“Excellent Seafood”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2014

The fisherman platter that we order was amazed me, we had lots of seafood and all looks yummy. Before going to the restaurant, we are supposed to have a take away but the quequeing was too long and we are too hungry to queque. Well, we also have little queque at the restaurant, but it just worthed for it.. When the Seafood come, we are drooling.. food was excellent, service was great, and the waiter gave some good recommend.. The best food when i was in Sydney.. Reccomended!!

“Overpriced and Average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2014

For a Friday night, I was shocked to see the restaurant almost empty. After all seven of us decided the meal was just average, and nearly falling over after receiving the bill (no wine or deserts) it made sense there were few tables taken. This is a restaurant with a fabulous reputation over so many years. What happened? Why so expensive?...........Never again.

“A must visit when in Sydney”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2014

Doyles is a must visit for anyone loving a panoramic view and fine fresh sea food. The ambience of the restaurant is fantastic. The menu is very well put together and the staff are very friendly. With small children with us they were very accommodating as I know what a nuisance they can be in restaurant. The price definitely justifies the quality of the food.

“It's got it all!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2014 via mobile

Staying in Sydney, last Friday the 21st of February we took the 11 40 Watsons Bay ferry, perfect timing, despite not making a booking we managed to get a wonderful table just off the beach. We had a delicious meal, Barramundi for him Snapper for me, an excellent bottle of wine accompanied it. The service was lovely the desert and coffee finished ff a very special meal. Not cheap I agree but the venue is worth the money. Take a walk up to the Gap afterwards to work of a few calories. :-0)

“Beautiful spot, lovely food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2014

We made reservations before our visit to Sydney so we could ensure a lovely table on the water for lunch. We enjoyed the ferry ride on a beautiful afternoon, and celebrated with a lovely bottle of wine with lunch. Just wonderfu!
