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

Alan and Irene welcome you with Crete charm and English niceness We had a few great days chewing the fat and the beer and ouso were much better than the watered down stuff of the Minos Imperial long may your pub doors stay open Kindest Regards from Tricia and Stuart

Last Saturday june 21st afternoon we discovered – a whole week too late - this wonderful small bar in Sissi. Irene and Alan are such lovely people to talk with and we stayed some +2 hours with them. Me, a Flemish soulclub deejay some 30-40 years ago and Alan, devoted to his Britrock music, had a lot to discuss :-).... More

The Sunday afternoon Quiz was also very enjoyable and a break from the normal and we enjoyed the company of a good number of other people including a couple from the... More

We went to The Hemingway twice during our recent week-long visit to Sissi for drinks in the evening and we are so glad that we did. We avoided it last year due to some of the negative feedback given on here (which we now feel is unjust and the remarks are untrue), so this year made the effort to go.... More

Alan and Irene are two top people, very attentive, friendly and homely with it. Cats are excellent, as we love them just as much as they do. What you have to understand is that Alan and Irene have moved from England and invested there whole heart into this business and are part of the Sissi community. They live here all... More
