Theo's is a family run Greek restaurant which opened in 1976. We use fresh produce from our garden when available and work with our local farmers and suppliers in the Okanagan valley to provide a menu which is both rooted in Greek village cooking and inspired by Okanagan ingredients.

I was visiting friends in Penticton and wanted to take them out for a special 91st birthday. We chose Theo's as it had great reviews, we were not disappointed. The service was quietly efficient, the food was gloriously Greek and they have a wonderful wine list. Try the rabbit, you will not be... read more

This is the place to take your visitors for lunch or dinner as the food is always tasty, service pretty quick & the ambience is special! Makes you feel like you have dropped in on Greece! They prepare all the Greek dishes & offer sample platters for sharing if you have trouble making up your mind! I always enjoy their... More

My Wife and I went to Theos for linner, Which is the afternoon version of Brunch. Its a late lunch and early dinner. Anyway, it was not our first time there and I am pleased that the food, and service was stellar. Its a really pleasant and warm environment. My favourites are the Lamb Shoulder dinner and the Mediterranean Ribs.... More

My husband & I stopped in for lunch & we're delighted at how welcoming the interior is. The staff were friendly, the environment warm & the food was delicious! I had the Rosemary chicken with a glass of local merlot & my husband had the Greek salad with a local ale. We were both very happy with the whole experience... More

Went here for dinner as my wife had lived in Penticton years ago and had fond memories. It was busy. Kitchen was out of quite a few things. Food was decent but not exceptional. Calamari was disappointing. Pricing on bread dips was very high. Portions were fine with an appetizer but not big. Staff was courteous. Not what was remembered.

We've been there four times. The food was good last night but the service was not. The server was tardy in getting our drinks even though it wasn't busy. She never checked to see how we liked our meals and brought our bill without asking if we wanted anything else. The room was drafty and we were cold. When we... More

Theos is the place to go when taking out of towners or that special someone out to a cozy and tasy dining experience. I have never been disappointed yet!

We've gone here for 32 years, and it's a must-stop in the Okanagan. Fabulous food (everything, but especially the vegetarian Dolmades), staff are great, and on a cold night a table by the fireplace is the most cozy spot in Western Canada.

If you want to pretend you are in Greece... when you cant actually "Be" in Greece.. this is the place to go:) The food is fabulous.... from its traditional family greek dishes.... to some new locally grown family additions. Passionate, family run... more than a restaurant. This is a home away from home. Theo, Nikos & family make you feel... More
