“Great view with fish and chips”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2011

Watson's Bay has a fantastic view of both Sydney and the Gap. We also enjoyed Michael Doyle's Fish and Chips on the Watson's Bay jetty.

“great place to spend a day”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2011

Took in Watson's Bay on a sunny Sunday afternoon, just wandered around the area and had fish and chips at Doyles. It was a fantastic way to spend the day and look back at downtown Sydney and fish and chips at Doyles is excellent!!

“Get there early”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2011

Parking is limited so if it's a sunny day get there early or be prepared to have major difficulty parking. Cliff walk is good way to get great views of the heads and coastline. Then head to Doyle's grab fish and chips and eat them on the beach or in the park.
