John McFadden's Recommendations

Restaurants:
Best cafe at Three Blue Ducks
Three Blue Ducks. Go to dish is scrambled eggs, black sausage, dill cucumber yoghurt salad and red currant jam. Best coffee is thePrickly Pear Mona Vale, best part - they know your order and the week would not be complete without a caffeine hit from these guys. Boathouse Palm Beach - best part it's overlooking Pittwater.
Late night dining at Golden Century Seafood Restaurant
For a quick fix Can't go past Golden Century, Pipis in XO sauce
Favourite international restaurant at The Bridge Room
Great setting with slick service. Go to dish, sake cured John Dory, Otway Forest shiitake, miso Japanese salad, daikon, shaved kombu
Best kept secret at Cottage Point Inn
It's a fair hike through National Parks but worth the journey, stunning location and set aside for “quality time with family”
Love the surrounds, garden to restaurant concept. Don't be the designated driver!
Special occasion at Quay
You want to impress then you can't go past Quay.
