    Probably one of the best tuna tartares I've had in my life. The balance of flavors, a little acid, a little creamy and just light and fresh. The best part is they can do half portions of appetizers!

    Love the ambience & deco. Service is brisk and despite the buzz, they still give personal attention making sure u r comfortable. Top pick: shakshouk - baked eggs with shanklish & red peppers.

    Little variety on the menu but the dishes produced are of high quality. The small bites and entrée are the highlight of the menu. The fried cauliflower and tuna salad are a must!

    A great breakfast place. Shaksouka was fabulous and massive. Coffee was great too. Come early if you don't want to queue. We were there at 805 and got straight in (Saturday). queues when we left

    Excellent service and great atmosphere! For breakfast, try the gelatinous 65/65 egg (boiled for 65 mins in 65°C water), served with lyonaisse sausage, smoked hock and baked beans!

    This bar is amazing. Feels like you've transported back in time to Old New York. It's above Cumulus up an unmarked very 70s looking stairwell. Just head up. The bar tapas are ones to write home about.

    Try the tuna tartare, it's absolutely amazing! And I'm not a seafood lover! I also liked the broccoli salad + the Sardinian salami. You'll be more likely to find sophisticated dishes vs simple ones.

    Return trip; though dismayed to see favourites knocked off the menu (cauliflower), the food is still super. Waitress Romy is sensational and gauged our appetites perfectly - thank you! Madeleines FTW!

    Crumpets & rooftop honey for breakfast! Delicious if you don't mind getting sticky...great coffee too. Perfect if you're not in a rush. People watching also excellent. Lovely staff too.

    Really interesting menu...and they offered half portions so was able to try various things without blowing the budget. Great location in and among the cbd with a vibrant but relaxed feel to it.

    Rhubarb root beer and slow-cooked octopus are must-haves. Staff is amazing. Great solo place to visit. Excellent views of kitchen, great books to flip through, and half plates.

    The service is excellent, most of the dishes are designed with sharing in mind, everything we had was exquisite, with free bread, we found 4 dishes more than enough for 3 people

    really nice environment, friendly staff, art is all around. Good soy latte! I was also told the food is very good and it's better to go at 2pm,at 12 it's packed.

    An absolute hive of activity. Had the brekky bake. Good food and service. I hate when you leave something, and they don't ask why. "rock hard eggs" mean just that. sorry guys, deducting a point.

    Great service and delicious dining! Everything was so well done, shared serving platters were well presented and timed. However, delays are expected during busy hours.

    The pan roasted Flounder and pumpkin salad are out of this world. So is the Foie Gras parfait with Toasted Brioche.

    Great ambiance, great food, great service. Hidden down an uninviting corridor and up some dreary stairs. Everything Melbourne restaurants are famous for.

    Fantastic service and great food. We went to Cumulus for breakfast food was really great. Choices were a bit limited comparing to other places but the food was infallible.

    If you are a duck lover like me then the Roast Aylesbury Duck Breast with Toasted Grains, Lentils & Plum is a must try. Eating at the bar is a fun experience.

    There's a reason people are eating dinner here at 5.30 pm. The food and service are great. Loved the tuna tartare and the pastrami/rye/pickles.

    To do the menu justice, we recommend rolling four deep so you can try everything. A bowl of sweet yabbies comes out utensil free. Here folks, is why we have opposable thumbs. Read more

    My favorites were the Peppers and the Red Emperor - oh, and don't miss the made to order Madelines for dessert! (Also, fun bartenders that make mean cocktails.)

    They need to extend their breakfast/brunch menu to later in the day. Get here early in the day (and wait in line) if you want some of that chorizo!!!!

    About 4-5 dishes is plenty to share between four when you order the slow roasted lamb shoulder. Food is divine. Service is good also.

    Amazing food. We had the foie gras, tuna tar tar, crab salad and the chorizo with dates. Worth the money.

    Another vote for the amazing duck waffle! 👍 Small and packed. Standing room can be a bit awkward as you'll be sharing someone else's table.

    If you are staying at Sofitel it's a stone throw . Literally. Ask the outdoor valet folks it's so near that they can even walk you there !

    Gotta get the Tuna Tartare, Soft shell crab! Great atmosphere, and nice portion of dishes to share around! This place is better than Cutler and Co in my opinion!

    Andrews simple combination of anchovies and toast is just my fab thing. Could just come and spoil myself with that. Make sure you give it a go.

    Must try the octopus with aioli and the corn clam chowder. Skip the soft-shell crab, that's a swing and a miss :p

    Lamb Shank here is not to be missed, it's best for 3. However if you are a meatlovers, it would work for 1.

    Get the oyster blade steak (melts in your mouth tenderness) with roasted new potatoes (crispy outside and fluffy inside) and you can thank me later.

    Great place for the business traveller. Eating alone at the bar looking into the kitchen is interesting, plus they have a good selection of reading material

    Try the slow cooked octopus with aioli, its got an unexpected killer chilli kick. Travellin solo? Ask to be seated at the marble bar.
