We enjoyed the pasta dishes. And this place serves a very delicious Greek dessert - Baklava!
The only downside was that we were seated at a patio facing the main road. The view wasn't good at all.

It started with a white dinner roll is a very poor tasting olive oil. We ordered chicken souvlaki and calamari dinner. Calamari had absolutely no taste. Chicken terrible. Vegetables were frozen from a package - middle of Okanagan and frozen veggies in August.

We ordered our food - saganaki, greek salad and filet of sole. We were surprised that they brought out our salads before the saganaki, which came almost immediately after. The saganaki (fried cheese with brandy and lemon) was delicious but we felt a bit rushed and the table was a bit overcrowded with all the salads, while we tried to eat the cheese before it cooled. In any case, the salad was one of the best greek salads we've ever had (full of fresh and plentiful vegetables). My husband especially loved the big pieces of feta instead of the crumbled kind you usually get on a greek salad. Our main dish was amazing! The sole (2 good size pieces) was impeccably done - not mushy or dried out - and came with carrots, rice and potato. Not a huge amount of any individual thing but more than enough all together (and we're big eaters). We liked it so much that we went back the next night and were again pleased with the experience (had the same food:). We vacation in Penticton every summer from Calgary (have been for 20+ years) and one of our favourite parts of the vacation is dining out and trying different restaurants. We definitely look forward to eating there again next year - God willing!!!

The food is ok...atmosphere was casual. Our waitress was very nice even though she was clearly swamped, however, it kind of put a damper on everything, because she would just drop and go. It was a good thing we made reservations because there was a line, however, we were expecting much more based on the ratings from TripAdvisor.

Don't go in with high expectations otherwise you'll leave disappointed. Try Spiro's Cubby Hole instead if you want something different and better food.

We live in the area and have always gone to La Casa Ouzeria for special occasions and entertaining out of town guests. The food is always delicious and the service is great. I order a totally greek meal and my husband orders Italian and we're never disappointed. A wonderful dining experience. We had one alcohol drink, appetizer, dinner and dessert for the 2 of us for $86. including taxes good value for a better restaurant.
