If you have been to Greece you will know this is not authentic. I don't know what they did to the poor Moussaka, very unfortunate (terrible). Nothing good to say about anything, we will not be returning.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.
