In a world where everything comes pre-packaged at your local eatery, it's such a joy to find a place that makes its own sauces and sources great local products to make a high-quality cuisine in a rustic European family setting. Part Greek, part Italian, with the usual choice of dishes that are crowd pleasers. We had the lasagna (so good) and some pasta, but the star was the Feta and olive appie... Macedonian Feta that is so creamy you want to smother your pasta in it! A great meal out. More...

This is our new favourite restaurant. We had a fabulous dinner there tonight. Our waiter, his name is Ross. Can't say enough about him. He was helpful, cheerful, just wonderful. The food was amazing. We had the seafood plater. Is was great. Delicious. It is a bit pricey but well worth the cost. Thank you for a lovely evening. More...

My co-worker and I treat ourselves to the "lunch hour quickie" regularly and highly recommend the spanakopita and greek salad! Tonight 7 of us went to celebrate my parents 52nd wedding anniversary. Our waitress Shayna was excellent! Without a reservation we were sat quickly, our drink order taken and delivered while we looked at the menu. Shayna was efficient, polite, and catered to my children's requests of multiple pop refills. The warm buns with dip were the perfect appie while we waited for our food. The food was served in a timely manner, was excellent and the portion sizes very generous. My only regret was that I didn't have room for tiramisu!! Next time I'll order it to go!! Great atmosphere, great people, great food! Highly recommended! More...

AMAZING FOOD! Tried this restaurant for the first time and was not disappointed! Ample parking in back. Handicapped space. They specialize in authentic Greek and Italian cuisine and it's all about flavor and presentation. The menu has many choices and options and everything is moderately priced. Extensive wine list. Many of their dishes can be prepared for Vegetarians/Vegans. Very friendly, informative staff. Your dining experience is pleasant and begins with your table candle lit and beverages served. To start and included with your meal is fresh baked buns with a balsamic vinegar and olive oil dipping bowl. Nice variety of salads and starter plates. They have theme nights that feature their top dishes at a reduced price ie Rib Night. Very generous portions on every plate. Our table enjoyed Greek and Caesars salads, Spaghetti, full rack Baby Back Ribs (fall off the bone so delicious and tender!), Lobster, Baked Wild Pacific Salmon, Lasagne, and Suvlaki. Everything was divine and a party for the taste buds! Desserts are a generous portion. I recommend the Tiramasu! I also recommend making reservations as this restaurant is filled to capacity during the dinner hour. And I highly recommend this restaurant! 5 Stars from me! More...

It doesn't get much more authentic than this place. Do not be deceived by the slightly run down exterior, this place is a jem. Food was fantastic, literally made in front of you by the owner and his wife who are a lovely couple. good to note this place is cash-only so if you're like me and don't carry cash there is an RBC down the street...well worth it.

Still one of our favourites here in Penticton. We've been patrons of this restaurant in their current building, and a smaller one they had many years ago. Food has always been true to their Greek roots, with many classic dishes that continue to satisfy even the most critical of foodies. I'm always happy with their vegetarian choices, and have heard kind words from my dining companions on their meat dishes. More...

We also were in La Casa when the customer Marlene Wycherley (whom left a 1 star review because she was unable to use an expired gift certificate) was unbelievably rude to the lovely server, owner, and other customers enjoying them selves. I would like to say that management and the staff handled this embarrassing customer with the utmost respect even though she obviously has no idea what the rules and regulations are. Thanks again La Casa for a wonderful lunch and we will be back for sure!!! Cant beat the ribs More...

I went there for the first time just after Christmas. I had tried to go several times in the past but it could never seem to get there when they were open. Sometimes it seemed odd that they were closed, like a Saturday afternoon on a long weekend. Anyway, finally made it and ordered the special: lamb shoulder, marinated the day before in lemon mustard sauce and grilled slowly all day. Honestly it was the best lamb I've ever eaten. My friend tried and bite and wished he had ordered it too. Totally worth the $25. Service was also excellent and speedy. Loved everything about our time there. More...

Absolutely the best Greek food I've had, by far! We were visiting Penticton for a few days, and after realizing how busy the town was, we decided to make dinner reservations to ensure that we would be on time for our concert. After looking though local travel magazines, we decided that La Casa Ouzeria suited us best.We shared the Ouzeria platter, which was massive. What a great variety! Greek salad, kalamari, spanakopita, beef souvlaki, rice pilaf, lemon potato, lamb, dolmades, and moussaka. We had leftovers for days! But it was absolutely delicious!!Service was excellent, and the prices were quite reasonable. Under $60 for two (dinner) with wine and that platter. Not too bad. Although, I'm not searching for the best value when I'm on holiday.Our fist dinner and leftovers were so good, we went back a second time for a lighter dinner. Just moussaka and saganaki. Again, excellent food! The hostess remembered us, and the server, although different from the one the night before, was just as good. I will make a point of visiting La Casa Ouzeria next time I'm in the Penticton area. Without a doubt, the best meal(s) we had on our vacation! More...

We have been numerous times over the years and they never disappoint.My wife who could not make it to dinner was in the Hospital. I ordered a salad to go for her and when I arrived at the hospital, we noticed that our server had put in some extra stuff as a care package. What a wonderful gesture. The Pita bread and baklava were surely not needed, but loved nonetheless. More...

My husband and I absolutely LOVE La Casa Ouzeria. They have some of the best food in the entire Penticton area and have the best service. Minas and Lia are two of the (grown) children and work in the restaurant. We've had the opportunity and pleasure to eat in their restaurant four times during our two visits to Penticton for Ironman. We found the restaurant in 2011 when we volunteered for Ironman Canada. We ate Pastitsio and hummus w/ pita on our first visit last year. Lia was our server and was fantastic! The Pastitsio consists of penne pasta with a bechamel sauce and is layered with a meat sauce and feta cheese. It's baked in the oven, so it has a crispy top layer. Delicious! The pita is thick and chewy. We ate there a second time that trip because the food was so amazing. The second time around, we both ordered some sort of pasta dish. I think we had alfredo with chicken and veggies tossed in. The pasta tasted fresh (not dry). Perfection. Lia gave us baklava and tiramisu on the house. I can only speak to the baklava. Best baklava I have ever had. It's flaky, buttery, sweet. So decadent. So rich. For the past year, I have been craving the baklava and pastitsio. We came back this year to compete in Ironman Canada. Getting to the restaurant before they closed at 10pm was more motivation to finish the race faster! I remember running by the restaurant on my way to finish thinking how good dinner was going to taste. After corralling through the athlete area, getting a post-race massage and gathering our bikes and gear bags, we headed over to Casa Ouzeria. We made it at 9:48pm. Minas said they just turned off the appliances in the kitchen, but he was still able to serve us dinner! He sat us and was our personal server. It was phenomenal. He served us rolls with balsamic and olive oil. We happily ate our pastitsio and Greek salad. Yum! We love this place so much that we went back Monday night (second night in a row). My husband ate the pastitsio again. I ordered the garlic prawns. It consisted of six grilled prawns on a bed of rice with half a roasted potato and seasonal veggies. The shrimp/prawns came with a garlic butter sauce. I forgot to use it until the very end. That garlic butter sauce was the best part of the plate. It definitely added great flavor to the shrimp and rice. Veggies were fresh, potato was seasoned and crisp on the outside and the shrimp was tasty! I hardly ever eat shrimp, so I figured I should order some while I'm on vacation. Lia was a server that second night. She really gets to know her customers. When she came up to our table, she recognized us from the year before. She was like, "Oh my goodness! How are you guys?" Their entire family is so welcoming and kind. We really appreciate their hospitality and kindness. Minas, Lia and the rest of the Portalakis, we will be back again! To everyone else who lives in or is visiting Penticton, go eat at La Casa Ouzeria! More...

I read a few reviews about the place and all of them was on the dot. The decor was cozy, service was VERY hospitable and the food was delicious! We had the Tri Dip to start and just to warn you that you'll need to order more pita bread cause it won't be enough but it's worth it.I ordered Solomos and my girlfriend ordered the Penne Alla Suzana, both of our dishes were great! Mine was a special which was wrapped in Phyllo but it made it even better.I highly recommend this place, you won't be disappointed. More...
