This was hands down the best restaurant where we ate in Crete. The restaurant had great view, nice decor and friendly service. The best thing however was the amazingly delicious food. Highly recommend.

Plataniás is a place where restaurants, especially in the main street, will aggressively offer you all kinds of dishes at low prices. The atmosphere at those restaurants will be busy and very noisy. The food there will basically be microwaved food that taste very little if anything at all. Cosmos is very different. It is a real restaurant. With a... More

We managed to get a table overlooking Platanias - do ask for this when booking. It can get quite chilly so bring a jumper. I did not and the manager kindly lent me his jacket. The service and food were brilliant and if we had more time we would have gone back. Loved it. Get a taxi there as up... More

Food was average. Nothing special, not bad, not great. The view was nice, and the service is about the same level as the rest of the restaurants in Platanias.

dear friend. As you came for dinner at the last day of our opening season i remember you very well because you were the only guest of our working day as the restaurant is closing for the winter time.

By luck we found Cosmos at the top and enjoyed near perfect meals three nights during our stay. The fish was the winner for us. Great service where we really felt we were welcome at Cosmos. Hope to see you again in a couple of years.

The food is absolutely amazing! I was there 2 times during my stay. I got an Avocado salad the first time and Mojito-chicken second time. Both were so tasty and the portions were so big, that I almost couldn't eat it all :) Everything is freshly made and they use organic food to prepare it all. The staff is also... 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
