This restaurant has been open for over 30 years. I remember first going here at age 16 and loving it. The atmosphere is very much like European restaurants. The service is good. The food is good. The lamb, fillet of sole and chicken souvlakie were all very tasty and filling. Read the little story just inside the menu. It will... More

I was pleasantly surprised by this place. The atmosphere makes this place somewhere to visit more than once. Our Kiwi server was knowledgeable about the menu amd the food was delicious. Try the Greek platter for two, we couldn't finish it as there was plenty. I don't often give a really high rating however this was exceptional.

We had an excellent meal and experience at Theo's. Our planned party of 8 grew to 11 during the meal, and everyone was accommodated efficiently and with aplomb by the staff. The food was uniformly delicious, and the specialties were special! Would recommend to all, and we look forward to our next visit!

When friends asked me to join them for dinner at Theo's I had a stunning experience at this small, authentic Greek Restaurant off Main Street. Great atmosphere, lot of privacy and wow, what food. Highly recommend this unique little restaurant in downtown Penticton.

After discovering this gem a few years back, my family and I always return to it year and year. On my most recent visit, it was for a friends birthday. Being a Saturday night, we made reservations and boy am I glad we did! We arrived just before the dinner rush which practically filled every available table in the house!... More

"Like walking into a different country" my wife said as we walked through the doors of this marvelous restaurant! Service, ambiance, price and presentation was second to none, one of the finest meals we have had in a long time. I had the Greek omelette and my wife the phyllo salmon, simply outstanding. Sitting their enjoying the music, the friendly... More

Went to Theo's yesterday for my birthday lunch with my friend. It was very relaxing, really good food and excellent service. We were there for awhile visiting and no-one rushed us out. Would for sure return.

The food and main server were excellent. The owner even assisted with details. We were accommodate on short notice for a party of 8, Peachfest week.My mom's birthday. One server who passed by and offered service was cheeky,failed humor(terrible really lol). But all in all totally happy and would definitely recommend Theo's. Wonderful atmosphere as well.

Stopped in for diner without a reservation. They were booked out but managed to fit us in. The meal was tasty, flavourful and tender. Well worth a visit.
