We always enjoy a meal at Doyles. Start with the salt and pepper calamari (or stuffed jumbo prawns) and then the whiting fillets. Wash that down with a Doyle's fisherman's lager or a bottle of the Doyles family chardonnay for a great dining experience.

We came for a very-late off-hours lunch. The first problem was that we were waiting at the to-be-seated sign and it took a surprisingly long time and numerous staff ignoring us before our existence was acknowledged. We finally got a seat downstairs with a decent...More

Personally I prefer outside but have only been for lunch. Tell them it is your anniversary & I am sure they will help. If inside try upstairs you might get more of a view if you are near a window
