A little late with this review as we went in August 16. The photos on Trip Advisor reminded us that we spent a very relaxing hour here one evening. Firstly, what a view !! It doesn't get much more relaxing. The owners couldn't do enough for us. Made some nice fruit juices for the kids and had a good selection... More

A bit biased this but a home from home, might as well of been my music collection, superb. It was the last week of the season and every night we took ourselves here and was treated to great hospitality and drink, the music was right up our street (I think this may have been tweaked to suit us lol). As... More

Either Angie and I are getting too old and forgetful or the sunday quiz set by Alan is getting harder! A great afternoon spent in good company just a shame we could not stay longer. We hope to continue our pilgrimage to hemmingways again if only to add to our tally of fridge magnet prizes! All the best for the... More

Returned here this year after having fond memories to be unfortunately disappointed cocktails we ordered was not of the right ingredients maybe been due to being the end of season and not restocking spirits would be in no rush to go back

2nd visit to Sissi and would be disappointed if Hemingway (and Alan and Irene) weren't there as it made our afternoons/evenings. Good wine and cocktails at reasonable prices, excellent hosts and a interesting music quiz on Sunday.Great sunset across the harbour

Tried to call here for drink. Found the owner unhelpful and patronising so we didn't bother. Much, much nicer places in Sissi, who actually want your custom.

Sisi is the place to watch the sunset in Crete. To sit and watch it with a glass of wine is the perfect finish to the day and a perfect start to the evening. Hemingway' s is along with a few other bars a good place to sit and relax. The beer and wine was chilled and so was my... More

Eclectic music and hosts is what you'll find at the Hemingway. We enjoyed the feel of the place and found Alan and Irene very welcoming. The drinks are reasonably priced and the sunset is beautiful. It is a small place and if you like cats and 70's music (which we do) then you'll love it, but we can understand some... More
