Serves standard good food. Lovely and warm sitting on footpath with sun streaming in, in spite of it being a winter's day. Good burgers for lunch.

This family-run Greek restaurant never disappoints. We have been for breakfast, lunch and dinner on various occasions with and without small children. The staff are friendly, there is a huge menu to choose from and the coffee is top notch. The slow-roasted lamb is fantastic.

They have the best Lambs Fry. Not everyone's choice but we love it. The brekkie corn dish is also a favourite. Plus many more we have tried. Great coffee. Can order from either brekkie or lunch menu at lunch time..A favourite on our way home to Newcastle.

Xenos has generous serving sizes which suitably match the prices you pay. The food was delicious and the lamb so soft and tender. The service at Xenos was sufficiently attentive but not too full on. The restaurant itself wasn't busy at the time, so it was pretty easy to get the attention of the waitress as needed. The restaurant is... More

A large restaurant on a street corner near Willoughby St. There is some outdoor seating but it may be encased in clear plastic sheeting in winter. Tables are a little too close together. Brunch was average - a $20 omelette was bland and overpriced smoothies were just like milkshakes with little fruit in them.

We have always wanted to try Xenos as we like Greek food, especially slow roasted lamb. Booked for a Saturday night. Arrived and received not the friendliest of greetings! Shown to table. This is not a flash place at all, but always busy and you would go for the food, not the surroundings. Took a while for someone to take... More

As a local Xenos has been around for a long time so must be doing something right, just wish I knew what as I have been a number of times and find average at best. Service my wife & I find really poor, no smiles, hard to get attention or served without waiving your arms around. Food is ok but... More
