Don't try the battered Barramundi tastes dry and small portion for the price $19. Chips mushy. Try somewhere else

Don't expect too much however, great location ... Doyle's seems to own Most of the food venues around watson's bay so there is little other choice fir fish and chips... Pity

We had the best fish and chips we have ever had here. Very rustic restaurant, its just a walk up and you order and when you get your food, you go around and find an open table behind the restaurant. There is a bar for drinks. Simple and great!

We have visited Doyles a few times over the past few years. Its always crowded, there is always a search for a place to sit and there is always people searching for somewhere to sit. So relaxing dining it is not!! And Doyles Restaurant is nearby so there is a choice. We didn't wait long for the fish and chips,... More

Doyles fish and chip has a reputation. I had fond memories of its famous fish and chips over the years. I revisited it again yesterday and the experience is very disappointing. Its fish was soggy and tasted fishy. one of the worst fish and chips I have ever had.

Went with friends and thought we would have a bite for lunch. Problem I found was the fish and chips are put in a takeaway box and kept till the full order is complete (we were 5) and as a result the fish and chips were soggy.

Fish and chips and a prawn salad in the sun on a sunday afternoon...nothing could be better!! This place is cheap, quick and the quality is outstanding. I don't know why you would go to the restaurant and pay two or three times as much for the same food.......its highly recommended

Yes it has masses of people and you have to queue to pay and queue for the food and it takes ages. It is a busy place but we find the fish and chips simple but good although when we visited before it was a different system I think

We were going to try the fish and chips to see if they had improved from our last visit a year or so ago. We were shocked to discover that you now have to order from the front counter. There was a long line in the mid-day sun and it was a hot day. The line was slow moving, and... More
