Enjoying a romantic dinner here with my fiancée we found the service spot on. Not at all intrusive, but still very friendly. We were celebrating our engagement and the staff made sure we felt special. We chose the banquet and this was great value for money. The lamb dish was a standout. Muse Kitchen also have a fantastic wine list.... More

We come here a few weeks ago, the food, service & atmosphere was stunning. We had the pork special with apple, chickpea & chorizo sauce & spinach purée and the gnocchi was all beautiful!! Good work to the guys in the kitchen can't wait to come back!!

If there is one dish here you must try, it is the Pork Hock Croque Monsieur. This is the ultimate toasted sandwich. They also do fantastic fried whitebait, crisp and tender. Quick and friendly service, and good wines on offer by the glass. Tulloch's and Muse Kitchen's vibe, to me, epitomises what is the Hunter Valley. Casual, relaxed, with fine... More

We had a delicious lunch here and it was so filling that we had to cancel our dinner reservation for that night! Food was local, fresh and first class and service very good. It was too cold to eat outside, but would imagine in warmer months it would be a lovely spot. The restaurant itself had a French Provencal feel... More

The food was incredible. Finest quality and service .. The banquet dinner menu is phenomenal, just don't eat anything for at least 12 hours beforehand.... Epic!

My wife and I visit there every 3 months or so and have an excellent meal each time. The serving staff are great, they know what is in every dish and their wine knowledge is faultless. The reason we keep coming back is because we know the quality in all aspects is consistent. Well done again!

A morning drive from the Hawkesbury and you are at Muse Kitchen in perfect time for an absolute most enjoyable afternoon. The fact that the table staff were not only extremely friendly, but they also had a great knowledge of the wines and not just their own. Three courses all to the table on time all of exceptional quality. The... More

We have stopped at Muse as a part of our wine tour. The spot is really nice, plenty of green area and an option to sit outside. The food was really good quality ( beef check, duck leg, whitebait, olives) but: quite pricey and we have been waiting for over an hour for the mains to be served! We were... More
