Doyles on the Wharf Take Away/Bistro

Doyles on the Beach is an institution in Watson Bay. Located seconds from the sand and water, this weatherboard building has plenty of rustic charm. Originally opened on this site in 1885, Doyles is full of character and history. The menu contains classic fish and chips choices, and more complex seafood dishes. Ask the staff for any chef's specials. Similar to the tourists, celebrities and locals, you too will come to love this family-operated restaurant that has spanned five generations. If you are travelling to Watsons Bay, why not catch the ferry and enjoy the view?

A great day out to catch the ferry to Watson's bay and have fish'n'chips on the foreshore. Doyle's was very popular with people lining up as soon as they hopped off the ferry. The servings were generous and the fish was very fresh and very tasty! Loved the plum sauce!

Aside from having to navigate the fearless seagulls even from inside the restuarant, this place is a Watsons Bay institution not to be missed. The restuarant is themed on a typical British seaside chip shop and that is exactly what they serve...great fish and chips. Getting the ferry over to Watsons Bay and having fish and chips on the wharf at Doyle's is a day well spent! The food is as fresh as the ocean breeze and you can sit outside whilst enjoying both with a view. The staff were really nice and everything was clean.

On a cold wintery day, we headed to Watson’s Bay, nostalgic for summer weather and a scrumptious selection of seafood at Doyle’s on the Beach!

We opted for two mains rather than starters, and got the Doyle’s Selection, which included portions of blue swimmer crab, in house smoked salmon, salt & pepper calamari, natural oyster and golden fried fish fillet with a stuffed jumbo prawn and chips. This was a great pick, as we got to try a bit of every piece of seafood on offer, and it led us to discover what we enjoyed and what wasn’t so good. My highlight was the blue swimmer crab, which was fresh and lightly cooked, ...read more
