Having done my research on Tripadvisor prior to arriving in Platanias, I knew that Cosmos was meant to be one of the best restaurants in Platanias, however, I had no idea just how good it was until we got there. My family and I went to Cosmos on the 3rd night of our holiday, having read some negative comments re... More

Amazing (!!) view with sunset, very good customer service and high-class food with successful wine recommendation. The waiter was professional, friendly and had really good knowledge about wines. The restaurant is really popular, so one should make table reservation for getting the best view! Food is really good, but a big minus that it is not possible to get any... More

Me & my partner visited here on our last night in Crete. 5 star service! Gorgeous food, I had the lamb shank with mashed potato was the best I've ever had! Staff were so friendly, polite & their service was second to none! As for the views we went just before sunset & it was stunning! Can't recommend this place... More

Perhaps the best view in the whole of Crete? To be honest, both me and my fiance both agreed that we never had had a meal with such an amazing view before. The service was just as excellent as the view. The food is of very high quality as well and a nice breeze from most of the food served... More

Very nice restaurant with good food and service. The view is great, but try to get there before the sun goes down, and get the balcony table. (Might have to reserve a table). Note that the prices are pretty high so probably not for someone on a budget. Also note that there is not possible to get a baby waggon... More

You certainly work up an appetite as you climb the hill upto the restaurant and the view from the top is absolutely breathtaking. A warm welcome awaits you there and the food is outstanding, as is the ambience and service. This is a gem of a place and if you're in the area do not miss out!! Highly recommended 5****

I travel many different countries each year and visit many starred restaurants. I had one of the best restaurant experience of my life at Cosmos. The scenario is simply amazing, particularly if you have the chance to be there at sunset time. The staff is fantastic, typical of the Cretian sense of hospitality, but here even more. The menu and... More

We had greek salad, grilled angus steaks which were some of the best steaks we have ever had. Great greek shiraz redwine. Creamy chocolate mousse cake with a glas of mavrodafni dessert redwine. Wow. And then finish with a good... 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
