I have eaten at Muse Kitchen on a number of occasions but most recently last week. It's a beautiful location in the grounds of the Keith Tulloch Winery. The menu is not large but it is thoughtful and balanced with wonderful fresh ingredients cooked simply with skill. The service staff were exceptional, friendly and professional with a good balance of... More

We went to Muse Kitchen last week for lunch and reserved a seat as well as the tasting platter. With that, we got six meals as I recall. We were free to choose the entrées and appetizers but had to stick with the main and the dessert as set (due to the quantities they make). This was fine but we... More

We came here for a girls' weekend. Ordered the warm ciabatta to share; chicken, pork and market fish for mains; and blue cheese + pumpkin as a side. The food was tasty and well-executed, but-lacked flair, and the mains were a little steep (around $36-$40). While we were under the impression that the menu was seasonally-driven, the dishes felt particularly... More

Staff were nice and attentive with helpful recommendations. Simple ingredients and flavours - carefully prepared. Comfortable setting. We'll be back again.

The restaurant has a nice rustic setting but the ceviche entree we ordered was flavourless and tasted like the fish was a few days old. Service was inconsistent and dismissive.

Came here for lunch with a group of friends. Firstly - we weren't paying enough attention and didn't realise there was a sister restaurant (Muse Restaurant) and ended up there first. Luckily Muse Kitchen was only 15mins away. Loved the restaurant outside and inside, has a great relaxed setup and atmosphere and good service. We ordered the smoked salmon, dutch... More

These guys serve up a fabulous meal. Their chicken liver parfait, ceviche and pork tenderloin was 200 out of 100 on the flavour scale. Their kids menu did not shortchange either. The kids gnocchi was great at well. We topped the meal with their panacotta. Would love to repeat a meal here.

It was a good choice to come have lunch here. The food was great, we ordered entree and mains only because we didn't book a table and had limited time for a table. Definitely recommend this restaurant, choose the grilled trout/market fish dishes they are great.

There are plenty of expensive restaurants in the Hunter Valley including the big brother to Muse Kitchen. The restaurant has a lovely country style atmosphere and is located within a great winery. It isn't open every night for dinner and we were lucky enough to be there for an evening meal. Food prices are reasonable and some of the wine... More

Beautiful view of the mountain as the sunset at 7pm. And really good food too. Ceviche was fabulous, the pork was done to perfection and the sweet potato purée was the perfect accomplishment.
