But please do not call the PAELLA their deplorable white rice with tomato sauce a creation. The traditional only Spanish Paella has Safran, Spanish rice , sea food and meat all cooked at once on a flat round paellera to make sure it is all fry, cooked and reduced at once ... do not call your special boiled white rice...

Took the Sydney Ferries to Watsons Bay. Lovely way to view the city. Doyle's at Watsons Bay is a must. We had grilled barramundi with chips and salad and tempura whiting with chips and salad. All very tasty. If you don't fancy fish and chips they do beautiful seafood salads too - we just fancied the less healthy option although... More

If it is a quick fish and chip takeaway that you are looking for, then look no further. Located right beside the jetty, it is a perfect stopping point for all. All food is freshly cooked and served in a convenient takeaway container.

Serving fresh sea food warm and not properly prepared and not stored correctly , resulting in food poisoning . Let's say not the place to eat unless you fancy a trip to the local hospital or even worse the morgue . Avoid like the plague .

Well worth a visit here, if only to see all the fresh fish. A great fish market, we had lunch here and was reasonable for what we had. A platter of fresh cooked seafood, including lobster,scallops,prawns and white fish which was superb and the atmosphere of a very busy fish market and restaurants was worth the long walk

I was there 40 years ago and many times since then. The quality is excellent, their oaky Chardonnay very good and the service wonderfully friendly. Try to get a table right at the water front with spectacular views towards Sydney

We caught the ferry from Circular Quay to Watsons Bay, on our way to the Bondi Beach to Coogee Coastal Walk (reviewed also). Upon departing the ferry, we walked along the wharf and found Doyle's Fisherman's Wharf seafood takeaway/restaurant. We ordered lunch at the takeaway and they provide tables and seats on the wharf under cover for your use. The... More

Perfect location, adjacent to beach and to ferrystop. Menu presents attractive range of seafood options. Staff amiable but disorganised. Fish was thin,dry, over cooked. Chips slightly better. Disappointing . . . let's hope effort put into restoring historic high standards.

Nice place to wait before you go to the ferry. Very nice cold Fischer with avocado and combined plates for two. Nuggets for kids were a bit dry. No card accepted, only cash.
