“The most amazing sunset vantage point”
Reviewed 14 August 2014

During our honeymoon and on our last evening in Santorini, we loved watching the world's most amazing sunset from this vantage point in Oia!

Finikia's Place is arguably THE MOST AMAZING vantage point of all of Oia. And we tried a few.

The food and wine were also really really good, and the staff made us feel completely at ease.

A brilliant place for romance and celebrating marriage.

“Great stop for all meals!”
Reviewed 9 August 2014

Stayed in a house across the road from Finikia's for 4 days. We ate 4 meals there....breakfast, lunch and two dinners. We always went over after sunset (as we had a great view from our pool deck) but I suspect it would be a great place to view Oia and the sunset.

The food and service were excellent. The tempo of meals on Santorini is very relaxed and lots of time to chill after a good meal.

The price was very good and the food quality was excellent. Everyone in the family enjoyed the meals and the location and the kids always asked to go back.

The restaurant is well outside the madness of Oia (esp. around cruise ship/bus tour/sunset time).

The staff were very nice and chatty. Clearly some of the servers speak in excess of 4 languages!

“Love this place...”
Reviewed 6 August 2014 via mobile

We recently stopped off here along our way to Oia. We were just stopping for a quick bite of something and then planned to continue on to Oia to watch the sunset. The appetizers -mussels! -were so good that we decided to stay and have a full dinner instead. From the back deck we had an incredible view of the sunset. In addition the pricing was excellent. We spent 62 euros for 2 orders of the mussels (yes, we had to try both types), a seafood salad, a salmon entree, a pasta and seafood entree, and 2 beers each. Compared to the much higher prices in Fira, and the quality was much better. It might be a little off the beaten path, but it's a small island, so get out and find this place. This was the perfect find for a roadside stop off!

This restaurant is near Oia but away from the crowds. The sunset view is amazing. The food is fresh,traditional and Greek. The price is very reasonable and the service great and friendly.

“Food was good but service was a bit lacking...”
Reviewed 25 July 2014

We ate at Finikia twice and enjoyed the food and view and the location was convenient to where we were staying. Unfortunately the service was a bit lacking. We were traveling with children ranging in age from 6 to 13 and although we made sure to get out to restaurants before the crowds we found even with few people in the restaurant the service was slow and inattentive. The few patrons that arrived after us had there orders taken sooner and meals served before us - I get that meals are slower than what you experience in the US but this was a bit extreme.
