This has been the best seafood feast I've ever had. The service was top notch and we were super lucky with being seated in the front, facing the water. If I had a complaint it would only be about my food envy for my partners food! It all looked amazing! This place has created a special memory. Thank you to all the staff at Doyle's for a wonderful experience.
This place came highly recommended by multiple people to us when we were visiting Sydney and I'm very glad we went. We took a ferry from the harbor by the Opera House, which was a nice little ride. When we reached the restaurant about 15-20 minutes later, they were really busy, but the wait was not long and the greeters were very attentive. They ended up seating us upstairs where we had a beautiful view of the beach with wide open doors, it was nice and breezy, and most importantly, it was calm and quiet compared to downstairs where there was a family having a birthday party and it was a bit more lively. Our server was a friendly guy from London who made great recommendations and was very attentive. The owner even paid our table a visit, told us about the history of this family owned restaurant (that the nice room we were in used to be her living room growing up), and made great conversation. Plus, the food and drinks were delicious. I only managed to take these dessert pics and a picture of the dock, but trust me, if you like seafood, you'll love Doyle's. If you can catch a ferry out there, I highly recommend it!
First off, I am not big into seafood. But when I am near the ocean and at a restaurant known for it's seafood I will go with the crowd. Quoting another review "if you visit San Francisco, you dine at Fisherman's Wharf; if you visit Sydney you dine at Doyles on the Beach." Fantastic experience. If staying in Sydney recommend a sunset water taxi and dinner there.
Overly expensive for what you get, with an additional 10% surcharge on weekends that you don't normally see any more. Waiting for a table was outside in the wind as well, no bread unless you order it extra. Really the only plus was the location but I've had much better experiences and locations. On the plus side the food was very nice and the view is excellent, walking around after lunch is definitely the best part at this unique area.
