Theo's has never disappointed and that remains true today! The food and service is delightful! The Lamb Shoulder is as good as it gets. The greek salads are excellent. Our server was the best!

We walked through an unassuming facade into an inviting space with wonderful scents of wood smoke and roast lamb. Explore the resteraunt, not a bad seat there but reserve table 41. The staff was attentive and colourful. Oh and the food was amazing.

This place served such yummy food. The souvlaki was delicious. We also had the phyllo salmon which was out of this world. The appetizer platter with hummus and feta and olives etc was so good. The home made chocolate ice cream is rich and divine!!! Would highly recommend!

When I entered the first scent was wood burning, what a wonderful warm feeling. The service was very friendly, helpful and encouraging. The meal was very good, I ordered the filet of sole and it was amazing. I did look for lamb chops but was not on the menu so my choice with the fish was a good one.

Hello Lucienne, Thanks for your review, so glad to hear you enjoyed our wood burning fireplace, it's been burning there since opening night in 1976. The sole is indeed delicious and the good news is that we do in fact have the lamb chops you were looking for. "Paithaika" is a rack of New Zealand Spring Lamb cut into four... More

Delicious Greek food, and great atmosphere. Theos has been here since I moved to Penticton in 1990, and one of the most popular places in Penticton. Family owned with very nice atmosphere and food is great.

Went there for a staff function and the restaurant put out a a few platters of spanokopits, calamari, flat breads, dips, etc. Quality could best be described as "meh" as the spanokopits were like freezer section pita pockets filled with a non-descriptive white sauce, calamari were greasy & tasteless. Pretty hard to mess up flat bread which filled my gullet... More

Hi Andrew. Thanks for your review, I'm sorry to hear that you did not enjoy our appetizers. I just wanted to point out that the spinach pies and the cheese pies you had were not Cisco products as you have stated. Everything that we serve on our menu is made in-house by our wonderful team of food lovers. This includes... More

People love this restaurant but our experience was just ok, however we are vegetation which may be the reason why our meal was only mediocre.

Soups, kabobs & squid soo good, rib dishes looked amazing and ambience is just wonderful. From the outside, place looks small but once inside, you realize it is very spacious yet still fairly private for dining and lots of room for groups. A wonderful dining experience!

We had such friendly and helpful wait staff and an atmosphere that is comfortable and intimate, we couldn't help but have an enjoyable meal. The food was good - I wouldn't gush over it but won't knock it, it's simply what you'd expect from a decent place serving standard Greek food. Their wine selection is good and not badly priced.

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.
