Great for fish and chips lovers

This restaurant has really great tasting fresh fish and chips. It gets a bit busy though and we could not get a place to sit down and eat.

The food at Doyles is always good. We enjoyed a lovely meal with an incredible view. Life doesn't get much better.

Most expensive fish and chips in Sydney,but it is a wonderful location. You can't beat it for the view,but it is a very expensive one. My wife had the Lobster Mornay at $73 plus and it was tasteless-we doubt the lobster was fresh and probably frozen before being presented in a lobster shell. My rare yellow fin tuna was very...

a beautiful spot to sit and watch the ocean and boats coming and going. You can catch a ferry here from the CBD which on a lovely day is a great way to travel. The very old buildings that make up the restaurant are very pretty and are right on the beach. The staff are well trained and professional. What... More

Loved this restaurant, location is awesome with views of the Sydney skyline to die for. Very busy so best to book for lunch. Food was superb with seafood being dominant. Loved it.

Location: with a stunning view towards the city, the location is a key selling point. Service: amateur and inattentive. Water and wine was not replenished. Plates were taken away as others in the group still ate. Mains were brought several minutes apart, with the “vegetarian” pasta being served with seafood. Two of our group had their desserts served 10 and... More

No kids fish and chips meal, so you have to pay for adults potion (which is too much for a 4 year old) Plus, make sure you bring plenty of cash as they don't take card payments. And after all of that, it's just fish and chips like anywhere else. That said, they do a selection of fresh seafood as... More

One of the finest, freshest and tastiest seafood menus you will find anywhere in the world. Atmosphere also good sitting on edge of Watsons bay with its boats, sand and broader views. The more mature waitress serving in the original dining room could do with some customer service training. Not that sge was in anyway rude, just surprisingly abrupt and... More

It's very hard when you dine at Doyles (absolutely book a table on the veranda and if there isn't one on the day you're wanting then wait for another day) not to be completely seduced by the location. The view is spectacular and the proximity of the beach and the water are about as good as it gets anywhere on... More
