Before we left for our trip to Sydney 4 separate friends told us visit Doyles. We were not disappointed. The fish platter washed down with a bottle of Sancerre looked as good as it tasted. Our table outside overlooked the beach and we had an idyllic unhurried lunch. The desserts looked gorgeous too but we were much too full to sample them

You should definitely go to the restaurant on the beach at Watsons Bay on a sunny, warm winters afternoon. The fish was very fresh and beautifully cooked. Not much in atmosphere but the view at the table outside was peaceful and entertaining. A good place to go when in Sydney

I took my partner here for his birthday as he had talked about always wanting to go. We had amazing scallops for an entrée and fish and chips for mains the food was as good as the view.
It gets very busy so always book although they seem to happily accommodate those who just show up if they are happy to wait.

Staying with friends in Sydney we decided to take our guidebook's recommendation and treat ourselves to a night out at Doyles Restaurant. Whilst the staff were friendly and the food was fine, we came away feeling thoroughly ripped off. My husband had a nice chowder as a starter and asked for some bread to go with it - they appeared surprised and confused and then charged him $7.50 for it. The rest of the meal was on the expensive side, (there wasn't a bottle of wine under $50) but the real stinger was the 10% weekend supplement - why should it cost more at the weekend?! Saturday night is not an unusual night to go out and it is not as if they were turning people away.
