Maybe I was expecting too much. But when you say "Doyles", you think of crispy battered fish and crunchy chips (well I do anyway). Our group of 7 had soggy chips, rubbery fish and complementary sweet chilli sauce (though tartare would have been more appropriate). Servers were busy, looked tired and not engaging with their paying customers at all. I... More

You can't go to Watson's Bay and not try the fish and chips at Doyles. The fish is so fresh and great tasting. Don't be put off by the queues as they have a great service to get you through quickly. You can book seating at there restaurants. There is seating throughout the park to eat your food or take... More

After a very pleasant ferry ride from Circular Quay my daughter and I had a most enjoyable lunch from Doyles. We had fish and chips that were extremely well priced, sitting under a very large leafy tree in the park adjacent to the shed. Perfect on a 32 degree day!. This is a well set up little business. Queue, order... More

Great to be able to enjoy Doyles' excellent fish and chips sitting down on the pier watching the world go by. Food was tasty, piping hot and freshly cooked. They've got the formula just right and everyone was happy queuing for their food and having the option to take away or eat at the Wharf tables. A must for anyone... More

It's great that you can eat at Doyle's cheaper waterfront cafe ifyou are not up for the expense of its flagship restaurant. Surprisingly, you can sit in the comfort of the wharf side cafe and eat your fish and chips. You can also get a drink at their bar as long as you have ordered food. It's one of those... More

What better way to spend New Years Day but cruising Sydney Harbour on a glorious summer day on a fast ferry to Watson's Bay. We arrived just after midday and although there was quite a long queue for take away, the system they had in place meant that the order line moved fast and minimal time spent waiting on your...

Still run by the famous Doyles family, this take-away restaurant is a much cheaper alternative to the real Dpyles on the Beach (although still a bit pricey). Good seating in the restaurant with nice views over the bay and back to the harbour bridge. Nice coffee at the bar and good place to relax before you go for a walk... More

I just grabbed a half dozen natural oysters takeaway. They were so well priced! Only $13.50. They were fresh and amazing, the pacific oysters were my favourite. Would recommend the Doyle's takeaway for seafood and to have a nice sit on the beach whilst enjoying the view. I did go to the restaurant however the staff were incredibly rude so... More
