Excellent as always...

The great thing about this restaurant is that its quality is consistent certainly over the couple of years we have been going there. The service and food were both as one would expect - excellent. The duck pate, the prawns and the coconut dessert were to die for. Well done, keep it up!

Hubby and I enjoyed a long lunch on our long awaited child free weekend. We loved this restaurant. Staff provided attentive and professional service. Produce was high quality, fresh and cooked to perfection. We had a trout starter and mains were beef cheeks (The winner dish) and roast chicken (also very good). A delightfully relaxed atmosphere and suitably matched decor... More

We thoroughly enjoyed a delicious sharing lunch in picture perfect surroundings. We started with the duck pate and then followed with light as air gnocchi with crab, sautéed prawns and the best Brussel sprouts we have ever eaten. Service was attentive and charming.

After spending 2 hours doing a wine tasting in the Keith Tulloch Cellar Door, we ventured downstairs to the Must Kitchen for lunch. And we were as impressed with the food, service and atmosphere as we were by the wine tasting. The Lamb Shoulder was amazing - so much flavor and the wine matching with it was sensational. Will definitely... More

Fantastic place with sensational service. We were looking for a nice little place for a small meal and we found it with Muse Kitchen. Great menu and wine list. Even the Brussel Sprouts were amazing ;)

Perfect! Beautiful food and awesome surroundings. Wait staff were excellent. Only open for lunch but seven days unlike a lot of restaurants in the area. A must if you are visiting the Hunter Valley.

From the moment you walk in you know you're in for a great night. Me and my wife decided on the 3 course menu and from start to end including the pallet cleanser was to die for. The service was second to none. Would highly recommend Muse to all our friends.

I'd like to give this place 3,5 bubbles. Somewhere between average and very good. We came here for lunch, but both of us had difficulties choosing what to have. The menu looked more like a dinner menu. However what we were served was tasty enough. The brussels sprouts alone is a reason to come back, and the toasted sandwich was... More
