Muse was recommended to us for a trip to the hunter and believe me we were not. Disappointed
The service is impeccable and the food Devine .
We have what we call the dinner club and try to eat at as many chefs hat restaurants as we can and this is by far the best we have eaten at .
Their attention to detail is commendable and we highly recommend this restaurant as a dining experience
No doubt you will spend the $$$$ But well worth it

“Worth Raving About”
Reviewed October 22, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Looking for a long, leisurely dinner in classy surroundings, with impeccable service and amazing food? Look no further than Muse. Within the gorgeous Hungerford Hill cellar door building, you're also assured of award winning wines and fabulous bubbly. In fact, join the Club and receive a discount on dinner. We had the degustation and were not disappointed. Looking forward to going again!

“Top class dining experience - Attentive staff”
Reviewed October 7, 2013

We were recommended this restaurant as being "very impressive, if just a little pricey" - This ended up being a very accurate summary, although we were happy with the cost, being a special birthday occasion.

We took part in the 6 course tasting menu, paired with wines from Hungerford Hill. We were very impressed with the Lamb, which was a new item on the menu (first day on the menu!) as well as the sea scallops. The beetroot course was also surprising, given that I am not a huge fun of beetroot. I enjoyed the pairing of the wines, in particular the 2010 Cab Sav with the lamb, that we came back the following day and bought a couple of bottles.

From the very beginning when we were welcomed at the front door, to when we were leaving, we were always looked after by the attentive staff. I do recommend it.
