Theo's is a family run Greek restaurant which opened in 1976. We use fresh produce from our garden when available and work with our local farmers and suppliers in the Okanagan valley to provide a menu which is both rooted in Greek village cooking and inspired by Okanagan ingredients.

If I am ever asked what my favourite restaurant is in Penticton, for the 15 years that I have lived here, it has been Theo's. The food is excellent and the atmosphere is cozy. I switched to a gluten free diet 3 years ago and found to my surprise that Theo's has a gluten free menu. The service is great... More

One of the best Greek restaurants I ever been so far. Authentic, fresh Greek dishes, prepared and served by friendly staff in a very nicely way decorated restaurant in down town Penticton.

We decided last minute to go and try this great restaurant and all really enjoyed it. The atmosphere was great, the food was great and the service was great. One recommendation would be to make reservations as the line up is always long.

This is one of my favourite restaurants in British Columbia... the food is great, but what just completely finishes the experience is the passionate, richly detailed, exuberance of "Greek" that seeps from every pillar, cushion and cranny of the establishment. There are so many spaces to choose from, and once one is finally settled, the best thing is that the... More

we have dined at Theo's several times and have never had a bad meal or unacceptable service. Meals are reasonabley priced with a full wine list. The atmosphere in the restaurant is like being in Greece. Staff are very friendly and helpful and they do not rush you to finish. We take visitors to Penticton and our family when ever... More

I have been going to Theo's since my brother had a pre-wedding dinner there in the late 70's and the food is always good. I had the calamari dinner, it was the best calamari I have had in ages! Not overdone and rubbery, nice and tender and served with greek rice and veggies. My spouse had the ribs and he... More

Under the skylights you'd think you were in an outside courtyard or you can sit in the cozy 'cave' like areas by a fireplace. Ambiance is great. The four of us ordered seven appies and Greek Salads. What a taste sensation! The meals at other tables looked great and if the appies were any indication they were probably good too.
