We dined at Muse Restaurant for a birthday celebration, it was so decadent but so amazing! We chose the tasting menu with 5 courses and each course was delicious. We probably only needed 3 courses as by the 5th I was completely full. We also did the paired wines which I would recommend. Being a hatted restaurant it was very... More

We have been here previously and were looking forward to eating there again. Perfect service, perfect food and fine wine - what more do you need for that special evening.

Having availed ourselves of Muse's sumptuous "little brother", Muse Kitchen, we were determined to sample the delights of this highly recommended restaurant located at the Hungerford Hill Estate. Booking several months in advance, just to make sure we didn't miss out for our special occasion, we really were treated to a gastronomic delight. Every dish was not only delicious, it... More

canapes and champers on arrival for our party followed by a degustation with paired french wines. The fireplace was on too. \ The room is high end but comfortable. Staff are attentive and helpful but never invasive. the menu changes regularly but the swordfish sashimi was delicious and with nitrogen chilled wasabi dressing that leaves your plate steaming like a...

Every aspect of our visit to Muse Restaurant was lovely. The atmosphere was chic and relaxed. Staff were engaging and warm, and very helpful. The sommelier provided beautiful wines by the glass (a bonus in any restaurant). As always we chose a to order from the a la carte menu, avoiding the degustation but wanting to best match our wine...

Had a special occasion meal with friends whilst visiting the Hunter Valley. This restaurant is fairly expensive, but they have an amazing choice of wines available, as to be expected I guess. Only thing I would fault is the amount of time we waited for our food to arrive, however to be fair to the restaurant, they recognised this and... More

My partner and I visited for dinner over the long weekend in January. Staff were welcoming, immaculately presented, knowledgeable and witty. We took the degustation, and the food was beautiful. Hard to find fault with any of the courses. The coconut for dessert was a stand out. Worth dining here for this dish alone.
