There is a wide selection from oysters, fish, prawns and crayfish to choose from and their platters are a very good selection of seafood to test your taste-buds. Children are welcome and... More

We had reserved a table for 5.30, when Doyle's reopens for dinner, but arrived 15 minutes early and were not allowed to sit and wait. Bad start. When we returned we stood in a growing line while the receptionist chatted excessively to another customer. Hmm, have we made the right decision. Finally seated we enjoyed good food: a whole snapper... More

Travelling out to Watsons Bay for the first time by ferry was a treat in its own right. A great opportunity to see more of Sydney Harbour. Doyle's location right on the beach was perfect with a great view out over the water from our table. Our seafood lunch with starters was excellent and very tasty. Oysters, massive prawns, fish...

Very average today. Meals were luke warm. Service was slow. Atmosphere non existent. Dont think i will be back in a hurry. A historical place that is missing the love.

This was to be a farewell and thank you Lunch to my friend who was leaving to fly to Abu Dhabi that evening. I decided to find a table at the beachside rather than on the wharf as it was a special occasion and we ordered a beer before we chose. We had fresh prawns and barramundi for 3 days... More
