relaxing with beautiful view

We had lunch at Doyles and the meal was delicious. The fish was so fresh as were the oysters. Couldnt get better the day we were there. Staff were friendly and the service was good. A little bit on the pricey side. They do give you a stubbie holder if you have one of their beers!!

We have been lunching here for many years. Usually a anniversary or special occasion. The food has always been top quality and the atmosphere is so relaxing, especially a waterside seat. I would highly recommend the garlic prawns, they have been consistently good for years. We normally go on a Friday for lunch but our last visit was on a... More

Tour group went for lunch at Doyle's . Staff were polite but I wouldn't say they were friendly. As we had a set meal , there was no choice. It was garlic bread as an entree followed by fish and chips only. There was plenty to eat - rather too much for me. Sweets were served , alternate drop ,... More

Amazing food and service. We went as a family of four and had a seafood platter for three which was more than ample food. The view is to die for and the food equalled.

We bought a friend here for lunch! It's one of those places, that one has to experience, so we understand. The location is fantastic, as we approached we could see a lot of empty tables at the front. Then a "Q" mechanic, to the left if you have booked, to the right of you haven't. We hadn't. So we were... More

I cannot think that there's a restaurant anywhere in Australia that serves better fish and chips - or anywhere else on the planet. Highly recommended.

This is my favourite place (probably) in the world. It is made all the better by the amazing food. It is not the cheapest however worth the money. Have eaten both lunch and evening and really can't fault it, staff are attentive but not over bearing. It's a must...

Famous and assured restaurant. If you like seafood, you'll love it. If not, you're stuck because there's no non-seafood alternative. Beautiful setting and fabulous.

A friend of ours had been to Doyles years before and had often told us about the great meal and dining experience he had had in this restaurant. As soon as we booked this trip from the UK we booked a table for dinner on the waterfront here. We were not disappointed. It was a lovely warm summers evening, we... More
