Lovely tavern hidden away close to our villa in Finikia. Smallish outside terrace seats about 30 people, doesn't need many people to make it feel busy which is good. Waiter is very friendly, excellent English and can't do enough for you. We have been a couple of times, haven't eaten much as we find our appetites are somewhat diminished in... More

The service was amazing, the house wine was the best house offering we had in two weeks, everything we ordered was delicious. The fried cheese, and lamb bites were my personal fav but we had over 6 orders and our party loved it all! The server was very kind, honest in his suggestions and even gave us a lis of... More

We had a delicious meal sitting outside in this restaurant in Finakia. Tzatsiki was the best we had anywhere. Both the lamb and the pork where tender we couldn't have it without the chips which showed a lack of flexibility but otherwise delicious as was the Mavrotragano (les Cigales). Really good and interesting waiter too - Dimitris.

We have trekked from Sigalas winery to have lunch here, no mean feat up hill. The restaurant is hidden away and when you arrive you question if this is it. The place the locals have told us about. It is very unassuming, but typical of the local area. We are welcomed and seated, the waiter is very Greek and very... More

Great local Greek food! Me and my daughter loved recommendations our very friendly waiter Dimitry. All of the appetizers were fantastic - the special Greek cheese, tomato fritters, white eggplant, fava, tsiziki, Greek salad. Also, the baklava was one of the best! Great terrace with a nice view. Try the White House wine as well.

Great food and lovely view. A very relaxing meal. Felt like I could spend hours there. Its prices are very good. The restaurant is a little hard to find, just aim for the center of the town. Finikai itself is much quieter than Oia. A very charming place.

This little resteraunt is tucked far away from the tourist places and is most frequented by locals. The owner comes to your table to say hi and the waiters are very friendly. The atmosphere is like that of a home, very warm and cosy. Food was excellent. The lamb chops, lamb on spit, meat balls, everything was delicous, and reasonable... More

This restaurant was recommended by a local and did not disappoint. It has a wonderfully authentic ambience, the food is superb - the best we've tasted in Greece, and the service personal and prompt. I would highly recommend Krinaki to anyone visiting the Finikia/Oia region of Santorini.

As a Greek citizen, I can confirm that in Krinaki you get the real local deal. Try to find this amazing "ouzeri" and support this type of business.

The service was extremely slow, however we were happy to wait. Eventually our food came out and as 3 of us were digging into our chicken souvlaki we all noticed that our chicken was raw. Some parts were cooked, some were completely raw. We sent it back to the kitchen, they apologised and re-cooked the chicken. Once it had come... More
