Santorini's Hidden Gem

Situated in the middle of the Finikia traditional village, so needing a small walk from the car park, this taverna is wonderful. Expect to find Greek standard dishes, but also local dishes of Santorini not generally on the main stream taverna and estatorio menus. We have eaten here at least five... read more

Its a Tavern with very good food, one of my favourite is his eggplant salad (melitzanosalata) and his original recipe. This time I booked a table for my Easter Lamb dinner. The lamb was one of the best i... More

This is a real Greek taverna, great food, good service and very reasonably priced. Book ahead though if you like grilled lamb chops, they tend to sell out. We went twice in five nights last year and will be there the first night of our hols in June this year. Beautiful view over the village, if you are lucky you... More

As we were staying in finikia, we didn't fancy the track into Oia for good. We decided to eat locally and what a great decision this was. The very traditional taverna had a lovely sea view ( not caldera) with a sun terrace. We ate there every night and though disappointed there there were very few fish options ( I... More

as we stayed in a hotel in the small village of Finikia, we found this little restaurant right next door. prices are definitely lower than in Oia. the menus has a quite large choice, although sometimes some of the choices were not available. having said that, we had dinner here 3 times during our stay. it's a family run restaurant,...

This taverna was just around the corner from where we stayed in Finikia and we loved it!!! Traditional, out of the main tourist area, lots of character, great food and well priced - visited 3 times during our stay.

Nestled in the labyrinth of streets in Finikia, the small village next to Oia, the restaurant has charm. The food was ok and the service was excellent.

We tried chefs specials of the day - vegetarian dish and pork in the lemon sauce, and they were WOW. one of the tastiest meals in Santorini.

We ate here on the recommendation of our hotel and looking at the TripAdvisor reviews expected a good meal / time. It is as traditional taverns located in the village of finikia. But apart from this our experience didn't match the other reviews. Starters were oily or deep fried and greasy (tomato fritters fava bean and traditional sausage) main course... More
