“Delicious food, great location, lovely wine and top class service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2013

You can't ask for much more than is on offer here. The service is everything you could hope for. We turned up a little under dressed, but were made to feel extremely welcome and not at all uncomfortable. Unfortunately the vineyard itself was closed, but we decided to stay for a meal. It was a great choice. The food was utterly delicious: course after amuse-bouche, after course, after amuse-bouche; none of them missed the mark. The courses weren't rushed and we weren't left waiting either. The servers were there when you needed them and not hovering around when you didn't. Always a difficult balance, but they nailed it. We were even walked to the door when we left. Wonderful evening.

“Fine Dining in a Fine Venue”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2013

We tasted some lovely wines at the adjoining Cellar Door before lunch. From the moment you walk into this restaurant, you realize that this is no ordinary eating place. The staff are most professional and very knowledgeable on the dishes and even on how they are prepared. The food is superb. The offer is that you have to have a minimum of two dishes per person. A starter and a main or a main and a desert. We chose to have one starter, which we shared before the mains. And then we shared a desert after mains. It was just perfect.

“Unbelievable chips”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2013

Yes the mains are superb, and the wines even more so (you can't go wrong with HV semillons never disappoint). The highlight for us was the chips. We actually smelt them from the next table and decided to order a serving for ourselves -we liked it to much we ended up having seconds twice. Wish we'd discovered it earlier though, then we'd have had it with our mains. A wonderful experience.

Right from the very welcome by Muse staff, our experience was fantastic! Warm, elegant, modern and stylish. The food was creative and extremely tasty. The timing was perfect. The wine selection extensive and the service flawless!
