Make sure to make reservations as Theo's is deservedly very busy. Most romantic table is the Romeo&Juliet balcony in courtyard. We shared the saganaki and split the roast lamb shoulder dinner. More than enough for two. Lamb was very moist and tender. Right up there with dinners enjoyed in Athens last fall. You will not be disappointed.

This place is so cool. Great restaurant design with lots of history about it but most of all great food! We looked around the restaurant because we were admiring the design and coziness of it. It feels like I am attending that wedding scene in Mama Mia! So cool! Great place to eat when you are in Penticton. Thanks to... More

The service was excellent from the time my sister and I arrived to the time we left. Our meal served hot and it tasted great. We had a wine paring that complimented the chicken kebobs we had. We enjoyed the ambience of the restaurant and would recommend it highly. For a restaurant near the downtown, it had plenty of parking... More

So many great bites starting with a shared Cretan salad followed by hummus. I went for the wild salmon in phyllo while he went for the beef souvlaki - enjoyed both with a NK'MIP Pinot Noir. Tempted and fell for a great pastry to share for dessert. Nice walk over from the Lakeside Resort.

Great decor, warm ambiance, and friendly service. We only shared a salad and a couple of appetizers, but portions were very generous and everything was delicious.Will visit again on our next time to Penticton.

This is must a must go to place every time I'm in Penticton. There lamb is excellent and it's one of the few places that serve rabbit. Friendly staff and sitting in their plant covered patio area adds to the enjoyment.

We go there often. We love the decor. Waiters are always friendly and helpful. Food is mostly good. The rabbit is a favorite of my husband. I love the beet salad.

Love Greek food, but find most Canadian restaurants dumb-down on the spice --garlic, cinnamon, etc., and lacks real Greek flavors -- but not Theo's. Every time we visit Penticton, it is a must stop. Lamb is always excellent. Corkage fee of $20.00 is standard, and given wine selection, it is recommended to BYOB for that extra special night! Service is... More

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.
