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 you like lamb and atmosphere, you'll love Theo's.. Had the lamb shoulder there 2 weeks before Christmas and like always, it was superb... The service, the wine list and the food is outstanding. Highly recommend it..

We went there for our forth time. We had reservations. When we asked for a table next to the fireplace was told it wasn't available. When I asked how to reserve it because we would love to sit there sometime Theo ,the owner, overheard and made sure we sat there. They make everyone feel welcome as if it's their own... More

We were here for a dinner with another couple in September and again I was with my friend for lunch in early November. I love the old world look and the many nooks where one can sit and enjoy conversation over a good meal. It is wheelchair accessible and seats quite a number. You are always greeted warmly upon entering... More

We ate at Theo's often when we lived in Penticton and its our top choice whenever we return. The great experience starts with a warm welcome as you enter, and usually ends with a great special coffee. Never have had food that was not above and beyond.

Theo's always meets or exceeds our expectations for service and good food. Soon after entering the restaurant you are ported to a homey restaurant in Greece. The staff is always friendly and attentive, even when the restaurant is nearly full. The food is great, loved the souvlaki as well as the calamari.

My wife and I came to the Okanagan in search of possibly purchasing a B&B. We ate out all over, but nothing quite compared to our Theo's experience. The food was amazing- we had the uvetsi and shared the lamb souvlaki. Being in the restaurant was like being in a little villa in Greece. Our server, Bailey, was pleasantly wonderful... More

We were in Penticton last weekend and enjoyed Theo's immensely. The space is a beautiful whitewashed restaurant that feels homey and comfortable. At night it's beautifully lit with candles to make it feel like you're away on a vacation. The food was delicious. The staff was wonderful. I felt like we were in a different country. If I lived here... More
