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.

If there is a better way to spend an afternoon or evening in Sissi when you want great company and drink or two then I just don't know what it is. Ignore the plant pots who posted negative reviews and come down to this amazing wee bar with its incredible location overlooking the beautiful harbour of Sissi. Glug happily on... More
