We stopped for a late lunch at Muse Kitchen upon recommendation from a chef at Thomas Allen winery. The food was lovely and the setting quaint set amongst Keith Tullocks winery. The service was good and it was a great place to enjoy lunch.

Enjoyed the atmosphere and amazing food at Muse kitchen on Sunday. All the food was sensational but the favourite of the day was voted the pulled pork sandwich and coconut dessert came in very close second. It was a very hot day and we appreciated a table inside in the airconditioning. Even though we were early we were greeted and... More

My wife and a couple of friends had lunch here last week. We had the prawns, suckling pig and crab pasta. Food was beautiful and the setting was great. We highly recommend it. The muse restaurant is even better. Service is always outstanding.

We have been to Muse Kitchen 4 times, his says it all and I would go back for a 5th, definitely. It so nice having an outside table for lunch on a nice sunny day, with a nice outlook over the courtyard. If it is going to be a hot day, I would get an inside table. The food is... More

Received exceptionally customer service from Jess at Muse, and Ellie at Muse Kitchen. Arrived late without reservation. Was offered a late table at Muse or an alternative table at their sister restaurant Muse Kitchen immediately which we took. Jess could not have been more helpful. On arrival at Muse Kitchen the friendly greeting and professionalism made us feel immediately at... More

We were there for lunch. Service was very slow - and with little kids a long wait can be a problem. It didn't seem particularly busy. When main courses eventually arrived 3 of the group who had ordered burgers found them to be cold. The waitress was VERY apologetic and professional and took them back. When she returned again, one... More

Had an excellent lunch with my spouse. Entrees were out quickly and were delicious. We shared the Milly Hill lamb shoulder for main. Meat was beautifully cooked and salad and duck fat potatoes were a great accompanient. Wait staff were knowledgable and attentive without being intrusive. In all a wonderful dining experience
