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.

My husband and I celebrated our wedding anniversary dinner at Muse. This was our first time dining in a hatted restaurant and due to the prices being at the higher end of the scale we were a little apprehensive as to whether we would consider the money well spent.

Overall we found the entire experience to be nothing short of amazing! The service was wonderful with very attentive staff. The food - absolutely to die for. This is why you pay the big bucks for a restaurant like this. Each and every mouthful was like an explosion of flavour. A little pricey? Yes. Was it worth it? Absolutely!

Our third visit to this place and yet again another amazing experience. From the front of house to the kitchen this place knows what it is doing! We spoilt ourselves with the tasting menu and added in the venison for an extra course; it's always cooked so well no matter how it's prepared. Matching wines of hungerford hill suited each dish we tried. The bad thing is we can't enjoy our other nights here as we always compare it back to Muse and nothing ever gets close. Boris our waiter again is legend and makes our time that much more special. A must if in the hunter!

Currently the best restaurant in the Hunter albeit with a limited menu and expensive. Being located within the Hungerford Hill is a definite advantage.

It is by far the very best restaurant I have ever been to and eaten in... The whole experience from the outside look of the establishment to the inside ambiance.. so classy and yet elegant. The service beyond imagination. Approachable, friendly, knowledgable and yet professional staff. The food just sublime. The smallest of detail was taken care of... I will definetely go back again and would recommend this restaurant to anyone who is willing to spend a little more money but get value.
