Slightly off the beaten track, along a twisty but well maintained walkway, you will come upon Krinaki. Hidden away, with its compact courtyard, it's a traditional little gem of a restaurant. The owner is head chef and though apparently a meat lover (the home made spicy sausage is fabulous), he's still concocted a mouth watering classic Santorini dish of white... More

Try the pork "Tigania" and the kotsi dinner! They are phenomenal... We tried the lamb on the spit but weren't that impressed... Could be better! Overall very good and quiet!

While on our first visit to the Island of Santorini, we rented a cave house in Oia. The owner gave us any suggestions for activities and places to eat while visiting neighboring villages. Our perference usually falls within the lines of small, quaint places that offer a more home cooked experience. Krinaki didn't dissappoint! We chose to walf from Oia... More

Had a super meal during which there was a power cut in the area. The staff coped very well, brought us candles and in reality it was a beautiful atmosphere under the stars. Was a shame when the lights came back on!!! Off the beaten track and away from the crowds. Well worth it.

We had a lovely lunch at Krinaki. A wonderful traditional greek taverna. You can have a great mean for €40 including a small bottle of wine and beer. The souvlaki was the best we have tasted on Santorini since we arrived 10 days ago, it was was moist and very tasty same applies to the tzatziki. The service was helpful... More

A special feeling at the entrance of Finikia village. Away from the crowds of Oia village this original Greek tavern offers you excellent food in a quiet and lovely patio with views to Finikia and to the ocean.

Found this place by coincidence as we arrived to our accommodation really late and wanted to eat close by. Staff here is super friendly and welcoming and the atmosphere is very traditional and relaxing here. We stayed two nights on Santorini and ate here both evenings as the food was soo good the first time round. Tzatziki and sausage for... More

The food was cold and looked and tasted old and unpleasant. Some fish smelt and was sent back. I therefore avoided many of the dishes, even so I and my wife had very upset stomachs the next day
