We recently visited Muse Restaurant to celebrate a birthday, and thoroughly enjoyed the quality of the food, staff and venue. This was fine dining at its best. The night went by without a hitch. We selected the three course menu and would highly recommend the slow cooked 70 hour Wagu and the Muse Coconut, these were very special courses. The... More

This was my second visit to the muse restaurant. Food was a fantastic experience and full of flavour and sophistication and fun too. Wines were great and the atmosphere is super relaxing. One negative... The toilets!!!!! They're awful.

If you wanted to try a degustation menu for the first time then this place is it. Perfect food, amazing service - the sommelier worked out that in a duskily lit restaurant putting the wine bottle into the table light allowed us to read the label - and a cozy but spacious atmosphere. The Muse coconut dessert is as good... More

This is a most beautiful restaurant. From the time you arrive as the door is being opened for you, to being escorted to the door as you leave, this is a very special experience. The food is lovely - creatively and thoughtfully prepared with something for everyone's taste. As could be expected, the wine list is excellent. The service is... More

The food is exceptional and the wine is very good but the service makes this restaurant stand out from the crowd. You feel you are in a Michelin star restaurant in the middle of the lovely, interesting Hunter Valley wine area.
