“Great Home Style cooking at reasonable price!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2013

We often have dinner at Spiro's and are never disappointed with the food. There are always generous portions at very reasonable prices! They have the best Beet salad and Chicken Livers in Penticton! Ask for the Calamari a la Grec next time (it's not on the menu) and you will be treated to the best calamari dish ever!

“Yummy yummy yummy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2013 via mobile

We very much enjoyed our dinners. We started with a tasty prawn appy, then my husband had the ribs and spaghetti, and I had the spinach pie. Food was delicious, service excellent, and menu diverse.

“New 5 seater in house bar”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2013

What a great idea,,,, SPIRO has done it again.. A quaint little bar inside his restaurant . The best food... The best hospitality and the most unique atmosphere in Penticton. I really enjoy visiting the Cubby Hole... Keep up the surprises

“Best kept secret in Penticton.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2013

If you want REALLY good food, good service fair prices, don't miss this place. Spiro has a longstanding reputation for AMAZING dishes....try the Calamari! It is small, so I would recommend reserving, especially on Friday nights...

“Nice Atmosphere, but food quality was uneven.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013

We went there for a late lunch.

The pluses: A fantastic seafood chowder. And the waitress was very friendly.
The minuses: Food took a really long time...and we were virtually the only customers there. And it would have been nice to have some bread or something to ward off starvation while waiting. My partner's lamb souvlakii was tough. My curry chicken was quite ordinary.......it tasted like the curry that you often get at greasy spoons where they just dump some curry powder in a sauce. Not sure what was "greek" about it.

I found that the food in other Greek restaurants in town (eg. Mykonow, Athena's Kitchen) is better and cheaper.
