Xenos has been our families favourite restaurant for more than 10 years. I have often taken work colleagues there as the food and wine is consistently excellent and generous.

The slow cooked meats here are simply divine. We came here twice for dinner as a couple, and I loved it so much that I chose to celebrate my birthday here too. Only downside (from one angle) is that due to its popularity and acoustics, the liveliness of the atmosphere can make conversation difficult... But I guess that ambience has... More

Thank you very much for taking the time and leaving feedback. Our goat dish is an old family recepie which we take much pride in making sure it is the same standard as it would be served on our family dinner table. Hope to see you again soon!!! More

I have dined here many times and it is my 'go to' restaurant whenever I have friends to entertain. Bookings are recommended as the place can get quite busy. The menu is varied and the food quality is consistent. Really nice for breakfast with a nice open ambience.

This is my fav place for breaky on the weekend. With a full variety of Big, Fancy, healthy or s down right hangover cure - Xenos is your best bet! Indoor or Outdoor seating, breakfast in the sun is the best!

Have been coming here many, many years. Where is Sydney can you go that delivers consistent food and beverage with great staff attending. The "Greekoctoberfest" last weekend just put the icing on the cake for me. Can wait to see if a permanent bar ensues.

Thank you for your continuous support over the years. Greektoberfest is always a fun day, we wish we could do it more often. Due to overwhelming demand, we are looking into making our draft beer a permanent fixture. Thank you again for your kind words. More

Xenon hosted an excellent Greektobetfest at the 2015 Crows Nest Fair. It got to be the most popular food stall with fantastic $7 giant German sausage roll or the $10 crisp pork belly roll. Service was friendly and fast. The German sausage tasted fantastic with Apple sauce. It was one of the best giant sausage sizzles I've had this year.

Hi and thank you for your positive feed back. We love to do Greektoberfest every year, it is a lot of fun!! We wish we could organise an event like this in Crows Nest every month!! We added a hint of German authenticity this year with help from Styuvesant House owners Rudy and Max Dietz. Hope to see you again... More

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.
