No matter what time of the day, what the weather is like, what mood we are in or the state of our budget, there is something on offer at Xenos. We have eaten at Xenos at various times over the years and recently have chosen this lively restaurant three times in the past two months. Why? For all the reasons... More

Despite being busy the service was great and meals arrived swiftly. Steak had nice flavours but a little over done.

I was delighted to find good old fashioned Lamb's Fry and bacon on the huge menu. It was cooked to perfection. So succulent and the sauce was amazing. The rye toast serviced with it was a great complement. It was a large serve so I could finish it all. I'll definitely have it again. Great coffee and friendly service. While... More

Xenos is a good traditional restaurant with an extensive menu and good service. The lamb dishes are very yummy, and my husband ate dick last time which he really enjoyed. Service is helpful without being annoying.

We walked up to Crows Nest to grocery shop and wanted a light lunch. Xenos is a good "go to" for small or large meals. For us, the lamb and chicken wraps for perfect. In the past, we have enjoyed breakfast at Xenos.

I've eaten here for 10+ years. Not as good as it used to be. The pate was fantastic. Great mix of flavours. Scrumptious. I had spaghetti seafood. Bland, no intensity to the flavour. I added pepper (a lot), salt & lot of grated parmesan & it was just ok (now rates 6 out of 10). Oh... the prawns had good... More

Yes Xenos is predictable but that seems to be one of the secrets to their success. They are a no frills restaurant but the quality of food is excellent and always reliable

Xenon has been a feature in Crows Nest, on Sydney's Lower North Shore, for many years. I've been a few times and have enjoyed each visit, including a lunch last week with old friends. Service is excellent and the quality of the food - Greek or Australian contemporary - is first class. It is open long hours - have even... More

Having dined here for the last 25 years, Zenos is well known in the Crows Nest area, catering for lunch and dinner, and is never empty. The food, traditionally Greek, has a very home cooked and served feel to it, from the BBQ Octopus right through to the Souvlaki, you will never regret any meal had there. Situated either indoor...
