I visited Muse Kitchen last Saturday for lunch with 3 friends (including TravelbugsX3 who has also posted a review). All the dishes we chose were beautifully presented and the flavours were amazing. The standouts were the Applewood Smoked Salmon with sour cream and toasted rye sourdough as an appertiser and the Pork Tenderloin with sugar snap peas, asparagus, cauliflower cream... More

This restaurant was recommended and it certainly didn't disappoint. We would definitely make this a regular when we visit the Hunter again. Food was fresh with amazing flavours. Service was great in a beautiful restaurant with a Hamptons feel. Although on the pricey side for a lunch it is certainly well worth it.

This is a limited review BUT I had the best pork tenderloin I have ever eaten. Beautifully plated. Wonderful service. If you get the chance to eat in this beautiful restaurant, definitely do it.

From start to finish the whole night was excellent. Staff were very friendly and attentive. They were also completely understanding when we asked to move to a new table as we were directly under the air conditioning. Food was brilliant, couldn't fault one dish, from the portal starter to the chocolate fondant and caramelised white chocolate desert. 5 out of... More

Highest of accolades to the gorgeous and intimate restaurant in a charming location. Our group of four had the most superb lunch accompanied by local wines and great coffee. Cannot recommend this place more highly. Don't miss out on the chocolates next door at Cocoa Nib!

Yes - Muse Kitchen is open for dinner, but only on Saturday evenings - and it is well worth the journey (but nothing is that far away in the Hunter). Menu was excellent - not a huge amount of choice (6 mains) - but every one of us enjoyed our different meals. The Duck Confit was divine... Good wine list... More

Again, returning to Muse Kitchen for lunch with friends was just outstanding. We've never been disappointed with either the food or the service. Set within the immediate area of The Keith Tulloch Winery it is just a perfect setting - classy yet with enough informality to suit all diners. On Saturday we were a table of five - the menu...

Situated in the Keith Tulloch winery, this stunning restaurant is located in a beautiful setting. Makes you fell welcome as soon as you arrive. Kids friendly, delicious meals, and super friendly staff makes it a completely relaxing and pleasant experience. Highly recommend this place.
