Went to try the top rated restaurant in Penticton and the decor and layout is terrific. Tenderloin was very tender used in their beef Souvlaki. Mediterranean Back Ribs were the best I've had. Tzatziki was great. Down side of the meal was the plain rice pilaf...it was just rice on the plate...no pilaf. House red was not that good. Will... More

I had the special Heart salata and I asked the beautiful waitress if they could place beets on top and they did! My husband had rack of lamb; Darlene had lamb chops and organic chicken livers; Rod had steak and prawns. A meal which was really great for all of us!! Wonderful atmosphere with superb friends!!

I make it a point to eat at this restaurant at least once every time I am in Penticton. I take my family here for multiple meals when we vacation in Penticton...since 1999. This was the first time I did not enjoy the meal as the server was abrupt, crude and rude. She was nice to the other guests so... More

Hello, thanks for the review and for your phone call today about the service you received on your last visit. The server you mentioned is no longer working with us, but I do apologize for the service you received from her that evening. This was definitely not in keeping with our tradition of providing attentive and welcoming service in a... More

It's a well establish restaurant, but still traditional, modest, warm and unique. The place to bring your most important people for a comfortable evening. Always feel welcome and never feel rush to leave the table. Consistent in their food and services. I grew up raising and eating rabbit. Only at Teo's, I can find this tasteful memory. Go, and treat... More

This restaurant is large but still cosy, and service is fast and friendly. Unusually, in my experience of Greek restaurants, there were very few veggie options. I chose an appetiser instead. We had a great evening, but I would describe the food as unremarkable. My husband chose moussaka, and it rather looked dried out, as though it had been kept... More

This was our second time at Theo's and again, excellent experience. We had a selection of appetizers - especially the beans were something special, saganaki was brought to the table flaming, taramasalata was very good. The chicken liver did not turn out too well, and the server took it off the bill and we ordered something else. If they could... More
