Prawn cocktail was OK nothing special but the Tuna rare with Wasabi mash was incredible. Huge portion, very well cooked and impressed with the seasonal vegetables that we ordered as an extra. Great choice. Excellent location. The Rose was exceptional.

Doyle has been an icon for a long time. We had a reserved table on the outside terrace with a lovely view. Service was very friendly. The (sea) food was delicious with fresh oystera, snapper, swordfish and a lovely Riesling to accompany.

They will kick you out if you show in between lunch or dinner. Food Ok but expensive. Go only for lunch or dinner. If you show up in the afternoon service bad. They start setting the tables for the dinner time.

Definately long pants and jacket would be appropriate. It is next door to watsons bay night venue and therefore dress standard would ensure your entry on such a busy evening.

Personally I prefer outside but have only been for lunch. Tell them it is your anniversary & I am sure they will help. If inside try upstairs you might get more of a view if you are near a window
