If you are looking for a place to eat while watching the sunset i would recommend Cosmos. The food is ok and the prises are quite high. If you just want good food there are a lot restaurants in Platanias that can help you with that. What is unique for Cosmos is the romantic sunset. It is a... read more

We eat here last week. The view and ambience are excellent. The food of a higher quality than the standard Crete cuisine elsewhere reflected in the slightly higher prices.

Me and my partner decided to book table here after seeing all the positive reviews, and we weren't disappointed....the vue from the top was amazing, but the food didn't match up to it... It was good but we weren't amazed by it. Would recommend eating here though!!

The best experience of our holiday. The food was superb definately deserves michelin stars. Rib eye steak melted in my mouth. My partner and daughter loved cosmos pasta. The soumellier was very knowledgeable and curtious. Our waiter from Estonia was very attentive and a joy to talk with as were all the staff. A place where you feel really spoilt... More

If you are in Plantanias, there is no excuse for not visiting this restaurant, none at all. Even if you are all inclusive in one of the lovely hotels, if you do not go you will be seriously missing out. Situated on top of the hill above the resort, it is obvious the views are going to be amazing, and... More

A wonderful experience. But be sure to book a table in good time and try to make a reservation in sunset. It's truly amazing! We had stuffed and baked octopus, then the best rib eye steak ever and a delicious lamb shank. So good...
