This is not the typical touristy Santorini restaurant. For Greek standards, the food isn't anything too special/unique, but it is delicious and the staff is very friendly and will make recommendations. Be sure to get the Ntomatokeftedes (tomato/veggie patties) - this is one of Santorini's traditional dishes and Krinaki makes them very well! The Eastern sea view is very beautiful,... More

Lovely traditional food. I ate far too much it was delicious! Husband and I had the lamb and the chicken special dish, and shared both between us. I think the chicken just edged it... Restauraunt is very off the beaten track, you have to go looking for it, which we did following our hotel's recommendations. We were the only customer... More

Recommended by our host. Not easy to find, but worth it. Typical greek out of the main stream Oia. View to the Ios from the terrasse. Went there today for lunch and returned for dinner. White eggplants, chicken souvlaki, Lamb-Pork-meet burger. All very good food and certainly well priced. Full tonight, and and some of the customers booked a table... More

We spent 6 nights in Oia and had dinner at Krinaki twice. Clearly a family run establishment more geared to locals than tourists. It was quiet and out-of-the-way, which suited us just fine - a nice counterpoint to the crowds of Oia. We enjoyed the lamb, tzatziki with bread, local sausage, and had the best tomato fritter. The service was... More

Nice little tavera in the village Finikia. Good homemade food and a nice atmosphere. Have the spicy cheese and the tomato balls.

Where to start....although seating was readily available throughout the courtyard, we were only given the option of the table next to the entry or the toilet. We were then ignored for 15 minutes. The service was poor all round and the chef seemed more interested in coming out and talking to his mates than cooking the food. Our dishes didn't... More

This is possibly the worst meal I've had in the last year, anywhere in the world. Although the tzatziki was good, the bread was like a French stick from a cheap supermarket - not the usual Greek quality. The wine was fine, but the greens tasteless - I had some 10 times better yesterday up the road for half the... More

Situated in the traditional village of Finikia, just a 15 minute walk from Oia, and a pleasant respite from the hordes. The menu is authentic, with local dishes, and daily specials. We had the Santorini Greens salad - yum; an aubergine (eggplant) dish - yum; and shared the roast lamb - Heaven. Prices are reasonable and Finikia is beautiful and... More

Go here while staying in Oia... It's not the usual tourist mecca with a sunset view but a traditional taverna in the Greek village of Finikia Pleasant service , good food, nice patio with a distant view of Ios. This was recommended by our villa owner, and we were glad we went.
