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

“Amazing view”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 June 2014

Amazing view over platanias and the ocean. The waiter was really friendly, and the food was good. Specially the desert, chocolate mousse! To sit on the terrace it is recommended to reserve a table. We had the veal for two persons. It was cut at the table, and was very nicely cooked. Only minus is that it got cold really fast since it was cut into thin slices.

“Excellent value for the €, once Again!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 June 2014

Just tonight we visited Cosmos with our family of five. 3 kids under 7. My wife made the reservation via Cosmos' internet pages 3 weeks ahead, and everything was just as expected: the right floor & table just by the edge. Edge really is some 50m straight down.

This was our third time in Crete & Cosmos. The service was excellent for the returning customers, and the food very good. Of course, the place is not close to Michelin stars, but compared to taverns all having the same menu, this is really a restaurant.

The sunset was due around 20:30, but we arrived about 1945, which was perfect as all the other tables were full, and actually sun sets at Cosmos close to half an hour before the "real" sun set, as there is a mountain to hide the sun before the sea horizon.

The starters were pretty good, children just had home made fried potatoes, which are worth trying at Cosmos. Main course was tasteful, and with pork we has Traminer from the Northern Creece. Excellent white wine! And, as returning customers, I guess the owner wanted to offer as another bottle of it :). Well, couldn't finish it totally.

As to desert, about kids, when we asked whether there is ice cream: "don't worry, we'll handle that". And so it went on them bringing kids mini ice cream cones as much as they would eat. :)

The adult's desert was excellent, chocolate sin & so on.

The main thing of course here is the view and it was excellent!

The bill for 2 adults & 3 kids under 7: 144,60€.

“Super”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 June 2014 via mobile

Kindly staff and very good food. For whisky lovers this is a must. They have a huge collection of whisky. I recommend Lagavulin 25 Years. Bottle 29 of 9000. Expensive but worth every penny. Reserve table some days before

“Incredible views”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 June 2014

Incredible views, top of the old part of Platanias. Bring a fat wallet because it's not cheap, but the food is delicious and the wine list long :-) The staff is very nice and friendly, they really want to make the visit memorable for you. Visit this exquisite restaurant when you are in the old part of Platanias.
