My brother and his partner were staying with us over Easter, and my daughter with her 3 kids. We have been to the Kalimna Hotel before when the previous owner owned it, then it had a great atmosphere great food and at a good price, the place then was packed with people. This time how ever there was not very... More

We went as a family for a meal over the Easter weekend. It was a great night with awesome food. My hubby had steak which was super tender and perfectly cooked. I had the vegetable lasagna which was beautiful. It was super big and I was lucky the chef allowed me to take the rest home which I had for... More

It took more than 40 minutes from the time of ordering for our meals to arrive, and that was only after going back up to the counter to see what was happening. When they did arrive they were fairly average. My parma was tasty, but fairly small given the $24 price, while my dad's veal cutlet was pretty ordinary. The... More

Out for lunch for a family event not only where the prices a joke for what was served ($18 for a burger and six greasy chips $20 for a third breast fillet Parma and schnitzel,tiny) but it was all over cooked if not burnt.

Having decided to have an evening meal out where we could enjoy the views of the lakes and ocean we were extremely disappointed with the lack of service provided by the staff on duty. We felt ignored even though we could see that others were enjoying their meals in the dining room. After waiting for 15 minutes we left.

My wife and I called in for Dinner. No one greeted us . Someone at the bar pointed to a table. I had to get a menu from the rack. Went to the bar to order a carafe of wine, and was given one glass. No-one came to the table. We decided that if the service was a guide to... More

Few will be able to match this location simply for its views, but add simple, tasty meals at reasonable prices, and you have a recipe for success. Orders were taken and paid for at the bar, it didn’t take long for them to be served to the table. It was good to see the sauces for schnitzels, of which there... More

Typical pub menu though food disappointed last visit after several good meals in the prior month. Food portion was small on a busy night, food was not as hot as it should have been, unable to order coffee as run out of milk again.

We went to the Kalimna Hotel hotel for dinner on a pleasant Wednesday evening in late January. Expecting to enjoy an experience reminiscent of a few years ago, we were sadly disappointed. The Kalimna was once a vibrant hub of Lakes Entrance but our visit did not live up this expectation. Whilst the service was friendly and the food was... More
