Description: Muse has become renowned for not only its food but also for its professional and friendly service. Offering a season driven Contemporary Australian menu, the food is fresh and exciting without overcomplicating the ingredients. Using quality produce, sourcing locally whenever possible, the dishes show technique, restraint and respect.

Just about everything about Muse was superb, from the friendly greeting and really genuinely outstanding service throughout (always friendly, helpful, informative), to the completely delicious food and wine. Great a la carte choices and extensive wine list. It really was one of the best dinners my girlfriend and I have had in two years in Australia.
The one tiny negative - being a special weekend for my gf I had been assured of a table by the window when booking, but we were then given one in the middle of the restaurant. Hate complaining so didn't say anything, but was a slight shame. Although the atmosphere was very good around us so didn't affect the experience too much!
We're still talking about the food a couple of weeks on so will hopefully be back sooner rather than later...

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.

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.
