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. It is a smaller selection then some of the big hotel chains but more than adequate and includes gluten free options. Staff are helpful and friendly. The ambience is typical waterside with an open section from where to enjoy an outdoor experience. The A la... More

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. I requested some crisps to counter the alcoholic drink but they don't serve crisps in this... More

We had a nice meal. Nothing out of the ordinary, and pretty expensive. $180 with entrees and wine for two. I'm interested to see what can be done when the new chef arrives shortly.

Wanted a restaurant with water views on our first night here so chose this one as it was a short walk from our accommodation.

What a shame! The greater Port Lincoln region produces fresh world class seafood. BUT only some of its on the menu and it's terrible, more so the prices. You really wonder if the seafood is sourced from Lincoln or maybe the restaurant gets their budget squid and fish from the supermarket freezer. Well worth avoiding if you know your seafood... More

The food quality was very good and the service and staff are very helpful and friendly. The restaurant has a nice ambience to it although the price of drinks were a little more expensive than other places around town. Totally recommend Sarins for a meal and a few drinks.
