Great pub lunch

Really enjoyed a relaxing pub lunch with the kids. Very generous serving of a basic but enjoyable pub meal at a reasonable price.

We only called in for a drink, the service was friendly and the view beautiful. A welcome rest after a long walk.

When Lance reopened the pub what a breath of fresh air for a good pub in Lakes. Meals were outstanding and the service was spot on. Lance had a spell for a while and that's when it went downhill big time. Fortunately Lance is back and as mine host he is exceptional. Alas, he must have lost the original chefs... More

Can't comment on food or service because we only went for a beer. Spectacular views made the beer taste even better.We were the only people there at 6pm on a Sunday

It's taken 2 hours for the kids meals to come out, the entree's too. It's now 8.15 and half of our meals have come, 3 steaks come out over and the flake raw!!! The flathead tails were $28, really oily with generic oven chips and bland sauce. My cousins 21st was ruined :(

This place has been around for a while, but its back with the same great location with views across the lakes system and with a good wide ranging menu at very reasonable prices. Its pub food but good pub food, the bar is well stocked and even has relaxing chairs to use after your meal. It serves good lunches too.... More

This place used to be spot on for a good meal, but after my last visit I was left utterly devastated. The worst meal I have had in a long time... May I ask what went wrong? New chef perhaps ? The best part of my meal was the chips which were Mcain quick frys, complements to MCain for making... More

We went here with a few hesitations after reading the reviews. However we were greatly suprised with the welcoming reception we received. Steak was perfect, pepper sauce fantastic, kids nuggets were home made and delicious, schnitzel was tasty. Decor could be improved but it's a pub! We Would definataly return.

Unfortunately, the meals we had at Kalimna Hotel were way below par. Kids meal was oily and unappetising, parmagiana was overcooked, salmon was sitting by itself on oily chips beside a ho-hum salad, no type of dressing/sauce for the fish at all. A most disappointing experience, not even mentioning the high prices for such low quality fare. And the bar... More

I travelled to Lakes Entrance for a special CFA event that I was privileged to attend. I secured accommodation at Kalimna Hotel as most Hotels were pretty much booked due to this event. I was impressed with the location as the Kalimna Hotel was situated overlooking the lake & the view was lovely. The accommodation was set alongside the main... More
