“Incredible service, atmosphere, food and wine.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2013

The serving sizes are very generous so as tempting and delicious as the bread is, don't fill up as the food is sensational.

Will definitely come again.

“Excellent food, service and venue...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 4, 2013

We dined here last weekend to celebrate our anniversary and were not disappointed. The food and service (thanks to Boris) is still world class and the venue cosy at night with its open log fire. He enjoyed the scallops for entree and lamb for main; I was happy with the quail entree - but we both agreed that the winner was the blue eye trevalla main which was all about the mushrooms - the best! Unfortunately we had to forgo dessert to get back in time to watch the rugby! We highly recommend this restaurant.

“Amazing Lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2013 via mobile

We thoroughly enjoyed our Lunch at the Muse Restaurant. I took a risk and tried the Pork Terrine and was very pleased. My spouse had the beef Filet which he said was excellent. We sat outside on the patio and enjoyed people watching the other diners. We had to tell the wait staff more than once about being gluten free. They brought wheat based bread with my meal which I would have eaten if I had not asked the server if it was gluten free (and that is after we declined their initial offer of bread). I marked them down one point because of this oversight. I did not eat the dessert my spouse ordered because I wasn't sure of its gluten status--the servers were very busy with other diners

“What a treat”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 27, 2013

We dined last weekend at Muse. What fantastic food. Food portions were perfect, flavours, attention to detail, made our visit most pleasurable. Our party of four indulged in 3 courses and we left, wanting to visit again. Well worth the trip. For a seating suggestion, perhaps ask not to sit at the first table after reception, near the fire. The draft from the door being opened, was a bit chilly.

“Nothing to Compare!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2013

There is nothing in Pokolbin to compare. Outstanding! This is what all restaurants should aim to be.
