Having the pleasure to eat at the Muse yesterday. Food was fantastic and service the same. For sure we will come again, next time we visit Port Elizabeth. And visit "Angelos" too for lamb chops. 😉

4,8 star for PE standards 4,2 stars by European standards Excellent, efficient service, accurate and fast. Intriguing cuisine, very tasty, and professionally presented. Recommend the bone marrow as a starter, lamb shank, fillet of lamb, The chocolate mousse (nice, different)but not The best I have...had in my life. The starter, very tasty, but stingy, recommended to have an extra Bone marrow ( which they gladly provided). The lamb shank, tender, tasty, delicious. Wonderful overall experience. Worth The visit. Recommend owners to address the Echoing factor, as it was on a very high pitch, almost impossible to communicate with each other. Also, fine dining experience but not the best of fine dining atmosphere. Creating a gap between the two. Our waiter Dian, very attentive to our needs, excellent waitering. Highly recommended place Wishing the owners a fruitful financial season CesanoMore

NEVER in my life have I had a delicious three course gluten free and vegan meal that did not comprise mostly of salad...until today! The food was delicious, the waiter even remembered all our names and they specially prepared a cake for my friends birthday....All that and I haven’t even mentioned how adorable this place is. I’m going to be a regular after today!!! Well done Muse, what a gem!More

While visiting PE phoned to make a booking - rather late as it was a Tuesday night and not expecting it to be full! It was totally full but Pippa offered to phone me back within half an hour as she expected a table to...become available. I'd heard this before so didn't expect much but true to her word I had a call within twenty minutes telling me a table was reserved for me. That's service! The food exceeded our expectations and the wine recommendation was excellent. This was our first visit but will definitely not be our last - will remember to book early next time :)More

While visiting PE, I made a point of visiting Muse after it came Highly recommended from friends. We were a party of three, And boy oh boy, we were not disappointed. I never took so long to decide what to have from the menu, as...everything sounded delicious. It was the most deliciously marvelous Meal I ever had... in my life! (And I have travelled the world!) The portions of all three dishes was ideal, and the mix of veg vs meat was superb. I wont have enough typing space to Rave, but You will not be sorry of you choose to dine here!More

Wow! Amazing! The food and service was truly excellent. Everything on the menu was the very definition of fine dining. The bone marrow starter, Karoo lamb mains and any of the desserts are highly recommended. A wonderful experience.

Muse outdid themselves! We were a table of 9 and every single dish was fantastic. From the starters to desserts, all the flavors and textures were perfectly paired. The service was impeccable too. A definite visit for any foodies out there. Well done Muse, we...will definitely be back again when we in town again.More
