Our family visited Cosmos yesterday, the view over the town was magnificiant. It was nice to look at the sunset. We had three different starters which all were very good, however the salmon was the best. Cheviche fish tasted excellent but It could have been even better without skin. All the main courses were very good, however the lam&tabulah was... More

We ate here one evening just before sunset in early October 2016. A beautiful location with stunning views of the area and the setting sun. Exceptional service, superb food, and a very well appointed restaurant with fine attention to detail, from the decor to the cutlery :-D

We ate here earlier this week, booked a table at 7 to watch the sunset and were not dissapointed. The view was magnificent and the service was great. The starters were both a bit dissapointing, but the lamb we had for the main course was great and the wine we got with it was great too! The dessert was quite... More

Cosmos is the highest restauant in the area of Platanias, and from year 2002, serves suberb dinner to all foodies who are looking for perfection. Relax and chill over the multi-colour view of Chania under lounge music supported with our creative / simple menu of Mediterranean tastes, and a 300 labels cava of wines, whiskys , eau de vie , dessert wines, vintage Vodkas, Rums ect. Βaby wagons/trolleys are not allowed in the restaurant area during dinner time unless there is a kinetic problem,
persons with special needs or kids with DOWN syndrome, and sadly is difficult to accommodate children under the age of 6.
Have in mind that restaurant does not have children's playground and children's responsibility and behaviour remains
with the accompanied adults. Trying to keep our food quality in high standards our menu is quiet compressed, with 10 main courses and 7 appetizers, so we do not serve menus for allergic and vegetarians.
We do not have dress code but we recommend smart casual. No running / beach clothes or sport shorts please if possible.

Telephone line is open from Monday to Sunday from 11:00-17:55 (28210-68558)
Opening days:
Monday to Sunday
Service Hours:
18:30 - 23:30 dinner only
