Also great for a night-cap Metaxa. Run by a great couple of ex-pats for years, overlooking the harbour this is our favourite, when we can get a seat. Both the cats and the ducks will greet you warmly.

Fantastic bar in a magical location. A background of 60s & 70s music a number of cats either sleeping or waiting their turn behind the lame duck for the hosts to fill their bowl with cat food and very friendly hosts. Loved the place.

What can I say! During our two week stay here in Sissi we visited this establishment most evenings. Why? Because the hosts Alan and Irene are two of friendliest people you will ever meet, the location is superb and the cats and the cat food...More
