“Best little restaurant in Penticton!”
Reviewed June 27, 2014

We once again had the pleasure of a fantastic dinner at Theo's Greek Restaurant in Penticton. If you haven't been to Theo's and you are in Penticton (or even near Penticton), you need to go. The food is delicious and authentic. It is served in a unique setting and depending on your mood or preference you can sit on a nice patio with grapevines growing overhead, or a darker romantic inside corner table. Watching the staff pick fresh herbs from the garden for the Majitos, the smell of mint filled the air. Their staff are very friendly and make you want to come back (yay Sarah). In fact we went back twice on our last trip to Penticton. Souvlaki the first night, pan seared sole the 2nd. So delicious. They have a nice selection of wines and dessert to go (if you are to full from dinner). Can't wait to go back.

“you CAN go home again”
Reviewed June 20, 2014

The last time I ate at Theo's was 1992....the food was great, the atmosphere terrific and the service was wonderful. Now, more than 20 years later it is all still true! It is nice to know that great things don't change.

“as if you have gone to Greece”
Reviewed June 18, 2014

The décor, atmosphere, music and many of the staff give you the feeling like you have gone on a little holiday to Greece. It is very romantic and cozy. The food is usually awesome and good sized portions. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Quite often you are quickly greeted by one of the owners themselves.

I especially enjoyed their beef souvlaki. They also have one of the better wine selections compared to other places in Penticton.

I would definitely highly recommend this restaurant again.

Hi Lenore, glad to hear you had a lovely experience at our restaurant. I always enjoy hearing from our guests how our restaurant transported them, if only for a few hours, to relax in a setting reminding them of Greece. Thanks for the compliments, we'll keep playing our music, tending our grape vines, lovingly preparing our food and continue to expand our wine list featuring new and favourite Okanagan wineries. - Thanks!

“I will certainly go back”
Reviewed June 14, 2014

I found that theos was more than supper - it was a lovely experience - very friendly hosts, the food was very good - perhaps not the very best greek food I've ever had, but very good, and the atmosphere was lovely - we had beautiful full blown peonies on our table, the light in the restaurant from the skylights at all angles is lovely, the house wine was good.
