Pippa Middleton, 31, and her new husband James Matthews, 41, have been busy sampling some of Sydney’s best dining options during their honeymoon down under. So if you’re after some eating inspiration why not follow in their heavily papped footsteps to these approved eateries.
Cottage Point Inn
This fine-dining establishment is renowned for its stunning waterside locale on the edge of the Hawkesbury River and its elegant, seasonally lead cuisine.
The kitchen is headed by former Guillaume and Tetsuya chef Kevin Solomon, who has designed a menu focusing on local seafood and produce.
The secluded spot welcomed the newlyweds for lunch after they arrived via private seaplane. The restaurant offers a three-hour degustation including smoked eel, dusky flathead, stretched curd and cured pork, but owner Ally Oleson told the Daily Telegraph that Pippa dined on a raw wild kingfish starter before moving on to the restaurant’s signature kangaroo tartare. Her husband enjoyed the duck breast dish.
It’s been heralded as Sydney’s best seafood restaurant and it seemed to get a tick of approval from the high profile pair.
The ‘industrial-maritime’ space offers breathtaking views of Sydney Harbour and an innovative, award-winning menu.
Pippa and James dined on the degustation menu that featured the chef’s hand-picked selections of oysters, crabs and fish as well as desserts like passionfruit soufflé, ricotta cheesecake and chocolate coffee praline.
