Its our local fish and chip shop - with the luxury of sitting in the restaurant behind and having a glass of wine - right above the water - or sitting on the beach at watsons bay. Always friendly service - always fresh food. the prawn rolls are a favourite.

We had checked things to do for our holiday in Sydney and the only one on our list to let us down was Doyles at Watson's Bay. We were seated by someone who did not seem to care whether we ate at Doyles or somewhere else. One of our meals was delivered to the table long before the other three of us received ours, meaning the one with the meal had to decide whether to eat alone or allow her food to go cold - she was caught between the two. My daughter's side order never arrived despite my reminding the waiter twice and when we paid and complained, we were told it would be removed from the bill as if we should be grateful. When we went to the restaurant, we knew the prices were higher than the usual fish restaurant but we were a little surprised that the food and service were not much better. Overall we were very disappointed, particularly as it was a family treat. On my return to the United Kingdom, I wrote a complaint to Doyles and am still waiting for a response after nearly 5 weeks. It will not be on our list of things to do when we next visit Sydney.

What a pity the fish and chips are so unappetising. Greasy and strictly for tourists. Go to the pub or one of the lovely local cafes instead.

Good honesty chippy with plenty of fish choices. Nice if you can sit in the back but eating on a park bench a good second choice.

If you're visiting Sydney, or even if you're a resident, this restaurant should not be missed. Easily accessible on a short ferry ride from Circular Quay in central Sydney, it's on the beach at Watson's Bay, which is also a great area for walking and exploring. The seafood is as fresh as you'll get, with a good wine list to complement the food. It's a perfect place for a laid back Sunday lunch, and if you have kids, ask for a promenade table - they overlook the beach and the kids can play in the sand while you enjoy a chilled beer or glass of wine. Better at lunch than dinner, in my view, because of the lovely scenery that you'd miss at night. Enjoy!
