Excellent local cuisine in Finikia (Oia)

Simple, tasty, classic and freshly cooked Greek cuisine with friendly service. Good selection and we particularly enjoyed the specials. Very good value.

Lovely food and a place worth visiting if you like tasty Greek food! Krinaki is renowned for the quality of its food and those who like good Greek cuisine are unlikely to be disappointed by visiting it!

Great "mamamade" greek food in a beautiful and friendly enviromenment right in the center of Finikia. Average prices. Whatever you order, don't miss the homemade french fries.

WE stumbled across this little restaurant in the small village of Finika just outside Oia. The staff were attentive and the food is home made and great value. You feel as if you are eating at someone's house. We had both an evening meal here and dropped by for cold drinks in the afternoon. The staff do not hassle you... More

Incredible food! Our concierge told us to go as she said its her favorite place in all of santorini. It's a lot of locals so you know the food has to be good! The chicken souvlaki, spicy cheese and tzaziki were amazing! Great spot.

Although a tad difficult to find through the lane ways, once there it feels like an oasis of amazing local food! We had saganaki, santorini salad, chicken souvlaki and an eggplant special (amazing!!). We walked from Oia and it took 25 minutes to get there, so not that bad. Make sure you do get there!!!

This place was excellent. It had very good meat dishes and some delicious fava. The Santorini wine was very tasty if slightly strong and we would have gone back if we had had more time. Well worth the walk out from Oia.

This restaurant was a short walk from our hotel and recommended to us. It was very windy on the evening we visited so we chose to sit inside. It is very rustic but charming and the outdoor terrace is lovely. I ordered the lamb as I heard it was particularly good here and I wasn't disappointed. The meat just melted... More

This restaurant was our first, and last in Santorini. We arrived very late our first night and had great service and a great meal with the eggplant, fave, meatballs, trout, and the most incredible lamb. Tomotoe fritters and Greek salad, spicy cheese, all not to be missed. Traditional food in a great spot off the beaten path. Highly recommended!

We showed up late (1030) on a Monday, no one else there, still greeted us with open arms and got a great meal. Last serving of lamb for the day, had a great house white wine, and white eggplant of course. We were on vacation, and weren't shy about telling our waiter (who was great!) that we just wanted what... More
