Contemporary European
Beautiful new modern European restaurant in Cheltenham, serving innovative dishes with subtle twists.
Muse Brasserie although predominantly classic French, reflects the inspiration and influence chef Franck has had on his culinary journey. The menu offers an array of dishes from all over Europe and flavours from both India and the Far East also play a significant part in creating some new and exciting palates.

It was my husbands birthday, they were very busy and we had a little wait for our table to become free, the wait was well worth it.. amazing food and flavours.

We love the fact that the chef comes out and makes sure you are enjoying your food. Eaten here twice now and met the chef on both occasions.

Interesting menu with Indian tones in several dishes. Good wine list. Can be a trifle noisy as voices echo.

We visited Muse early in the evening and were hugely impressed by the attitude and attentiveness of the staff. The menu is a fusion of French and Indian flavours and every dish sounded interesting. It was an extremely pleasant surprise when both the appearance and the flavours of the dishes we chose were nothing short of stunning. We will definitely eat there again. It is worth seeking out this restaurant in Cheltenham.

Nice 3 course Sunday lunch with bottomless booze.
All 3 courses were of a good standard and had a glass of wine or fizz with each.

Lots of very nice touches and fantastic service throughout, including the chefs coming out to see us. Steaks were good, as was everything that cake with it.
Need to try more on the menu to make a fair judgement.

Fabulous. Really enjoyed everything from the front of house service to the lovely food.
My only concern is that they don’t have specials and only change the menu every season. Specials imply freshness and originality and give me a reason to go more than once a season.
I wish them all the luck in the world they deserve it.
I’ll be back in the Winter!

Our first time here and it was great, from the moment we opened the door we were welcomed and looked after!

Food was great, a real mix of Asian and European, put together in an imaginative way.

Nice to meet the chef who spent time at the end of the evening with all tables.

We will return!

Really lovely restaurant. Great food and good value. Don't miss out on the Okra starter and the Seabass main course. Oh and the Romanian Pinot Noir was very good.

Excellent all round, only reason for a four rather than a five was we went on a weekday and the restaurant was quite quiet, no fault of the owners or staff can't encourage people enough to go to this restaurant to support it, and also whilst you can still get a table before everyone finds out how good it is

I rarely write reviews but Muse was so frustrating I hope they take this feedback constructively. The space itself is lovely and the food was excellent, but the service was - frankly - very poor.

This was a Saturday night and I would estimate the restaurant was 1/3 full, so not a front of house rushed off its feet. We ordered a bottle of wine from the Maitre D’/waiter. 20 mins later it still hadn’t arrived and it was only by waving that we caught his attention and finally got some.

My guest then queried an item on the mains and was specifically assured it came without a tomato sauce (the specials equivalent did). It duly arrived surrounded by aforementioned tomato sauce...

Restaurants make mistakes but - and this is the difficult bit - our waiter just came across as over eager and yet insincere. This contrasted with the chef/patron who personally came to the table to apologise and deducted said main from the bill.

So, I really want to like this place and for it to succeed in a tough market, but it always amazes me how restaurants get the food right but staff seem ill trained or suited to customer hospitality. The restaurants I return to over and over again aren’t those necessarily with the absolute best food (though that helps!) but those that make me feel genuinely welcome and valued and where the service is just effortlessly casual yet professional.

I probably will come back and give it a second chance, just not as quickly or as unequivocally as I may have done without these issues.

Absolutely exceptional new restaurant on the outskirts of the high street. Menu is very unique and closest competitor I'd say it Prithvi which is probably 50% more expensive. Decor is lovely and service very efficient. Try the Cod, it was superb!
