“Amazing service and food in a beautiful location”

Visited on 29th March 2012
Being from Sydney, I am used to good quality restaurants - but the experience at Muse was better than them all.
The waitstaff are extremely polite, attentive and responsive.
All meals were cooked and plated to perfection - the desserts were especially amazing! (do yourself a favour and try the Turkish Delight dessert).

“So Nice!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 28, 2012

After reading all these good reviews I thought it was a must to visit Muse whilst in the Hunter. The food and service was amazing! We got a complementary starter and little desert. Both were very nice. It is a bit expensive but I thought it was worth it :)

“Delightful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 21, 2012

A return visit here and we were as happy 2nd time around 2 years earlier!
The setting is lovely, the staff attentive and the food is fabulous.
We love coming up to the hunter and enjoying local produce. Today once again we were not disappointed.

“Expensive but worth it”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 20, 2012

I visited here under pressure from my wife! The price was putting me off but I'm very glad I relented - the food was superb and matched by the calm atmosphere and excellent service. We both absolutely loved it!

“all that changes is the menu”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 15, 2012

At various times I have been to Muse for a formal wine dinner, afternoon tea or a just-the-two-of-us experience. The only thing that changes is the variety of superbly prepared dishes. The decor, the service, the attention to making me feel special remains. No rush - just a feeling of country relaxation. Food, wine, friends, ambience - does it get any better than this?
