Cosmos is visible from the beaches as it is perched on the top of Upper Platanias. There is a steep winding road leading to the restaurant. The road passes many excellent looking restaurants with very active door staff who will make good suggestions and try to persuade you to stop walking or at least pause. The service and food at...

The food here is a step up from most of the places along the beach and "the strip" in platanias. The atmosphere is nice and calm, waiters are friendly. Recommended.

Amazing view over platanias and the ocean. The waiter was really friendly, and the food was good. Specially the desert, chocolate mousse! To sit on the terrace it is recommended to reserve a table. We had the veal for two persons. It was cut at the table, and was very nicely cooked. Only minus is that it got cold really... More

Just tonight we visited Cosmos with our family of five. 3 kids under 7. My wife made the reservation via Cosmos' internet pages 3 weeks ahead, and everything was just as expected: the right floor & table just by the edge. Edge really is some 50m straight down. This was our third time in Crete & Cosmos. The service was... More

Kindly staff and very good food. For whisky lovers this is a must. They have a huge collection of whisky. I recommend Lagavulin 25 Years. Bottle 29 of 9000. Expensive but worth every penny. Reserve table some days before
