The food is so tasty, there are bathrooms, a bar to order drinks, tons of water front tables, lots to look at, inside and outside tables and takeaway with benches and grass and sand as many choices to sit and eat your great food.

They do a raoring trade adn for good reason. A very high standard of fish and chips. Not the best you'll ever have but pretty good. They only take cash but there is an ATM at the nearby hotel if you need it.

I have had take away from here on countless occasions over the years & I have to say that it varies from excellent to disappointing. This time was disappointing. I ordered fish & chips & it was served in about 3 minutes. Obviously not cooked to order. It was only just hot enough & while the fish itself was nicely... More

Been here a few times over the years and it never disappoints. Lovely fresh fish. Seafood basket is very good value. The location is of course stunning. Great way to start an afternoon of walking around Watson bay. Only point to raise is they are cash only. We live in the electronic world of PayPass it's time to accept cards... More

Can't believe a significant attraction, doing so much business in a city like Sydney is CASH ONLY in 2017. Over that first hurdle and a decision to 'eat in', only to discover this only meant bring your purchased take-away to a table. We considered a calming glass of red from the bar...still CASH ONLY!! and stuck with our bottle of... More

Not ever having been to Doyle's (wharf or otherwise) I had heard great things. We ordered the seafood basket, and whilst there was plenty of it, the food was luke warm, over cooked and definitely not fresh. The fish piece was ok and the chips were ok. I wasn't expecting fine dining from the take away but I was expecting... More

This cafe is a fabulous place to take the family. Join the queue to place your order which is attended to very efficiently. We went there Good Friday and we're pleasantly surprised at how quickly we received our order despite the hoards of tourists. The seafood is fresh, delicious and beautifully cooked. Eat in the indoor seating area which has... More

This is a bit of an institution so worth going to and Watson's Bay area is lovely. The takeaway system was efficient and quick and the fish and chips were good. The seagulls are constantly being fed by idiots who are ignorant to wildlife needs and do not realise also that gulls and dining do not make for a happy... More

After a walk on Manly beach side, we hop to Watson Bay for another sight seeing. We ordered a Seafood Basket cost us $18.80. The serving is large enough for 2 persons. Taste okay,... More
