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.

meat dishes made in traditional Geek way. All kinds of meat come from Cycladic islands and do not worry because you will not be on the Caldera. Deciding to go to a traditional village is really worthy.

Tasty food and very reasonable prices. More authentic dining than elsewhere in Oia. Service was also very friendly. The easiest way to find this restaurant if coming from Oia is to walk out of town towards Fira, when you get to a fork in the road where Vazeos car rental is, talk the smaller left road and walk for ten...

We stayed near this restaurant and decided we would try our luck in finding it. We were not disappointed. The easiest way to find the restaurant is to head down the road opposite the Oia Suites (running next to the "Santorini Mou" tavern). Turn right at the carpark about 100metres down the road and follow the signs to the restaurant.... More

We were recommended this restaurant by our hotel next door, Villa Agnadi. It is incredible. The food was so good that we had to go back a second time to sample some more of the menu! Undoubtedly the best food on our holidays, even after trying some of the nicer Oia restaurants. It won't definitely be worth the 15 minute... More

We were referred here by the fabulous hostess at anemoessa villa, the incomparable irini. First off, finikia is a treasure. Who knew it existed! Then the only place in town ......krinaki tavern,,,,,holy mackerel.
