Top restaurant

Great view and great food, during our stay in Platanios we found this to be the best restaurant we visited, yes it's more expensive than other restaurants in the area but you pay for the quality of food and the top service. Would highly recommend

We visited cosmos as part of our holiday in Crete. Good service and food and the most amazing view. Don't expect Michelin star food but for 80 € for a pax of four the food is good value. We had the flank star to share which was great. Waiters made a special burger for our son. After visiting a lot... More

The view is probably the best available at Crete. Combined with excellent food and a staff that know everything there is to know about their food and drinks this is a must visit!

Loved this place. Very cute. Lovely views over the whole of the coast line. It also has the most gorgeous food. We ate the local specials for each course. We chose a wine and the sommelier recommended a different wine which was a great choice. It is a relaxed environment and perfect for romance or as we were, a few... More

Thank you for a night to remember. Even when the rain was poring in and the storm clouds where gathering you made us feel special. The food was wonderful and the starter with gruyere was so fresh and tasty. The only down side was the weather but that was nothing you could control. Five stars all night long!

Cosmos serves different food from the tavernas. Higher class and more expensive - yes, but worth it as something different from the rest of the places in Platanias. I have noted that as good as all restaurants in Platanias has a score of around 4.5, which is curious. They are not all that good and the differences between them is... More

We went here for dinner just at sunset with a great view. Food was amazing with great wine and the waiters made us feel very welcome. Don't miss this restaurant if you're in Platanias.
