Our story

Hello and welcome to the Red Lion

 It all started in 1999 when we first opened a small pub where guests would enjoy beer, breakfast and a little choice between snacks and main meals.

 Ten years later in 2009 we upgraded our place to a gastropub and restaurant emphasizing on fresh, homemade food from scratch, with the most popular local and international dishes.

This year we celebrate our 20th anniversary
with the same philosophy,
but with an upgrade to our style and menu.

The Red Lion bar and restaurant coming together and starting a brand new, state of the art smoke house and B.B.Q..

Authentic “low & slow” B.B.Q., in our custom built offset smoker and home dry aged steaks offering the best and most original smoked and grilled food in Malia

Operating: May to October from 10:30 a.m. – 2 a.m. every day

Please note: We are an independent trademarked company.
Any other business with similar or same name
is not connected with us.
We are situated only in Malia at the moment and soon else where.
