I'm trying to think about what to write and my mouth is watering remembering what we are that night. The food was beyond our expectations it was truly amazing that 70 hour slow cooked wagyu is unlike anything I've ever tasted it was perfect 10/10. I opted for the vegetarian entree and it had so much flavour and substance that... More

We had our luch there. The food was presented great. However the taste was ok for me. This is this kind of place where you need to visit to try but didn't catch my heart. Worth trying but I don't think I will be back. Tried and that's all. Wine was matched good.

We were lucky enough to snag a walk in on a Sunday lunchtime. The place was full but they were very professional and found us a table. Service and food was fantastic and the Muse Coconut dessert lives up to its reputation and is a MUST. Not sure about the garlic chocolate ice cream though, we were not fans but... More

There is much acclaim for Muse from both critics and friends alike with good reason. Sitting next to the Hungerford Hill cellar door, the premises are wonderfully rustic and charming. Having a toddler can be tricky in any dining situation but for our Saturday lunch sitting we found many other families in the same predicament, and the ambience caters for... More

Lucky enough to have dined at Muse Restaurant recently, and what a delightful experience. It was a -2 degrees night outside but warm and inviting from the moment we walked through the front door. Met but friendly and equally warm staff and taken to our table close to a huge log fire. Not too much wrong with this picture. Then... More

We have been lucky enough to have dined at Muse 4 times in the last 8 months for particularly special occasions. The food and service have been outstanding each time. The sommelier, Stefan, is so welcoming and knowledgeable in his wine suggestions and makes you feel like you're a guest being entertained at his home. He introduced us to a... More

We had visited this restaurant 6 years ago and were keen to go again - not disappointed as menu, overall service and presentation plus food still of good quality. The menu was well designed although not extensive. The cuttlefish was nicely done with black ink featured taro chips - followed by the lamb rump - nice use of favours without... More
