We're now back from a VERY enjoyable holiday in Kalives,we ate at O Gialos on the first night and revisited to celebrate our friends Birthday also - Thanks Mike & Jane.We were lucky to get room 9 in Zourpas ovelooking the mountains which certainly were splendid ,especially in the early morning light.We visited many tavernas during our stay and they were all pretty good,however for location we preferred the Medusa\Mistraili side of town,but also enjoyed Zorbas on the square and Provlita.As I mentioned earlier we have been holiaying in Greece since 1985 and more recently in Stoupa,which we loved.However we all agreed that Kalyves was our favourite to date mainly because it is a Greek working town with little English influence.We didn't go to Kourmos - will save that for another visit.However we did enjoy visits to Aptera & Hania.Also the "girls" walked to Almerida whilst the men walked the Samaria Gorge(token gesture!).
Thanks to everyone for their advise and we hope you all enjoy your holidays as much as we did.

Sorry Honey - it wasn't that your response wasn't appreciated- no offence intended.Appreciate replies from all and certainly feel that we have a little more knowledge of Kalives now.

That was great information thanks Honey.
We are due to arrive in Kalives in just under 4 weeks now and getting quite excited.Our flight times have been changed and we now land at Chania at 8.30pm,so expect that it will be after 10pm when we drop off at the apartment.Could anyone suggest a taverna\snack bar central to the Twins and Zourpas(with directions) ,preferably overlooking the sea.After the journey(via Santorini)it would be better if we could pre arrange a place to meet and have the first drink and meal of the holiday.Obviously at that time of night we won't want to have time to walk around the resort looking for each other.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.Thanks.

Thanks Dave for all your efforts.At that time in the morning will not expect a full menu just a beer and a snack,the first Mythos\Amstel in Greece is something that is anticipated with joy many months before each holiday!The moussake\kleftiko can wait until the next day.Look forward to any further information you can give.
