Assumed a Red Lion in Malia would be fish and chips. So wrong. Extensive menu with fabulous Greek dishes. Great couple of evenings here, would definitely recommend.

The chips are the best I've had in my life! If there's gluten in spuds, then they aren't, cos they're home made . There was a HUGE menu, I'm sure you'll find something that suits . Enjoy!
