Staff were delightful and accommodating. Asked for seafood platter gluten free and they were more than willing to make changes to suit my dietary requirements. Was the best seafood platter we've had in years. Will definitely come back on our next visit to Port Lincoln. Thank you Sarins for a wonderful experience!

We had the pleasure of dining in Sarins Bar & Restaurant with family from overseas. The service was ok. As they provide table service for meals and drinks we found it disappointing that one of our guests did not receive their drink.

I stayed in Port Lincoln Hotel and hence chose to eat at Sairins. The food choice and quality is good, nice environment and professionally trained staff. Booking is recommended to play safe as they can be full on several days a week, especially as wedding would also be organised there. I like this chowder soup with abalone and fish.

Fishy indeed, in beautiful Port Lincoln. The food - 3 to 4 stars. Ok 4. My entree was 3 - the abalone soup - the only abalone on the menu, which was a disappointment. The next course which was a mixture of fish, shells too was brilliant and this redeemed the entree. The service was excellent. Our chief waiter was... More

I ate here with my partner. The food was far worse than the price tag justified. Pork scotch fillet was tasty, but not world changing - however the gnocchi was simply disgusting, in a thin, bland, overly garlic-y, incredibly watery sauce. The waitress was very pleasant, and possibly a bit out of her depth. She noted that my partner had... More

Not the cheapest meal, but we were prepared to pay for the Seafood Platter for two. It was most enjoyable - only criticism would be too much Salt and Pepper Squid. The waitress was lovely and the platter arrived promptly. Pleasant surroundings and a choice of seating from tables to booths. Can recommend.

We enjoyed the full Buffet breakfast at Sarins while staying at the Port Lincoln Hotel.

I visited Sarin's for a drink after a long day. I really needed staff to care about my needs - but they are just trying to get through to the next guest and didn't even spare a kind word as I placed my order.
