Cosmos is a wonderful restaurant to enjoy dinner as you will be able to enjoy the beautiful views while you are eating. not quite the fine dining we were looking for but still suficiently good to be enoyed as a celebration dinner.

dear friend...thank you or the time you had in our restaurant...you are really kind person Sorry to say that there is no gourmet restaurant in platanias as it is a family destination and there are no customers who are seeking for gourmet tastes. And if they exist are only the 10% of the tourists that are moving around...maybe 5%... greetings... More

We were recommended to book a table, so we did. For non-smokers order a table inside. They showed us up and out to see the view before seating, and we also got a trip upstair and out while waiting for food. One of the owners told us about the island outside where the Kri-kri lives. And some history. The food... More

Cosmos takes a little hike up a hill, but it is worth it. You will not be disappointed. The view is worth the visit. Then you add in the food and service, do not miss. The mousaka was large and baked while you wait, not microwaved. The service was impeccable. Wine and water glasses refilled as needed without asking. And... More

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
