“Dinin out "pedestrian" street level”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2012

Excellent traditional Cretan food and a good range of northern European dishes should you want a change.
Pleasant little bottled wine list but a carraf of village red is an excellent quensher for the house size pork chops!

“Don't leave Crete without a visit to Kosmas !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2012 via mobile

You are guaranteed a warm welcome, delicious food at incredible prices , attentive service and witty conversation at this jewel of a restaurant in aghia Gallini owned by Kosmas - we have been annual visitors since we first discovered it 14 years and other than the fact we are all a bit older, the experience is always one of the highlights of our visit to this amazing village in south Crete - only tell your closest friends as we don't want the secret to get out!!

“Gets better every year”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2012

We have been going to Galini for years and have always been regular visitors to Kosmas' but this year has been the best yet. He has a great team and the head waiter (Dragan) is a lovely guy. Kosmas is great company and there's always a very warm welcome. Good choice of food on the menu, including for veggies. Have never had a bad meal. Would heartily recommend.

“The best Saganaki in town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2012

We had dinner several times in this restaurant. The warm hospitality of Kosmas welcomes all the guests in the restaurant. A true must-do is the Saganaki, it is being served in a spectacular way on a burning plate, and has the perfect composition and taste of Greek cheese. Calamares and other food is also great. This is a very nice place, in the middle of the busy restaurant street, and most of the time busy, so be early or late evening to find a table.
