When you arrive in Platanias, you will soon find out that almost every place to have a meal pretty much is the same, with an unmistakable tourist touch and a complete lack of genuine, authentic touch. There are however a few places that apparently... More

We walked up to the old part of Platanias for an early dinner without having a reservation, and was lucky to get a table at Cosmos restaurant that I had read alot about.

View is absolutely stunning. We got a table in the upper, outer terrace where we could watch the sunset and had an excellent three-way panoramic view. The menu was varied, food was delicious and very affordable. Staff made good recommendations of both food and wine.
