It's liking going back in time, It hasn't changed since the first time I went in the 70's. Great atmosphere and service. I had the ribs and my wife had the lamb chops, both were excellent. They even gave us a complimentary dessert, after finding out it was my wife's birthday. Two thumb's up.

Such a charming venue. You actually feel like you're in Greece. Very eclectic. Lots of local wines on the wine list. Adored the sundried tomatoes in the olive oil. The rabbit was a generous portion which could feed me for 2-3 meals, not that I have a huge appetite and the baklava was delicious too!

I'm a big fan of Greek food, but I think I enjoy my own version of a Greek meal better than the restaurant version. Of course, the atmosphere in my home does not compare with that of Theo's. We were seated at a tiny table, despite having reservations. It would have been an adequate size for two having a drink... More

Well prepared...good quality in a very relaxed family atmosphere, I ate there alone and felt like I knew the waitress for years , the owner or manager greeted the locals on first name basis, I requested for lean lam shoulder and the cooks removed some of the heavy fat, all tasted like home cooking...good wine from the area and it...

From the moment you enter this restaurant you will feel like you have stepped into a little Greek village. The service and menu are both wonderful.

Hi, thank you for your review. I was sorry to hear you were disappointed with some of your meals, though pleased to hear you thought the ribs were awesome and that everyone liked the spinach pie and the calamari. We use a New York Cut of Alberta Certified Angus beef for our steaks so the steak should definitely have been... More
