Great food

Somewhere in the depths of a wet and dreary English winter we decided that the first night out of our Santorini holiday would be spent at one of our favourite places, Krinaki. This decision was certainly justified, tucking into superbly grilled lamb chops, washed down with very good local red wine... read more

This was our first meal in Greece and it set the bar high! We were staying at Lotza studios in Finikia and this restaurant is just a short walk away. They were accommodating for our large group and my young son. Our server explained the entire menu to us and made recommendations, especially with regards to local specialties we would... More

Krinaki is a delightful restaurant in a beautiful village setting. Upon our arrival we chose to sit outside and enjoy the beautiful view. We were offered lots of help with our choices and were not disappointed! We were delighted to know the food we were enjoying was all from the island, fresh, pure and simple ingredients. The fava was particularly... More

With its simple rustic charm, this place was a delightful find. It is off the beaten track and in the middle of a traditional Greek village off the main road between Imerovigli and Oia. You will probably need to drive to get here if you stay in Fira but you can also walk there by taking the road to Oia... More

Krinaki is a cozy, authentic, lovely restaurant in Finikia away from the tourist mayhem on the island of Santorini. Indoor and outdoor seating are available and both are comfortable. It is not possible to drive there since it is located along the narrow twisting walkways of Finikia past the parking area. That location in a neighborhood adds to the restaurant... More

I loved this place a lot. I might even say this was the best place of my whole trip in Santorini. The ingredients are so fresh and tasty. I'm vegan which is not always easy to explain to people, especially in Greece. At Krinaki I did not just found myself understood I also found a great option of wonderful dishes... More

This is the place to get a locally prepared meal. The chef is in the back grilling meat and preparing all the dishes. It's hidden, it's quaint, and its the hidden gem all travelers are looking for. These people love food and it shows. Be prepared for mouthwatering food, Great conversation, and a perfect atmosphere for the best meal of... More

Great outside patio. In a village off the beaten path. Worth the cab ride up. The entire menu was explained to us. Tried the tomato fritters and they were delicious! The lamb main dish was so tasty. Homemade wine from the village was quite decent also

Must try their grill sausage and tomato fritters! We ordered twice! The waiter was also very polite and helpful, recommended their dishes of the day to us. It situated near to ambelia traditional villas, nice and quiet environment too!
