Went out with family on a trip around Sydney. Took in all sorts of sights and ended up in Watsons Bay. Pity for the rain but we still enjoyed ourselves. Chose to eat fish and chips at Doyle's on the wharf. We enjoyed it very much and there was plenty on the plate. Seagulls around which was a pleasure to... More

Generous serves and well cooked. We enjoyed the Fishermans basket and was plenty for two. Good selection of seafood but make sure you have cash to pay as no credit cards

On a nice sunny Sunday afternoon and an iconic location,I was looking forward to some good fish and chips to share with overseas visitors.didn't happen. Despite a long queue the orders were processed very quickly,but it's a cash only situation. All 5 of us were complaining of upset stomachs later. Fish was very average,calamari very rubbery,chips ok. Think I might... More

It was 20 odd years ago since I had fish and chips at Watson Bay wharfe and I was completely disappointed. The fish and chips package was expensive for soggy fish and ordinary chips. The plum sauce not worth trying. Half of it went straight in the bin uneaten. I wouldn't recommend this takeaway option to anyone getting off the... More

We chose the standard fish and chips (fish not specified!). Service was quite quick considering the queue. Fish was cooked nicely, with crispy batter which was very light and not fatty. Chips were good too. There is plenty of seating around the back of the counter (jetty side) or you can sit on benches under the trees on the edge... More

Slightly disappointing given its reputation. Decent size portions and good value for money but I have had many better quality fish & chips than this.

Doles is the long-standing Family business on the Quay at Watson's Bay. Excellent fish and chips can be enjoyed in a most pleasant location. No wonder this has lasted so long as a business. Thank you.

This restaurant is frequented by tourists so they don't make any effort. Worse fish and chips I've had in years. The batter was hard and dry. The fish was dripping oil and the chips were all the ends of the potato. The longest chip was one inch long. My companion wrote a very non aggressive email to Doyle's explaining his... More
