Excellent brecky and ditto the lambs fry I really enjoyed it. Ordered minus capsicum and with side of spinach which was not over powering like lambert can be. Zeros has very attentive five good old fashioned service. We will come here again and try dinner as well. A great find.

Been going there at various intervals for maybe thirty years. A Greek family enterprise with many of the staff also members of the family. Good breakfast, lunch and dinner, with Greek, Australian and international dishes. Good selection of wines and great coffee.

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
