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

“One of the best restaurants at Platanias”
Reviewed 15 July 2014

Me and my fiancè first went to Cosmos in 2011. It was a very delightfull experience with profesional waiters, excellent food and great personal service.
So we decided to go there again this year. And we didn´t regret it for one second.

Well, first we decided to walk all the way up there. It´s a nice walk if you fancy walking upwards in the heat. We were "smart" enough to go before the sun went down, so we were pretty hot when we arrived.
We didn´t have a reservation, and was given a table at the top of the restaurant. This table was what we later called "the Purgatory". It was insanely hot at that table, with the blinders down to shade for the sun no air would get to us.
As our sweat was pouring we begged the waiters to be seated at another table where there were some air. Even if the restaurant was pretty full they were very helpfull, and got us a table by the window.
Finally, away from "the Purgatory" we could relax, enjoy both the view and the fantastic atmosphere of the restaurant. (We saw other guests being placed at "the Purgatory", but they also changed tables as soon as they could)

We got the food very fast (pasta with beef and chicken), and the red wine the waiter picked out for us was indeed as good as he said (he actually managed to pick a red wine that was great to both pasta with beef AND chicken! Skills!)

The staff was never in a hurry to get us out of there, and we got to relax with both dinner, dessert, and a complimentary Metaxa.
Once again we had a very nice experience at Cosmos, but next time we´ll probably order a table on the balcony with the best view possible.

I noticed that some say they don´t treat families good at Cosmos. That is not true. There was alot of families with children at the restaurant, and the staff was indeed very friendly and helpfull towards them. Personally I enjoy a restaurant with a calm and relaxing atmosphere where there is no children screaming with parents not lifting a finger to do anything about it. I am glad the staff at Cosmos is profesional enough to deal with such situations, regardless risking poor reviews.

“Excellent Restaurant: Above and beyond”
Reviewed 28 June 2014

Cosmos is visible from the beaches as it is perched on the top of Upper Platanias. There is a steep winding road leading to the restaurant. The road passes many excellent looking restaurants with very active door staff who will make good suggestions and try to persuade you to stop walking or at least pause. The service and food at Cosmos was well worth the effort and children were well catered for too. The sunset was truly worth witnessing from this position!

“Cop the view great service good value”
Reviewed 20 June 2014

We walked up hill to restaurant on first day of weeks stay in Platanias with intention of booking in later in week. Hell of a walk. Arrived hot and thirsty. Place not yet open but Dimitrios gave us a glass of beer and had Nickos show us around. We were fortunate in being able to secure an upstairs table with magic sunset view over town beaches and island for our son and daughter in law later in week and ourselves on following night. Last night of trip. You can get a cab up hill but that is cheating. Arrive thirsty and hungry and get stuck into local seafood. Great view great service good food. A first rate experience. Good value. Lots of tourists from Scandanavia and Germany who don't mind a smoke in outside areas. They still offer cigars at table. So you may cop a bit of nicotine outside. That will change. We still loved it.

“Lovely views, attentive waiters and good food”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

The food here is a step up from most of the places along the beach and "the strip" in platanias. The atmosphere is nice and calm, waiters are friendly. Recommended.
