This restaurant is a must if you are in the area. We ordered chips to takeaway and ate them on the beach. Really yummy chips and a beautiful view- simply perfect! Watch out for the seagulls though!!

I took my partner here for his birthday as he had talked about always wanting to go. We had amazing scallops for an entrée and fish and chips for mains the food was as good as the view. It gets very busy so always book although they seem to happily accommodate those who just show up if they are happy... More

The food was good they know how to cook seafood only complaint was the price of alcohol exhorbitant I decided not to have wine as at $50.00 a bottle and that wasn't top range just a bit expensive. The food was a bit overpriced to but it was good so no complaints there

We read lots and lots of reviews on this establishment prior to dining there and well, became somewhat confused. After having dined, prior to its closing, at Doyles on the Quay, we simply couldn't understand how such a prominent Sydney icon as Doyles on the Beach could be reviewed so up-and-down, good-and-bad, wonderful-to-poor. We found out. Due to their location... More

We were really looking forward to eating here after having had superb meals at Doyles at the Quay. Not in the same league. Our meal was on the table very quickly, too quickly, like maybe three minutes. The lobster was tough and bland, the rest of the food was not much better and except for the saving grace of the...

Great location , you are paying for romantic sea-side location and food. Bit overpriced , but for my standard is still worth to pay for it and affordable. Order the Doyle' Fisherman Platter , all fresh seafood & the portion is really filling for 2 stomach.

The location of Doyles is wonderful. Great service. You are definitely paying for the location. The hot and cold seafood platter for two was ok and overpriced. We've had better seafood platters elsewhere and did not leaving feeling satisfied. Probably wouldn't dine there again

Went to Doyle's after reading in my Lonely Planet that it would be a shame to miss their super famous fish n chips. I hiked the area where the restaurant is located before finally making my way to the restaurant, so I had worked up quite the appetite. The atmosphere at the restaurant is quite nice, but a bit more... More
