My first time dining at Theo's, atmosphere was great and staff were excellent but food was just okay. The tzatziki dip was not very tasty, maybe I ordered the wrong dish, my partners Rosemary Chicken was quite good.

Quaint little family restaurant on the edge of downtown Penticton. Excellent food and service. I have tried to stop in once a year when in town for the past 30 years. Always Excellent! I would recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a place to have a special occasion or just a family friendly meal. Souvlaki is amazing. Great wine... More

Theo's is a Penticton family tradition on all our Okanagan holidays. It has been owned by the same family for many years and they love to stop by and speak to their guests when possible. The food is delicious and quite authentically greek. They have all the traditional menu choices but they also have some great family recipes like the... More

Great service and food. The family who owns this restaurant really care about preparing great food. We had the lamb and rabbit and they were both cooked to perfection! The wonderful ambience only adds to the experience.

Went to Theo's on the recommendation of our wine tour guide. The restaurant itself is interesting, with a unique Greece-themed decor, but we didn't find it terribly clean or well maintained. It seemed dusty and a bit neglected. We were seated quickly enough, but after a long wait my wife had to head off to find menus. The service staff... More

My husband and I have been to this restaurant twice now. The food and the service are both awesome. I really love the lamb and my hubs am loves the rabbit. We sat outside and the atmosphere was great. Felt like we were in Greece. We will definitely be going back.

Wonderful atmosphere, excellent service, and the food was perfect. So glad we chose to have dinner here. Had the dolmathes which melted in our mouth, although they have an extensive BC Wine list still chose the Malbec and it was a perfect accompaniment. Our server Sara was very accommodating even though we shouldn't have ordered the steak because of oral... More

We once again had the pleasure of a fantastic dinner at Theo's Greek Restaurant in Penticton. If you haven't been to Theo's and you are in Penticton (or even near Penticton), you need to go. The food is delicious and authentic. It is served in a unique setting and depending on your mood or preference you can sit on a... More
