Thanks to Theo 

Named to honour the memory of Theo Xenophou, who passed away in 2023, Thanks to Theo is a loud and boisterous celebration of Greek and Cypriot food, which is translated directly into the flavour of the dishes served up here.

Think prawn zucchini flower dolmades, spanakopita with wild greens and feta, rounds and rounds of whipped sesame and tarama dip with housemade pita, and slow cooked lamb shoulder with braised eggplant. This modern Greek restaurant in Adelaide is all about celebrating friends, family and a love of food, and the dishes here are made to share.

You'll feel as though you're in the Mediterranean when you dine here - and we couldn't be more here for it!
