Watson’s Bay: An experience at the famous Doyles on the Beach

One of the most iconic restaurants in Sydney, Doyle’s on the Beach in Watson’s Bay. This incredible seafood restaurant has been family operated for over five generations and their famous fish and chips is on just about every Sydneysider’s bucket list.

It isn’t just the food that makes this place incredible, it is the suburb view over Sydney City and the harbour.

The restaurant, located on the beach at Watson’s Bay is in the perfect location. Easily accessibly by ferry from Circular Quay or by car with parking available free of charge to patrons.

We were lucky enough to get one of the best seats in the house, on the upstairs balcony.  It felt more like a private dining experience!


The staff were efficient and super friendly and the food came out pretty quickly as well. Jenna ordered the famous fish (flathead) and chips and I ordered the Lobster Mornay of course with a fig salad on the side!  Now, I am sure the lobster should have been a sharing dish… but I managed to get through it myself!

With no room to spare, it was dessert time… But we couldn’t leave without trying their Crème brûlée and Sticky Date Pudding…. The portions were massive so needless to say we didn’t finish it all, but the half we did have was delicious!!
