Muse has the perfect checklist I use for somewhere I want to go out and eat. It’s a creative, artistic space with a gorgeous garden area; it’s totally relaxed with a welcoming feel. This magical place has friendly service and consistently delicious food.
Lyndi-Lee clearly has restaurant in her blood; she is the daughter of Gennarro – owner of Caffé Mario at the Knysna Waterfront which has for many years had the local reputation for the #1 go-to eatery in Knysna. She knows exactly what she is doing, and has learnt much while working with her father for many years.
The Pizza is among the best I have ever tasted, the toppings, creative and unusual. Full Moon is my favourite: Buffalo Mozzarella, fresh basil, strawberries and balsamic reduction. They have fantastic vegan options including a to-die-for cake. The naked burger is just unbelievably decadent and yum.
She sources the best and, wherever possible, local ingredients and it’s clearly evident in her delicious and more-ish food. The back garden is one of my favourite places to be – tables dotted under the trees and among the herbs and veg growing all around you. You know you are in a place of authenticity.
The lounge area with sofa, pool and games table is a fun space to be in, meet new people, socialize and just generally hang out.
Muse is a must – get there soon! If it’s not already on your list of favourites it soon will be.
