the perfect venue for an alfresco lunch

Great, non-intrusive service, friendly and pleasant staff made the whole experience relaxed and perfect. My mother and I sat outside in the sun under an umbrella-shaded table outside overlooking the lawn and the blue skies, it was such a perfect place for a weekend lunch :) We had the set menu... read more

We dined for lunch and enjoyed the duck pate to start and shared the slow cooked lamb shoulder dish, made for two but was such a huge serving it could have fed three people comfortably (and my hubby can eat!) The lamb was incredibly tender and delicious and came with a cous cous salad and baked potatoes. Yum! The setting... More

Everything about Muse Kitchen place is gorgeous - the atmosphere, decor, food and of course the staff. My friend and I popped in on a whim after driving by, and we were not disappointed. To our delight they managed to seat us for lunch without a booking. We opted for the 4 course banquet, each course cooked to perfection and... More

Based at the beautiful Keith Tulloch's vineyard, it's a perfect cosy restaurant for an excellent lunch. The food was spot on and it was the perfect warm up to dining at big brother (Muse Restaurant) later in the evening. If you have the time, definitely worth a visit. A suggestion is to book in advance as it's a small restaurant... More

Enjoyed a delicious, leisurely lunch in the beautiful and calm setting at Muse Kitchen earlier today. Our waitress, Candace, was very attentive in an unobtrusive way and helped us understand the different food and wine options with her excellent knowledge. We all had the barramundi, which was delicious, and the wine Candace recommended was a perfect accompaniment. The coconut pudding... More

We had a lovely lunch a Muse kitchen recently. A very nice fresh airey dining area with friendly and efficient staff. Interesting menu which didn't disappoint. There are better fine dining restaurants but this restaurant does a very good job and a very enjoyable experience. Will return.

Our lunch at Muse Kitchen was the best we had in the Hunter. We were there at the time of a heatwave so we really appreciated the air conditioning indoors. Delicious food and super friendly service. Great selection of wines by the glass and it's in a great spot just opposite the Keith Tulloch winery.

We had a delightful experience here for lunch. The menu was so appealing and food so good we ended up having a three course lunch. Everything was so crisp, fresh and clean flavours presented simply and beautifully. The gnocchi with spanner crab melted in the mouth, the suckling pork was crisp, juicy and perfectly paired with apple and bean salad.... More
