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

If the service hadn't been that slow (only one real waitress for the whole restaurant) I would have given a 4/5 rating, but we spent almost one hour to wait for the dessert menu and the check... Prices are good for the food you have, especially when you consider that you are close to Oia, this place is really not... More

Eating lamp during a hot summer day as lunch does not sound a great idea. However, what we ate there have completely changed this perception. The food was very well prepared and the meat was excellent. Try paidakia.

We came for dinner and had the fava and olives for an appetizer, local dry white wine, the daily special of chicken curry and baklava to finish. Very happy with this meal.

We found this restaurant for a late lunch by accident as we were waiting for sunset in Oia. Initially we like the look of the place - it was very quaint and old fashioned looking. The staff were laid back and welcoming. They recommended the lunch of the day. It was very tasty, we enjoyed even more because it was... More

Krinaki is hidden away down winding streets in Finikia but is well worth seeking out. We arrived for a late lunch and the village and the taverna were quiet and peaceful. In fact there was only one other customer but apparently Krinaki is busy in the evenings and very popular with the locals. The waiter recommended the local specials ,... More

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
