Perfect evening. Lovely ferry ride, my request for an outdoor table delivered a front row view of the beach and harbour. Staff were delightful, friendly and helpful. Seemed to come from all over the world..an array of accents. Food excellent. Best scallops ever. Really really good seafood pie. Very enjoyable and just a perfect setting.

When we arrived on a perfect weather evening we were shown to an indoor table despite having been promised an outdoor table. After telling the waiter what we had been promised it was quickly sorted out and we were seated at an outdoor table that was readily available with a spectacular view . Food and service were good. Portions could... More

Doyles is world famous for its position and view, quite rightly so, it is stunning. The food is good and the portions very large, but you pay for the privilege of being there. The staff are very friendly and helpful and it is worth a visit if you are in Sydney and your budget isn't too tight. Take the ferry... More

Our lunch at Doyles onthe Beach was superb, we sat inside in the upper level airconditioned room of the restaurant and I was glad on this extremely hot day that we did. My garlic prawns were plentiful and delicious, my husband had the signature stuffed prawns and enjoyed them too. We both had the snapper, scallop and prawn pie and... More

Booked a table before we left UK and were positioned on the veranda in the shade with fabulous views. Service was good as was the food. It is relatively expensive but worth it for the experience. Eat same menu at the fish market for half the price! Ruth and John Solihull England

what a great venue for a special fish and chip lunch. Excellent service and top class food. Don't go here for fast food or cheap food, but for a memorable event in great surroundings would thoroughly recommend this restaurant.

What a beautiful spot. Great atmosphere with boats coming and going to this lovely little sandy bay and a great view of Sydney skyscrapers as a backdrop. A little expensive but busy anyway, the food is of a high standard obviously mainly fresh fish and seafood. It can get a bit cramped when busy and one of our party ended... More

After spending the afternoon at the beach club we went to Doyle's for dinner. We ordered Doyle's selection and Barramundi and when it came out it looked sad and tasteless and we were right. We left without finishing our food very disappointed. We will never ever return. It was like paying for a gourmet dinner but you ended up with... More

With so many Doyles to choose from and so little time, I think we hit the jackpot with Doyles on the Beach, Watsons Bay. If you want the best experience here then make a reservation and ask for a table right at the beach edge for a great view! The service was amazingly efficient and friendly - for a restaurant...

I loved Watson Bay, but our visit was made even better by our lunch here at the oldest Fish and Chip shop in Australia. Australia`s fish restaurants are miles ahead of the British chippie, and even Fish restaurants like Loch Fyne do not quite match the Oz standard. After a busy morning in the playground, on the beach and looking... More
