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.

What a great little find! Awesome pub food, great atmosphere and fantastic view over the water. We were very happy with our meals and stayed around to play some pool and darts too. Worth the visit!

I ordered a chicken parma. I don't no how the messed this up so bad! The chicken was processed and rubbery, the crumbs were burnt to a crisp and the ham, well lets just say it didn't taste like ham. The other meals my friends received were also average. Very dissapointing!

Kalimna used to be a brilliant pub. Not so much any more. The last two times I visited the food was burnt and the service was slow. Really sad, because I used to love it!!!. Hopefully they will improve.
