As a couple who do not live in Sydney we have made Doyles on the Beach a regular event over many trips. The ferry trip from Circular Quay was the best thing about our last visit on the weekend.
After having our online reservation confirmed by email we then had to follow up a phone call we received to confirm our reservation? On arrival we were seated at a lovely seat right up the front but somehow between our drinks being served we were left to our own devices for over half an hour before catching the attention of the waitress.
The dozen Oysters Kilpatrick and Mornay we ordered to share arrived luke warm and without the standard small fork and spoon that usually accompanies any oyster dish. The main courses of Signature Jumbo Prawns and Asian Style Scallops also arrived barely warm as did the Snapper and Prawn Pie.
Two guys who were clearly tourists judging by the luggage they had were seated at the table next to us when we arrived and left without taking a second mouthful of either meal they were served.
Far too many other choices are out there now for Doyles to rest on their laurels. We won't be back.
