We live in the Hunter Valley and enjoy the local restaurants. We are always happy to pay for quality. Four of us had dinner at Muse and found the price to be over the top for a very small serve of average food we could easily prepare at home. Muse is an absolute rip-off.

I am a long time visitor to the Hunter Valley and over the years have been a bit let down by some of the places we have eaten in. Previous restaurants we have eaten in were trying but just didn't hit the mark when it came to fine dining.. That is, UNTIL NOW....

I am overjoyed to have found Muse!!! I totally echo the comments from the previous posts. This is the place to go eat in the Hunter! No question....

Five of us ate there and everyone's starter, main and dessert were all amazing. The staff were SO friendly and nice but not overbearing. This restaurant is TOP of my list and I will be back..

WELL DONE MUSE!!!

We had a set lunch menu for a very large group. The food was truly the best we have ever had. A meal to this restaurant is a must for everyone who enjoys good food.

This restaurant was recently awarded a chefs hat and you can see why. First of all the service is high quality. From the moment you pull up to the restaurant there is someone waiting to open the restaurant door and welcome you in. They are very attentive and thoroughly helpful. The meals are modern Australian in style and are of a good quality. A selecion of home baked breads are offered while you wait which were quite nice. I have to agree with everyone else, the Nitro Ice Cream has to be their signature. It was absolutely amazing and I would go back just for that.
The atmosphere was great, stylish, warm and cosy with an impressive fireplace burning away.
