Alan and Irene are great hosts good conversation, great music no boom boom boom music here which is typical in other bars just a great selection of rock classics! Great views over the harbour and of the sunset. They offer a great choice of good Cretan wines and also make a mean... More

We've been coming to Sissi for six years and sadly never tried the Hemmingway bar. What an opportunity we've missed over the years. We had a lovely cocktail and enjoyed interesting conversation with Irene and Alan the owners, and met another couple who were staying in accommodation next door to us. Such a pleasant evening with lovely music that was... More

Big thumbs up to The Hemingway in Sissi. Wine is cheap. Views are spectacular and the music is choice. Owners Alan & Irene are lovely people with a warm welcome. A must for any visitor to Sissi.

A comfortable place to watch the sunset. based on previous reviews, i was expecting something alot better! Yes, it has a sunset view, but so does every place on the harbour/waterfront as well as majority of hotels i imagine. Very laid back, which i liked, but no drinks menus. Pretty cheap, 3.5euro for large wine. An ok spot for a... More

If you are in or near Sissi you need to,pop into hemmingways. There is no Malia boom boom music here, just an eclectic mix of really classy music that spans rock (prog, light and hard), folk, classic 60's, 70's, 80's and more - so something to suit every taste! Wide and varied wine selection by the glass and had a... More

Went to Hemingway's many times last year during two holiday's, so decided to visit again this year during May and June. Always very relaxing with good company from Alan & Irene, but also from the customers. Hemingway's seems to attract very social minded people which gives way to a lovely atmosphere afternoon or evening. They have added some very good... More

A great bar with terrific views of the sunset, serving fabulous music for those with discerning taste - The Doors, Rem, Rolling Stones to name a few. Margaritas to die for. Irene and Alan are just about the most relaxed couple, sitting with guests and chatting. Oh, and not forgetting the cats! Highly recommended.
