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

Been here dozens of times - food is consistently great - generous helpings and always tastes so nice and fresh. Lovely atmosphere and it is great they are open when everything else is shut. However this would always be my first choice. Just one little let down - some of the staff can be a bit surly and if you... More

Good straight forward food. Moussaka was good. Chicken snitzel was dry & thin. Maybe they could not beat it so thin next time, chicken is not expensive (it was one third meat & two thirds crumbs by thickness). Pork belly had good flavour but was a bit tough. Had to chew really hard to break den the mouthfuls. Maybe cook... More

I have been to Xenos at least 6 times. I have always found the staff to be friendly, the service quick but not intrusive. Love the food and informal atmosphere! This time I was with a group of 6, all enjoying the various meals we had. I had the lamb shanks, the meat was done perfectly, falling of the bone.... More
