This place has a spectacular view - and that's about it. There are so many restaurants down town that are way better than this. But if you're looking for a great view - this is the place in Platanias.

The restaurant is the highest of the zone. This is very good for the panorama but a bit annoying for the wind that is constant during all the dinner. Fortunately they gave to us two nice covers to avoid to take a cold The food was really good, not much chooses in the menu, but a lot of Greek specialities.... More

We ventured into Platanias for the first time and enjoyed a great evening right on top of the hill at Cosmos. The location overlooking the sea is one of the most stunning you will ever come across, and the food is above average (and priced accordingly). All the waiting staff were engaged, chatty and helpful. Well worth a visit (make... More

Very nice location, beautyful view, first quality food(particularly meat) All the staff is really Kind! They Made a small mistake with our order (we ordered a rare steak and they bring us a well done steak), they suddently remade the dish and they cut this cost from our bill.

My wife, two daughters (aged 14 and nearly 12) had a superb meal at Cosmos on the last night of our holidays. The restaurants in Platanias are all pretty good, but Cosmos is on a different level - literally, as it's the highest restaurant in the area, but also in terms of quality. The food was outstanding (I recommend the... More
