La Casa’s Story


Welcome to La Casa Ouzeria Restaurant!

penticton greek restaurantJackie Portalakis emigrated in 1973 from the beautiful Island of Crete, Greece to Penticton. It was here in Penticton where they raised their three children, Kosta, Minas and Eftalia. As a family, in 1996 they opened the small quaint, cozy restaurant La Casa Ouzeria. With the support of many and a very loyal clientele they are excited to expand La Casa Ouzeria to their new location, 1090 Main Street.


La Casa Ouzeria is a place where people experience delicious food with rich laughter, where friends get together to enjoy a little or a lot, but most of all it’s a charming Casa filled with life’s pleasures.


The Portalakis family offers two types of fine cuisine, Greek & Italian. By specializing in traditional homemade dishes, La Casa Ouzeria will provide you with an experience you won’t forget. We invite you to let your mind and taste buds experience the sights and sounds of Europe!
