Between Athens, Milos, and Santorini, so far this is the most authentic, best Greek food experience we have had so far. My husband and I shared about 700mg of the Lamb roasted on the spit, and it was incredible. So full of flavor and really worth every bite. We also had the grilled sausage and tzatziki for appetizers and they... More

Thank you Dimitri and Chef for an amazing culinary experience. Andrew and I thoroughly enjoyed eating at your Taverna and we can't wait to eat there again. From the moment we entered, we felt at home. The entree was amazing (cheese! And homemade sausage!) and our main course which was slow cooked lamb. The only disappointment was that we did... More

Greek tavern in the center of Finikia village, the boss is very nice, dishes are simple and tasty made with local ingredients. Home made Baklava is having cinnamon taste.

My boyfriend Danny and I visited Santorini last month for the first time. Of the many restaurants we were recommended by friends, family, locals, and our hotel staff who are particularly well known for their vast knowledge of the island, Krinaki was highlighted for those who are lamb lovers. Of course being in Greece, it was a MUST for us.... More

We stopped in Finikia just outside Oia and had the pleasure of visiting this little place. Whilst the main tourist area of Oia can be expensive, we got 3 courses and a bottle of wine for under 50 euros. Don't bother with the menu, just ask the waiter what his top 5 area. He was more than happy to help... More

This beautiful place really made my stay in Santorini. Tucked away in the streets of Finikia, we came for the food first and back 3 more times for the service. (And it helps that the food was incredible) The view is stunning and it feels like the true Greek experience. The host Dimitri was not only a laugh but also... More

Traditional Greek taverna in fabulous old settlement of Finikia with very friendly waiter Dimitri (knows all about English football) & good traditional food. Definately recommend for a local traditional Greek experience as opposed to very commercial Oia! We went for an early evening drink on our first evening & stayed 3 hours for dinner etc!

The waiter was extremely friendly recommending best dishes. The athmosphere was relaxed, the view on finikia was charming. We had an amazing burger. And a dying-for Baklava. Really. I was about to. I had two of those babies. And thanks a lot Dimitri for the homemade yoghurt. (And really cheap prices, btw)

I loved eating at Krinaki, the whole enviroment was like home, the food is fresh and greek traditional (not the traditional turist food) and the service is very very good. Finally the price is quite fair considering the high prices you will have in Oia.

The look and feel of this place is lovely, very homey. There is only one waiter who was running around looking after everyone but was great! Full of character. We had Fava and tomato fritters to start which were delicious, especially the Fava. Then the lamb spit for main which was huge! It was very tasty, full of flavour however... More
