We had a group of 16 and they handled us perfectly. The menu had shared entree's, the salmon was delish, the chicken & date terrine wasn't anyone's fav. It was the only thing no one really ate. The snapper was also perfect. It was a lot of food that's for sure. The wine was superb. There was a choice of... More

Food is a marvel. Really loved the quality, service, menu & wine. The setting and chocolate shop is a delight.

This is the most terrible restaurant I've ever visited. I have no idea why it has so many good reviews. We arrived 20 minutes earlier our booking. They said to wait. Ok. Ordered food. In half an hour first dish arrived - chiabatta (3 pieces of bread with butter). Horrible quality. So stale and sharp so it was impossible to... More

We called twice to get a table only to be told they were booked we decided to pop in around 5 and to our luck they managed to book us a table for 8:30. Beautiful interior and great customer service. The team are very friendly and professional. Not a huge menu but very pleasant all the same. I would not... More

Food lacked flavour, maybe required more seasoning. Staff were pleasant, good wine list, lovely setting.

Muse Kitchen is simply the best lunch restaurant that I know. I love simple food cooked really well and that is their strength. You will need a booking though, better made a week or more ahead, even for lunch but sometimes they are also open or available for dinner (Always open but often booked by groups). When we were there... More

Lovely old building and décor sets a relaxing mood. Friendly helpful service. Four choices of main, chicken, duck, fish or kangaroo. Prices over the top for what is provided.

Had a wonderful meal. Cured pork belly was delicious. Went very well with the Keith Tulloch semillon. Service was impeccable.

We had booked for lunch at another restaurant where we had eaten before but they had had to cancel due to illness. As we had just had coffee in the next door cafe, we were fortunate enough to have the last table for lunch; and what an excellent lunch it was! Great food, great service and we were seated outside...

After eating at Muse Restaurant a few months earlier, we were very pleasantly surprised with Muse Kitchen, it's more informal/relaxed, but equally fantastic sister restaurant. We ordered one of every starter dish, plus two mains and two desserts to share amongst four. Service was very friendly and prompt and our waitress was very knowledgeable about the local ingredients used. Every... More
