Unlike many other places in Santorini (like Lotza, for example), at Krinaki you will see really local people having their meals. And you know why? Because the food is amazingly good! The service is also great and the night that we had dinner there was also funny, because the waiter that apparently speaks English was not there yet so we... More

We made our way to Krinaki at the recommendation of our hotel. It was an easy walk from our hotel. It was one of the few restaurants open during the off-season. When we arrived there was only one other couple there and they seemed to be locals. The waiter was very nice and spoke very little English, but one of... More

We had the best meal of our honeymoon in Santorini here. Krinaki is actually located in Finikia, about a ten minute walk away from the hustle and bustle of Oia. Unlike so many meals we had in Oia, this restaurant felt like the place where the locals here go - and so they make quality food, rather than relying on... More

As we were staying at the edge of Oia at Onar Villas this restaurant was not too far for us to walk to.It was already dark as we strolled along the road into the village of Finikia and down a pathway that leads to Krinaki.The restaurant is traditional and rustic. My wife had the Lamb on a spit and I... More

We were recommended Krinaki by our hotel (Kirini Suites) who made a reservation for us. The restaurant is in a small village just about a mile away from the edge of Oia and easily reached on foot from where we were staying. As we had walked past the village car park earlier in the day to get to the vineyard,... More

About a mile outside of Oia lies the small village of Finikia. This is a quiet traditional settlement where paved paths wind between white washed houses and cars are absent from the narrow streets – a delightful place to wander and get away from the bustle and crowds of Oia. In the heart of Finikia lies a wonderful small tavern... More

I have several times visited Krinaki and steel is one of my favorite Restaurants in Santorini. It's a traditional Canava House with one of the best yards with beautiful flowers in the center of Finikia Vilagge outside of Oia. The service is family style with attentive staff. The food is as simple as tasteful with choices of traditional Greek cheeses... More

We had Green beans and Tomato starter which was lovely, followed by spit-roast Lamb which was devine. Despite the reviews we had the house red wine and it was lovely... More
