Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Well stepping in to this old pub is such a pleasure now with its new bright airy atmosphere. So different from the old decor. And the food is to match. Although the menu is not huge the specials board always has 3-5 good choices. I choose the grilled pork cutlet with mash and broccolini with homemade apple sauce and gravy. This was delicious. Although I don’t normally eat apple sauce this tasted good too. I ate every scrap of my food. My partner had the rib on the bone. Normally this is thicker but the steak was cooked perfectly and very tender. This came with salad and a whole potato with sour cream and bacon and your choice of sauces. There are about 8 choices in the sauces. Meals came to $60. Accompanied with a $28 of sav Blanc. All the meals coming from the kitchen looked great. My only comment is it would be nice to have a white fish dish to choose from. Compliments to the chef.

The pub has had a Reno but still feels not quite finished side outdoor entrance is not up to standard, outdoor furniture is all solid timber bench table combo hard on your back sitting at these all day , drinks are still reasonable, overall it’s still a pub in Ayr, the cheap pub menu is kept quiet as they try and up sell the much more expensive restaurant / dining area food but if you go to the main locals bar it’s there “but” you can only eat this food outside ( timber furniture) or in the locals bar area. ( comes out of the same kitchen) and is half the price. Photo attached of the “specials “ check out the tomohawk price and you still only get chips and salad

On a business trip to Ayr and chose the Kalamia for dinner. My partner ordered the lamb shanks and I ordered the potato gems “loaded with buffalo chicken, liquid cheese, chives and ranch dressing. The lamb shanks were lovely and a big serving. The gems were simply awful and probably worth $4. I was lucky to find the little cubes of chicken, don’t know where the liquid cheese was - I think it and the dressing were waved over the dish. $14 - no way, not worth it - I suppose for $14 I was expecting some lovely potato gems with a decent bit of chicken and some gooey cheese. I ate half a lamb shank and gave my partner some of the gems. Disappointing.

The old adage “some days are diamonds...” rings true with this restaurant. Recently having the misfortune to dine here for dinner twice in two weeks and lunch twice in 4 weeks, no serving was of the same standard. Chicken parmigiana and chicken schnitzel tasted bland and appeared to be deli bought “fake” chicken...yuk. An eye fillet one night was little bigger than a 50cent piece...absolutely ridiculous, yet another night the filet Mignon was delicious. Dinner of salt and pepper calamari was edible yet lunch time same was undercooked. Utterly rude lass behind the register topped off the whole miserable experience. Menu needs a complete overhaul and hire someone who can cook.

The fact this place has 4 stars shocks me. Firstly waiting 55 mins for an over cooked bland steak not to mention the managers horrific attitude. I would of appreciated if she didn’t slam every plate infront of me while trying to collect them. Any member of hospitality staff should be aware of the skill is staking plates gracefully on their arm rather than like a 3 year old with a toy hammer set Won’t be back. The bar staff are an absolute delight I have to stay which is the only positive I will give this place. Smiling faces and happy to help whenever needed

This was hands down the worst meal I have ever purchased. I had burger and chips which arrived raw!! I took it back and asked for just the burger to be cooked again ( no bun as it had too much relish on) and for the fries to be unsalted. After another half hour wait it came out burnt to a cinder ( yes it was certainly cooked) dry as old leather with chips containing more salt than the Atlantic Ocean. Meanwhile my husband had a chicken burger which came with more assorted relishes than the local delicatessen stocks and chips equally as salty as mine. Of course he had to eat alone as my lunch was being re made and we both ended up leaving our meals. I suggest they change chefs if the one they have can’t cook better than this. Total waste of money and ruined the day.

We ordered food here twice whilst we were holidaying in Ayr. The first time we ordered lunch from the front bar menu. It was $14.90 for large burgers and steak sandwiches with chips. This was great value for money. The second time we dined in and the food was delicious. The staff were friendly and helpful. Good prices.

I had the dirty birdie (chicken crumbed with creamy garlic sauce topped with bacon and prawns) absolutely amazing with salad and chips with extra creamy garlic sauce. Couldn’t fit in any chips ss the chicken was quite large. Recommend this everyone

Six of us dined here. Three ordered the salmon which got the thumbs up. I ordered the ribs which were huge, tender and tasty. Garlic prawns and chicken were the other two orders. These two diners also enjoyed their meals. Using my star card got 25% off my meal. This bought the ribs down to $25. I was disappointed that the discount did not apply to the other five dining guests. Choice is adequate but limited and no seniors menu. The old specials board was fantastic but this has been scaled down. I find the manager here distant and really not too bothered with customers even if they are regulars. Also depending when you visit getting a drink in anywhere but the public bar can be time consuming. On the whole the bar and pokie staff though are very helpful and friendly.

This place is just your typical Aussie pub, there are thousands of them. What sets this place apart is they cater to families and friends getting together. They don’t put up with the rowdy crowd, if you’re going to play up, don’t come here, they don’t want you.

I am a very picky person when it comes to how my food is prepared and tastes! My hubs took me out for dinner last night, 19/11/23 to this Pub/Restaurant. This lady loves her pork ribs (ALOT). Usually the cooks never get the sauce right on them. Let me tell you, Kalamia Restaurant got the sauce correct but oh my word, the entire meal was ABSOLUTELY the best meal I have ever had while traveling. They didn't skimp on the thickness of the rib meat, the salad, hot chips and coleslaw were divine. I was thanking my hubs even today for such a delightful, filling meal. If you want to truly have a phenomenal experience with food, You MUST go out to eat at the Kalamia. I couldn't finish a full rack of the pork ribs and for me, that is a 1st. Do yourself a favor, go check out this place, not only do you get your money's worth but the staff are so super friendly and they do an outstanding job. Can not recommend this restaurant highly enough. Thank you for a phenomenal dining experience for me!

The food was excellent. Service good, Prices good. Can really recommend the fish. Only thing, the restuarant is dark and could use some more light.
