Theo's has always been one of our favourite places for Greek food in Penticton. Since our Greek restaurant (Talo's) closed many years ago, we often drive to Penticton just to go to Theo's. Good prices too!

Had a superb meal here - huge portions, beautifully cooked. Only disappointment was that they'd sold out of out first choices on the menu but we're very helpful suggesting alternatives

We enjoyed a very tasty and filling meal and had to come back the next day for dessert, as we had no room left. The Macedonian cheese, moussaka and lamb shoulder were perfect. We had a very enjoyable chat with Niko, who told us his family's story of dedication and love that went into creating this special restaurant over the... More

Always a great meal and service. The platter is my favorite thing to order, you get a little bit of everything and there is always enough left over for lunch the next day. Theo's is a Penticton Landmark.

Theos feels like many of the restaurants and pubs I have eaten at in Greece. Big beams, plaster walls, traditional wall hangings, traditional photos and plants. The food from the large menu is superb. I particularly recommend the lamb shoulder, the Kalamari and the Moussaka. The Taramasalata is as good as any you would get in Greece. Or if you... More

Hello BC Roamer. Thank you for the kind words! It's true, I've watched my father, Theo, be hugged and kissed often as guests return through the front door and see him sitting in his favourite chair. My parents opened up Theo's in 1976 and I've noticed over the last (almost) four decades, that both he and my mother Mary have... More

We recently discovered this place after living in the Okanagan for five years. I wish we had found it sooner. The food is very good and plentiful, wonderful ambiance and friendly, funny staff. We have eaten here twice now and will definitely return. The food is homestyle Greek and delicious. I tried the rabbit dish that was amazingly flavourful and... More

Hello BeatzWorking, thanks for your kind words. I love the "Date Night" idea! If you want to have even more fun, ask about reserving the Romeo and Juliet table, a little spot for two that overlooks our courtyard. You'll see many hearts and initials carved into the wooden doors going back almost four decades, so next time your hungry, bring... More

Great food super hosts and very nice ambiance. Feels like going back to Greece with the greenery, music, food and people. Highly recommend and say hi to Theo and Niko. Summer time outside in the patio is very nice. Inside by the fire in the winter after skiing also very nice. Shannon's cannon is also a great after dinner drink
