Beautiful Saturday afternoon in the sunshine right by the water with very tasty serve of fresh fish and chips. The fish just melted in the mouth and was actually two large pieces with a very generous serve of chips. Was a little strange that it was served with a chili plum sauce rather than the traditional tartare as it didn't... More

We did the cheap option and grabbed takeaway eating it in the park overlooking Watsons Bay. Being a Sunday and fine weather it was very busy. The food was average but the location and weather were excellent.

I used to live almost across the road from Doyles and like to visit when I am in Sydney. Bought a seafood basket and seafood chowder to share. Didn't get any of the seafood chowder, my partner scoffed the lot. Usually I get a taste at least.

We tried this spot as a less expensive option for a quick lunch. The ordering is a little tricky and getting a good table overlooking the water requires patience. But its all worth the effort. Wonderful fresh oysters, OK chips and nicely battered but unspectacular fish plus reasonably priced bottle of "Doyles House" chardonnay. The location right on the water... More

As we went to Watsons Bay at lunchtime we had to try the famous Doyles fish & chips, with at least 50 other visitors. The set up was first class and the food was not half bad too, at a reasonable price, in a lovely covered area fully licenced

They are so busy and do such a good trade, yet their quality doesn't slip. Beautiful fish, calamari and chips. We will definitely go back when we are next in town.

The line are always long. Service are slow. Been there few times, always the same. The front counter take the order slow, foods serve slow. But is a nice place to eat especially when it's sunny. Take away from them, go to the park or beach, take a seat and enjoy the taste of seafoods. Foods are always fresh. So... More

Nothing worse than soggy chips, unless it's oily soggy fish to accompany them. The view is fantastic, the staff are efficient and friendly. Despite having lovely food here a year ago today was very disappointing, appalling food. Even my children didn't eat the chips they were so bad. There was one bright spark, the seafood chowder, which was delicious.

Take the leisurely ferry journey from Circular Quay across magic Sydney Harbour to Watsons Bay then get take-away fish and chips from Doyle's, relax on the pier and enjoy million dollar views for a couple of bucks ! For under $20.00 (cash only mind)you can get a delicious serve of hot fish and chips and a can of soft drink,... More
