Consistently great

I've been going to Xenos for the last 15 years or so, and will always go back. I've never had a bad experience with the food, service or staff, and can say that it is a consistently great cafe/restaurant.

Xenos never disappoints and is still one of our favourite spots, a lovely, friendly family restaurant with great food. We had a lovely lunch there today and always feel welcome. It makes no difference whether you are ordering a little or a lot, whether you are on your own or with a group, the friendly service is always assured. We... More

We were looking for somewhere with light meals on offer and Xenos has a wide range. Two salads with a beer each was average price at $57. Good quality food, reasonable size and attentive staff.

After a fabulous meal a few weeks back I had the opportunity to visit again last Saturday night. I still can't fault the food and a special big shout out to Phat, the waiter with the biggest smile and laugh. If in Crowss Nest make sure you don't go past here!!

We have been regular diners at Xenos for a number of years. Great for a family outing. Good food with decent servings and a kids menu. Whilst BYO the drinks menu is adequate and good value. We will be back again.

Xenos is a great Greek restaurant with extremely fresh and tasty sea food! I loved the calamari there! Seating outside in the afternoon, sipping crisp white wine and having some varieties of sea food while observing the people around - just the perfect way to spend the afternoon (especially if you have decided to skip lectures)! Don't miss out! And... More

Xenos has been around in its current location in Crows Nest for around forty years. I first visited it about 30 years ago when it had transitioned from a milk bar to a coffee lounge restaurant that made the best hamburgers in town. It has now grown and expanded into a wonderful full service Mediterranean restaurant and is still owned... More

My husband and I have been going to Xenos ever since we moved to Crows Nest, almost 5 years ago. Although we have since moved from the area, we still eat here every couple of months, and with good reason. We spent Fathers' Day lunch with my family here last Sunday, and all of the food was up to their... More

We recently went to Xenos for a family birthday dinner and had a really great night. The wide choice of meals meant there was something for everyone and all our meals certainly lived up to expectation. My husband and I love Xenos, and the rest of the family were immediate converts, promising to come back and work their way through... More

An institution in the area, for great Greek food and a large Australian menu too. Sit outside in the warmer seasons else naked sure inside
