This was the only negative experience on our trip to Sissi . As per many others we felt we were intruding into a private party .. in fact the landlady told us that she had friends in and sat with them giving us the full view of her back!! .The cats were amusing until you realised how many there were...

We have just returned from a wonderful two week break in Sissi. Before our trip I had looked on trip advisor for some suggestions for places for an evening drink. Hemingways was on the list so on our first evening we found ourselves there. This was the first of many evenings in the company of Alan and Irene who made... More

We went to the Hemingway 3 or 4 times on our holiday because of the good view of the harbor and good cocktails/drinks but the owners of the bar- a middle-aged couple were not really that welcoming (sitting with their friends drinking) but on our third visit to Hemingway we were recognized and shown better attention and we were made...

Visited on our recent holiday to the island. Owners absolutely lovely with their cats! Reasonable priced drinks with great view to the harbour. Ended up sitting till early hours of the morning there and got loads of good tips what to do and not to do.

Hemingways sits in a wonderful setting by the side of Sissi harbour and is owned by at least seven cats who employ two wonderful slaves Irene & Alan. If you don't like cats then stay away, if you do then come and enjoy good company, and very reasonably priced drinks in this relaxing setting. Alans choice of music will bring... More

Just returned to the UK and miss the Hemingway already. Great company, super music and good stocks of nice beers and wines - Coldest white wine in Sissi, well done guys. My wife particularly enjoys this bar as there are a few cats around which is OK by me, and she is mad on cats. In fact she's just mad... More
