My first opinion upon arriving to Muse Kitchen at Tulloch Winery was Wow! What a beautiful place. The staff were very professional, friendly and attentive. The food was beautifully prepared and delivered with excellence. The atmosphere casual yet stylish. A return visit is a definite.

The food was excellent.The service was acceptable.The waiter, after taking our order and removing the menus, asked if we wanted some bread. We accepted. Big error! When the check came, I noticed he had charged us... More

First meal of our long weekend getaway and still our best meal! A very relaxed atmosphere, the dishes came out so fast that I was half expecting something terrible! We ordered smoked salmon with toasted bread, ham hock and gruyere toastie and spanner crab gnocchi. All the dishes were great, however the smoked salmon was stand out. It came out... More

Dining with a family with small children I was very interested in how Muse Kitchen would cater. They were exceptional. The staff were welcoming and accommodating; most importantly the food was interesting, detailed and delicious. New ideas with classic ingredients. It willing a consistent favourite on my trips to the Hunter. Well done team!

This is our second visit to Muse Kitchen, however this time we brought the children with us. Once again they did not disappoint. The staff are professional and polite. The meals were simply bursting with flavour, with everything on the plate complimenting every other flavour. Our family choose the beef cheek, duck, fish & gnocchi dishes, with our little one...
