Alan and Irene will give you the warmest British welcome in this little Greek paradise. Whilst chatting about the 70's listening to music of the era - then changing to a bit of modern, watching the sunset and the few wispy clouds change colour and sipping a full bodied red wine..........ideal

Overlooking the harbour and out to sea, great place to see the sun going down. Alan and Irene were extremely friendly and we would recommend their music quiz at 3pm on Sundays.

More visits to this wonderful Bar in Sissi in both June and September. This bar has improved significantly with the introduction of new wines hand picked by the owners Alan and Irene. Superb atmosphere and wonderful music has seen this bar getting busier as the season went along. Well done guys, a really great place for a glass or three... More

This was our favourite bar in sissi. Reason is it has a great location overlooking the Harbour, and would be a great place for watching the sunset go down.
