“Best cocktails and food in Malia!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 June 2014

Dolphin bar has the best cocktails and food in Malia! If you want the biggest and the best cocktails make sure you get stopped by Ben on your walk on Malia beach! The only place where staff remember you and want you there for the company not only the custom. Best staff and regulars and the chef is fantastic. Don't just go somewhere that advertises a meal for 5 euros with skimpy proportions and looks nothing like the picture, go to the dolphin where a meal for 9 euros feeds you for a week and every mouthful gets a wow! We are members and won't go anywhere else on our two week holiday in Crete. The cleanest, friendliest bar and beach in Malia and the cocktails will not be matched anywhere!

“Amazing Cocktails”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 February 2014

Every day that we went to the beach we came here, they have there own sun loungers if you are using there bar and it is the ideal spot on the beach. Amazing coktails, good ole fashion style, mostly blended frozen ones with all the garnishes and wacky bits that modern cocktails sometimes miss like parrot straws and fake pineapples haha. Lovely, friendly staff, I believe they were Dutch and spoke perfect English. If I'm ever back here I'll be visiting the Dolphin and Molly Malones!
