Under Troy Rhoades-Brown at Muse, Josh found his food philosophy, “Cooking for others is the greatest gift.” Josh won the Brett Graham award sending him on a global adventure, training at some of the best restaurants before returning home, working for James Viles at Biota Dining. Now home at Muse Kitchen, Josh brings his love of produce & a serious passion for French food."

When the sun is shining and you’re sitting outdoors eating good food, drinking good wine, it’s hard to be anything other than thoroughly contented at this restaurant. Always a great outcome.

Amazing! We loved it so much that we booked Muse Restaurant for dinner after we ate here for lunch.

Had a fantastic 60th wedding anniversary celebration. The food was excellent quality. We shared the deserts and all of them were to die for. The atmosphere was warm and cosy on a winter's night. Most impressive was the service which was attentive and friendly. I have never been to a restaurant in which every arrival and every departure had someone to open the door; very impressive. Will definitely go back next time I'm in the Hunter.

Great night out! The service was friendly and efficient while the food set a very high standard! Wine list was a mixture of locals; several we hadn't had before but have subsequently gone and bought! We enjoyed every minute and wouldn't hesitate to go back again or recommend to others. Thanks

This was our third visit and it is still our favourite restaurant in the Hunter. Food, staff, location and ambience are all five star.
