Returned to Sissi this August. Made this our first stop. Without a doubt one of the most relaxing and chilled bars ever. Just sit and watch the sunset with a glass of top quality wine. Fab music and company. Lovely to see you again Alan and Irene

What a place. Without doubt the best place in town to relax and watch the sunset. Great owners - full of interesting conversation and fun stories. The bar has been so well thought out - the music is just the right volume, the flowers are beautiful, the lighting just right. Watching the sun set over the harbour breakwater whilst sipping...

My partner enjoys her glass of good wine. Good wine isn't easy to get in Sissi, certainly not by the glass! We had heard about Hemingways via TripAdviser and had it recommended when we arrived. Whether it's wine, lager, g&t or any other drink that's your choice then Hemingways is a good place to visit. The views are amazing but... More

Great location overlooking the harbour with laid back hosts Alan and Irene Good company with peaceful back ground music and seem to know their wines, also good measure of drinks and valve for money. They also like their cats and even the local ducks have a waddle down for a drink from their watering can. David and Michele

Fourth visit to Sissi and first time I've visited the Hemingway bar. Why did I not visit it sooner. A fab wee very friendly place where all the clients seem to mix and chat with each other. Owners very friendly and join in. Best place for a view of the stunning sunsets. New favourite bar in Sissi

Only visited once but the welcome was warm and the wine (from Crete) was the best we had during our stay. The owners know their wine and the quantity was generous! Great views of sunset - perfect spot for a pre or post dinner drink

**if you do NOT like cats this place is not for you** I love cats so not a problem! Absolute gem of a place (although inside is not wheelchair friendly) Grab a seat and take in the views and forget about the world. The owner was friendly and her friends (cats) love a fuss. We only stopped for about an... More
