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,...

Very goooood food, big sizes, fresh and tasty! This romantic taverna is one of the best we had on Oia. Try the lamb meet and good white wine! Service very friendly!

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

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
