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

The last time I ate at Theo's was 1992....the food was great, the atmosphere terrific and the service was wonderful. Now, more than 20 years later it is all still true! It is nice to know that great things don't change.

The décor, atmosphere, music and many of the staff give you the feeling like you have gone on a little holiday to Greece. It is very romantic and cozy. The food is usually awesome and good sized portions. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Quite often you are quickly greeted by one of the owners themselves. I especially enjoyed... More

Hi Lenore, glad to hear you had a lovely experience at our restaurant. I always enjoy hearing from our guests how our restaurant transported them, if only for a few hours, to relax in a setting reminding them of Greece. Thanks for the compliments, we'll keep playing our music, tending our grape vines, lovingly preparing our food and continue to... More

I found that theos was more than supper - it was a lovely experience - very friendly hosts, the food was very good - perhaps not the very best greek food I've ever had, but very good, and the atmosphere was lovely - we had beautiful full blown peonies on our table, the light in the restaurant from the skylights...
