What started as a conversation with Chef Bella on what business to engage in during one of their private cooking lessons, Architect Magsie and wife Maria Rossini Valdez never thought that L’Muse would be realized during the time of pandemic.
L’Muse meaning wonder or beautiful, a name that will bring a classy and elegant dining experience to the local clientele within Zamboanga City.
Meet the dynamic husband and wife team behind the brand.

The interiors were designed by both Arch. Magsie and Chef Bella and the result was an ambiance that is both modern and elegant, with a clean and minimalist décor. And we love the lightning of the place because it helps you appreciate the food that is being served.
