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

It became our favorite during our stay in Oia. It's quite, has a nice terrace, view to the sea and over Finikia, good service and also tasty authentic food prepared with ingredients that come mainly from the island. We liked the starters and the vegetarian food very much. The bread is quite awful but not worse than in all the... More

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.
