial Covid lockdown & was just lovely to have a relaxed lunch in a nice atmosphere
So wonderful to be back !!! Beautiful food great service and wonderful singing for my birthday xxx
Went on a Thursday evening, about 14 diners upstairs. Beautiful setting, could only have the set menu due to the limited dining options at the minute, great food and accompanying wine. Great Negroni to start.
Everything was fantastic - food, drinks (especially in regards to wine!) and service was wonderful. The set menu is great, highly recommend just going for that. Every care was taken to ensure social distancing was adhered to whilst still creating a warm feel within the restaurant. So great!
The food was delicious and the service was great, highly recommend!
Have always enjoyed wine and dinning at Cumulus. There is something about sitting at the counter where you can chat with the chefs while you dine.
Great variety of wine and the food is amazing just the same.
Exceptional service and attention to detail. Staff displayed amazing knowledge of food and wines. Recommend the set menu : )
Excellent food and service. A very enjoyable food experience.
EST service I’ve had in a long time. Can’t wait to book again. Thanks again to the whole team xo
It was great. Operating with CV19 restrictions but with warmth, ambience and outstanding service.
My favourite place to dine solo when in Melbourne. I go because the food is always very, very good, the wine list is great and the service is attentive and friendly. I need no more. That said every time I go, there is always a warm exchange of words with one of the staff. This time it was who does the best chardy in Australia.
Cumulus is like an old friend. We all need them.
Amazing. Thank you for everything. The service, staff and food were all brilliant.
Food and service were outstanding would recommend to anyone
Lovely reintroduction to dining out. I believe Cameron looked after us for most of the night and he was very knowledgeable and welcoming. Will be back to try the a la carte menu once it's available.
Anniversary dinner very special dining experience great wines from the Yarra Valley and whiskey too. Menu was chosen for you with only two options for the main Chicken and fish but delicious. With the Covid restrictions Tables are not on top of each other and added to a great atmosphere intimate Dining experience with amazing service. Very relaxed five stars fine dining Highly recommend.
As always Cumulus is awesome - the food, the service and the familiar faces were wonderful to see !
Fantastic dining experience, for modern grungy Flinders Ln date.
Wonderful restaurant, great service, delicious food. Treat yourself, go on!
Great time especially during the COVID 19 as usual food and service are excellent and definitely will be back soon
Service was excellent, a lot of effort put into making the dining experience the best it can possibly be for each person on the night. Amazing value as well, we left very full! Looking forward to returning in future
The artichoke was so good I almost cried. The lamb is an institution and the bubbles was great!
Great food - but no mention that there was set menu prior to arriving at the venue - we wouldn’t have gone if we knew that our favourites were not an option
Very disappointing - and poor communication on behalf of the Restaraunt
Great service, food is amazing. Definitely one of my long time favourite restaurants in Melbourne. I haven’t visited it for a year or so and the food was still as great as a first remembered. Would definitely recommend for a mid range priced dinner. $65 for set menu with 5 courses I think. A main on its own can be about $35 anyway so the set menu is cost efficient. Even included dessert!! Thanks Cumulus team
Beautiful & plentiful food. Great service. Very good value for money
Absolutely caring waitress, where able to cater and help us with our choices through out the night
It was one of the first restaurant meals after Covid lock down. Thoroughly enjoyed the set menu. It was v yummy , well balanced and good value. Will return again soon!
The set menu was amazing, and the price was great value for money,
Chose to eat here for my partner’s birthday. The service was attentive, friendly and food was 5 star. What was great was they remembered the note I left during the reservation which was his birthday and brought the desert with a candle in it. It really made our day and that was a really lovely touch. Definitely recommended, the whole experience was beautiful xx G& R
Fantastic experience! Food was delicious and staff were very friendly and knowledgeable. Because of COVID restrictions we had a short wait during which the owner very kindly provided us with a taste of a delicious wine. A very nice touch that was much appreciated. The food is fairly pricey but great quality.
So lovely to experience Cumulus Inc after CV19 restrictions have eased a little. The quality of food and staff was as exceptional as it has always been previously, just with the added positive vibe and appreciation that comes with being able to venture out after such a long time.
I would like to thanks all the team for this agreeable time in the restaurant. The food and the atmosphere were really amazing. I can't wait to go back to this venue for a lovely diner.
delicious as always and fabulous staff, everyone was so happy on the first day back after shutdown, loved it.
