Long Overdue Catch up with Friends

Wow!!! I highly recommend their fried brussel sprout entree!!! I had the crispy skin confit duck leg which was delicious, everyone else had the glazed confit pork belly which was devine too. For dessert the coconut cloud was to die for!!! Great service.

Excellent place to take a break for lunch if you are travelling between wineries. The service is outstanding and the meals are absolutely delicious. We could not fault anything. This was the perfect little spot to sit back and enjoy some time out from wine tasting.

Excellent food and wine, the service was great without being overpowering but remaining attentive to our needs. No rush between courses, time to enjoy the space

Went here for dinner on Saturday. Everything tasted delicious. We had the trout and gnocchi entrees, chicken (so moist!) and pork belly mains, coconut cloud and apple desserts. The service, atmosphere, food was perfect. My husband has eaten at every type of restaurant (for his job) and is not a foodie at all. In 10 years I've never seen him... More

As with most families, you rarely get siblings that are the same. Having been to Muse restaurant (M.R.) about 5 weeks ago, we were always going to try Muse Kitchen, knowing it was a different offering. The menu is -on first reading - more limited and less complex than M.R., but when it arrives on the plate it is very... More

We asked for a table in the sunshine and the staff gladly obliged. It's all about wine in the Hunter, and I had a glass of spectacular Stormy Ridge Verdelho and my partner had the Shiraz. For lunch I selected the Barramundi and my partner had the Pork belly, basically everything was fantastic, including the service. We turned up for... More

Set in a great location at Keith Tulloch wines but closed Monday and Tuesday for lunch. Food variety is very good with a choice of Hunter Valley wines.We make a point of having lunch here on every visit to Hunter

Fabulous place for lunch, you probably need to book as it's very popular. The tables outside are lovely, in a garden setting opposite the cellar door. The pan fried Brussel sprouts were to die for!

Our reservation was made in advance. Greeted at the door with a smile and promotly seated. Waiter was excellent and service quick. When error was made with one main meal the waiter left it at the table for us to pick at whilst waiting for correct meal! All meals were delicious and well presented. Well worth the visit.
