This restaurant had 2 chef hats and you need to eat there to know why. The food is mouth watering and you do leave there full. If you love to wine and dine this is the place for you.

This would be my 2nd visit to Muse and to date service was impeccable in this centrally located fine diner. Its central location and good views adds to its character. Food has been fairly innovative and their coconut dessert magnificent. Well executed.

The building makes excellent use of the remaining light in the evening and the offerings are first class, from start to finish but the pick would easily be the muse coconut dessert.
