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."

    Always a pleasure to eat at The Muse Kitchen. First time to add a cheese platter at the end of the meal (usually a sweat eater) very happy with the selection. We return every trip to the Hunter and usually add a wine tasting at the end!

    We were really looking forward to coming for lunch. We arrived at Tulloch winery and parked. Then were looking for the sign. I then looked up GPS and it told me we were at the wrong place and ended up at Muse Restaurant. I felt foolish that when we arrived to no booking to hear there is two Muse restaurants. Anyway. We enjoyed our meal at Muse Restaurant and loved our day at the Hunter. Regards Andrew

    After enjoying a visit to Muse kitchen a couple of years ago we decided to revisit it. The young woman who greeted us was unfriendly and the menu very limited. The lamb we had was nice but the accompaniments just didn't go with the dish. Way too spicy that took away the gentle taste of the lamb. The dessert I chose was a souffle with 'hay icecream' it was served on a plate surrounded by hay which I didn't think was very hygienic , although it did taste delicious..

    Delicious food with generous serving sizes! Couldn’t even finish the main meal it was so big which was sad because it was really well cooked!

    It is suggested that the Brussel sprout dish could be improved enormously if the chef took care to prevent the dish being prevented without the fibrous content. It was both annoying and greatly reduced the pleasure. We felt the service was not at the level of similar style restuarnts. We were left to fill our own water and wine glasses and were left to fend for ourselves.
