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!

We visited Theo's after a 20 kilometer race and thoroughly enjoyed our meals, service and atmosphere.

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 and sharing a small appy.
We chose the Greek platter for two. It had generous portions. But it seems to lack flavor and zip. The lamb chops were very tender, and the tzajiki was very tasty. Also, the starter sundried tomato dip for the buns was very yummy. The salad was disappointing. As was the rest of the platter, it was nothing to write home about. I overheard comments at the next table of another guest oohing and aahing over the delicious lamb who was soon told by his friend that he was eating beef and not lamb.

There was nothing wrong with any of the food, but for the price of the meal, I expect a little more zing for my dollar. Service was adequate.

The food is excellent. The service and ambiance is amazing. A bit pricey but fine dining. Greek food only.

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 was a great dinner
