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

we've been there today for lunch! Food was amazing, we tried the seafood salad and the seafood basket! Everything's great! Fresh fish and beautiful view from the venue! We'll be back!

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

My wife and used to have fond memories of this restaurant. On the harbour, casual atmosphere, good reliable fayre and service. We've not been for over a year and went there again with other family members at the end of June. Oh dear. The famous Doyles brand and the famous high quality and good value fish and chips has been... More

I've long been a fan of Doyles on the beach, but of course you almost always need a reservation and eating there also comes with a certain price tag. Doyles on the Wharf sits at a much lower price point, you can eat in or takeaway and if you do eat in there is a fully licensed bar with a... More

After getting down from the Watson ferry, we would queue at Doyle's for a takeaway lunch of seafood platter, which was large enough to share between two of us. The price was reasonable, the fish and chips, calamari etc were nice and we have been here 3 times already. Like Watson bay and the Gap lookout, this is one of... More

Second time we have visited Doyles on the Wharf. We visited on a beautiful, sunny Sunday for lunch, so the place was busy and the suggested 20 min wait, was probably more like 40 mins. Servings are huge, everything was fresh and we had a lovely view of Watson's Bay. Considering the suburb we were eating in, the pricing is... More

Always a special spot to sit and enjoy every couple of months. Nicely cooked seafood in a special location attended to by a pleasant team. Don't come with your appraisal books though looking to compare with the world's best seafood spots. It's not what this fine place is about. Doyles is a place to enjoy fresh, nicely prepared seafood overlooking... More
