Have a picnic on the grass with Doyle's takeout

I've only eaten here once but it was very good! I recommend you look out your picnic blanket and park yourself on the grass with some seafood from Doyle's and take in the views!

I like Watsons Bay and having fish and chips or a picnic- but the take away fish and chips are over-priced and not the best- batter can be too greasy. Try Dee Why for the best

It is order at one place and eventually food is brought out to your number. Gone are the glory days of table service for the now (at Best) bistro effect. It used to be a pleasure to take visitors there but now i avoid it like the plague- it has the atmosphere of a food race at the local football... More

We are staying in Sydney and has some free time so we took the ferry over to Watsons Bay Wharf. We arrived early so we took the walk and saw the beach and the lighthouse. Everyone says if you go to Watsons Bay you go to the Doyles. We didn't think that it was worth it to pay $41 AUD... More

I'm not wasting my time on giving this disgrace of a food establishment publicity. The food was inedible to the point four of us left it. The chips were stale, the calamari was frozen and like hard rubber cooked in what tasted like week old oil. Intact that's all the whole meal tasted of. This kind of food shows contempt... More

Calamari was rubbery and tasteless, chips tasted like they had been frozen, very, very poor, would not recommend.

The last time I was in Sydney, 25 years ago, I visited Doyle's on Watsons Bay and loved the place. I recently visited for a second time and highly recommend it. On a sunny beach day, take a ferry to Watson's Bay (about 15 minutes from Circular Quay). You can walk the southern head of the entrance to Sydney Harbor,... More

An absolute must each time we visit Sydney is a trip on the ferry across to Watsons Bay to enjoy the best fish and chips in Australia! Freshly cooked they are simply scrumptious. A very poplular place no matter what time of year you visit Sydney - and often its extremely hard to find a seat - we found the... More

The venue is idyllic, right on the waterfront with a view across the bay and the skyline of Sydney on the horizon. It does not get any better than this! The weather was bright and hot and we sat outside under the awning ideal for fish and wine! The menu is impressive. A nice touch is that each menu is... More

On a day around Sydney we ended up here for lunch and we're not disappointed. We had asked for someplace local and this is where we needed up. The place is busy but well staffed with an excellent food and beverage menu. The fish and chips were excellent, the soft shell crab sliders were very well done, and their salads... More
