Was taken to Muse Restaurant for a birthday dinner. I went in knowing there were good reviews but not really knowing what to expect. I was absolutely not let down. The service was friendly and on the ball, the food exquisite. What I was really taken with was the 'weighting' of the meal. I was told our sitting would go... More

A Wednesday night dinner with hubby on a mid week escape to the Hunter. Service was amazing from the moment we arrived and our favourite part of the night. The building and room/decor is contemporary and classy. Food was delicious and so skilfully prepared and presented. Wine was great of course. Loved the sweet corn risotto. Coconut dessert a highlight.... More

We went for diner with a group of 12 and I had high expectations. The service was great, staff friendly, nice atmosphere but the food was not something I would go back for - just maybe the dessert. I had the Smoked Mackerel as entrée and found it very salty- didn't think it was anything special. Then I had the... More

I have dined at Muse twice now, from the service to the decadent food Muse is a culinary experience. The degustation menu with matching wines is a MUST, its is worth every dollar. The wines complimented the food in a way not thought possible. The Muse coconut dessert is to die for and looks amazing too. I truly believe it... More

Every time I come here it never disappoints me. Service is the best you'll get anywhere in Australia. Staff are so well trained & attentive. The food is always great, you can tell the produce is fresh & the menu has such great diversity. Worth going just to have the Muse Coconut. You will not regret it!

Came down to Pokolbin for the Bruce Springsteen weekend and ate here on the Friday night. A spellbinding night. This is Australia's best restaurant without a doubt. The service is impeccable; thank you to Linda and Stef, the sommelier. Amazing and friendly service and attention to detail, without hovering around, but happy to answer all questions. Outside thunder and lightning;... More
