Where do I start? Was not impressed right from the beginning! The hostess was not pleasant when we asked about a table by the beach. We came for the fish and chips! Shockingly the $48 price took my breath away! For some unknown reason we...More

Doyles was as good as we hoped for. It was expensive, but we expected that, although not the extra 10% for weekends. The food was wonderful and the view was amazing. The staff were friendly and helpful.

Doyles is a great place we have been going to for decades. Located on the water at Watson's Bay, you can get there by road, ferry, water taxi or private vessel. The menu had changed little, apart from the prices. They have a good wine...More

This is a good spot for a good-value lunch. My husband had an all-day breakfast, my friend had smashed avocado on sourdough bread and I had mackerel bruschetta. All meals were delicious.

If you want to taste great Australian seafood whilst looking out at the Sydney harbour then this is the place to go. On a sunny day this is a little slice of heaven. Book a table way in advance if possible. There is a small...More

Lovely fish restaurant with great views. We have always heard that they do the best fish and chips and were disappointed. We had the snapper and the batter was hard and overcooked very dark in colour. The chips were hard and seemed as if they...More

Definately long pants and jacket would be appropriate. It is next door to watsons bay night venue and therefore dress standard would ensure your entry on such a busy evening.

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
