Description: 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

“Fantastisk mad, fantastisk udsigt og fantastisk betjening”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 10, 2013 via mobile

We went to the restaurant mostly for the Great view, but was met by excellent service and the Best food in Platanias. We had fresh an tasty sallads for starters and delicious Moussakas and goat (!) for mains. The portions were so Big that we had no room for dessert. The house rose is highly reccomendable. A special thanks to out waiter Dimitri who made our evening very special.

“Amazing experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 5, 2013

Me and my girlfriend were on holiday in chania and decided to get a cab into platanias to find somewhere to eat away from the hotel we were staying in. The taxi driver recommended that we tried the old village and dropped us to the highest point just outside cosmos. We were deciding which way to walk to find somewhere when we were greeted by a waiter from the doorway of cosmos, he was very welcoming as were the rest of the staff and showed us to the terrace where we sat with the most amazing view of platanias and the whole stretch of beach, it was very romantic. The staff were such nice guys and really friendly. Now on to the big thing... The food, we shared the pork belly starter which was so tender and tasty we could of eaten just a plate of it on its own. For main I had a pork dish that was the best cut of meat I have ever eaten and cooked so well, My girlfriend had a steak pasta dish which was also cooked to absolute perfection. We decided against a pudding as the starter and main were so satisfying. When we had paid the bill the waiter brought over a shot of local honey raki over which was a nice change to the usual after dinner mints. I would highly recommend this place to anybody just for the views and hospitality, it really did make our holiday.

“Must visit this restaurant!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 31, 2013

It was well worth that we spent our second anniversary dinner in this restaurant though we had a bit of mishaps along the way. It wasn't hard to find when we drove up the hill and parking was easy. The menu is not your typical Greek restaurant in the area which made that perfect as we wanted something special. Luckily when we arrived, the wind had died down a bit and we were able to sit on a table by the balcony. Service wasn't ordinary either, the waiter had great knowledge about Greek wine and food. The kitchen took pride in plating the food and this made them stand out from most restaurants in the area.

Downsides were that we made a reservation through email however never got a response. Good thing that we asked our hotel's concierge upon our arrival to ring up and check on our reservation only to be told that they didn't get any email. Sad part was when we came in, we weren't asked for our names, rather we were asked which hotel we booked our reservation from which felt a bit unpersonalised. Lastly, it wouldn't be bad if they had a decanter in the restaurant as we ordered for a wine that was at least 5 years old and we wanted to air it up a bit before we drank it.

The romantic ambience, spectacular view and service was extraordinary which made up for everything above. We would still come back to this restaurant on our next visit to Crete.

Dear friend....thank you for the review : )

I would like to apologize for the internet functiom of booking , but it is not working for 3 years now. Unfortunaltely we have been target of fake reservations , more than 20 times , so we decided to stop taking reservations from the internet. Althought is very easy for all , when they arrive to Crete to make a quick phone reservation : )

About wine...

The decating of the wine is requested when the wine is aged (8+ years). Over all , our glasses are SCHOTT ZWIESEL fine crystal , with a big thin lip opening , that helps the wine to "breath" from the time it is served in your glass. For being honest latest investigations , showed that the wine , is "breathing" from the bottle very easy , from the time it is opened , without decating.

Thank you for the review...We wish you the best for the rest of your summer and God bless you.
