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

Site focused on wine selling and tasting. Did not like the quality of the wine, and only positive about the restaurant is that it matches the quality of the wine. Interesting to see that with many tables empty, they turn away certain visitors as fully booked while others few minutes later get offered a table ?! Not sure how it... More

We sat outside on a lovely day. We looked at the menu and decided to share some bread and cauliflower around our 4 people table as entrée. There was only one type of bread, and you could chose to put oil on it, vinegar or caramelised onions, none of these improved the bread in any way. We had the 'catch... More

Had dinner here with the family on a Saturday night. there were six of us and a toddler. As there were two vegetarians with the group the restaurant went out of their way to give them an amazing meal, offering meals outside of the menu. The waitress was really great. She knew the menu inside out and was very accommodating... More

We spent a lovely relaxing lunch at this gorgeous cafe yesterday. This is our second visit & definitely won't be our last. We read a great review in the SMH weeks ago about Keith Tulloch's & Muse Kitchen & we were so pleased to have visited MK. The staff make you feel so welcome, they are friendly, efficient & delightful... More

One of the best restaurants I have been to for some time. The location of this gorgeous restaurant is at Keith Tulloch vineyards, providing diners with a glorious outlook over beautifully manicured green grass, rolling vines and hills... what a view! The ambiance is fantastic: fresh, casual, relaxing and clean; with outdoor tables and indoor tables all designed to make... More
