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.

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

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
