Great!

I went here with a group and friends and loved it. The rabbit was very good, and the tri-dip to start was also memorable.

Theo's is a great family Greek restaurant in Penticton. Prices are competitive (perhaps a little on the pricey side) but worth it. The owners provide a personal touch to their clients. The food quality is excellent, and if you are there in the right season, be sure to try the salad of the day. We had the purslane salad, with... More

I ate at Theo's with a larger group (9 people) and we all had a delicious meal. The service was prompt and they answered any questions we had immediately. The restaurant was packed but didn't feel cramped, it's a lovely space. We would definitely eat there again. Thanks also to our server, I believe her name was Connie, she was... More

Theo's is a large and impressive restaurant inside, but my dining partner and I opted to stay outside in the front courtyard where it was slightly warmer, unbelievably! The courtyard dining experience was charming and comfortable; my table mate and I supped and chatted through the summer warmth there as it faded to a shadowy, candle lit cave-like space under...

We came here for my mother in laws birthday, classy place, way out of my league that's for sure. The service was great, I'm not a fan of the food but that's just my own taste, the others all enjoyed it. Nice heritage building, much bigger and spread out than it appears from outside. Food was pleasantly presented and good... More

My initial impression of Theos was that is was pretty good----but because I found their houmous rather bland........I was less than enthusiastic. I went back (didn't have any houmous) and it was such a wonderful experience-------great food, great atmosphere, delightful server. We sat on their covered patio......and I like how they are as focused on the aural as the video------great... More

During a recent journey to Penticton for the Axel Merckx Grand Fondo, we had the pleasure of dining at Theo's. Even without a reservation, (recommended), we were greeted by Nicoll, son of the father of the family restaurant, who graciously attended to us with conversation and a glass of wine while we waited for a table. In no time at... More

We had dinner here on Canada Day, which was very hot but here nice & cool inside. This is a pretty big place, looks authentically rustic Greek & very busy. First class food & service & not expensive. We both had starters - garlic chilli prawn kalamari & mains - sole fillets & rosmary & lemon chicken & beers &... More

If i'm not mistaken, son of owner greeted us. We did not make reservation, but were offered place to wait. Waited few minutes and got two tables for 4. The order was processed quick, food is very exceptional, you feel like you in Greece. Pictures, photos, old cameras etc., plenty of space and a lot of guests! Highly recommend.
