We've been Viking the RBar on the last couple of holidays to Stalis. It's a really friendly place, Barbs is usually around during the day. Her cocktails are excellent, especially the Harvey wallbanger! Free pool, darts and Playstation make it ideal for kids too. Reasonable prices and good pub food too. Would recommend!

I am sure by the end of my holiday they were glad to see the back of me, but I have to say the best bar in Malia/Stalis. I would not go any where else, Justin, Sheila and Barb are just great. I would recommend it to all age groups of people and I look forward to returning next year.

I visited R Bar 3 times during my two week stay in Malia - twice on my way back from Dwyers late afternoon, and one evening. Its a great bar, with a pool table, dart board, several screens with lots of different sports channels available, and I understand now a playstation for customers. I ate there a couple of times...
