I took my mother who was visiting from the Uk for a special treat. Great view. Excellent fish and chips and good wine selection. Not cheap though; if your budget won't stretch you can eat fish and chips from Doyle's on the nearby wharf

Every holiday deserves a memorable experience for all the right reasons. Having lunch at Doyles on the Beach is certainly one of those. If you book a table and are lucky enough to sit along the front of the veranda overlooking the beach, you will have the most wonderful time. The food is truly delicious and worth the price. The...

Real Fish Dinner after building up an appetite on walk of South Head up to Hornby Lighthouse. Great service out on balcony overlooking Watsons Bay with direct sight to Sydney. Barramundi over mash(ed potatoes) and asparagus with lemon sauce was delicious. Great presentation on Whole Trout, thankfully de-headed by chef, was easy to debone and had nice flakey texture and...

We didn't have a reservation but were ushered in within 5 minutes to a great table upstairs right by the window. Service was exceptional, fast and efficient and friendly. Food, well, it was pretty nice, maybe not as fabulous as it could have been, particularly for the price. My lobster salad was fresh and delicious but I counted my mouthfuls... More

We ordered half a dozen of Coffin Bay oysters, a portion of fish & chips, some calamari, and since my dad ain't a big fan of fried stuff, we also added in a grilled lemon sole to share amongst 4 us, The highlight is definitely the lemon sole. We had to wait for a while for it, which is actually... More

My wife and I have been long time customers of Doyles, generally having our"Special Days" each year dining here. On this occasion we travelled from Nowra for our sons birthday. As usual we ordered the seafood platter, we were disappointed at the quality of the meal, battered squid and fish looked tired, chips were cold and at $145.00 you would... More

Lunch for 2 on a Sunday, booked a few weeks in advance before we flew out from the UK, as we had heard it is a busy spot. Took ferry from Circular Quay and this added to the fun, great views of the harbour on the way. Doyles on the Beach was busy as it is a very popular place... More

Wonderful setting right on the sea looking out across the water to the city. The open windows as you dine on fresh seafood add to the atmosphere with pigeons frequently flying in! Lovely staff but no reservations can be made.
