Cumulus Inc. is open for lunch, dinner and all-day dining from 12pm Monday to Saturday.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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

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.
