“Surprising”
Reviewed June 9, 2014

Really enjoyed a light lunch at Xananas as it seems rather unassuming from the outside. Service was prompt and friendly and the food itself was lovely. Portions are generous for the price and everything arrived hot, well cooked and delicious. A must for a students on campus or people passing through Coventry/Warwickshire area for a quick lunch.

“Good food, good value.”
Reviewed May 4, 2014

The best food at the University is served at Xananas. It's always packed and has a good atmosphere and the food is good value for money.

“Pleasant lunch”
Reviewed April 13, 2014

Had lunch at Xananas when taking my daughter back to uni. Service was fast and food good - shared starter, 2 mains and 2 drinks for £26. Would recommend if, like me, you're passing through, but not for a special occasion.

“Nice food, friendly service, very limited wine choice”
Reviewed October 1, 2013

Restaurant run by the student union. The food is on the good side of reasonable in quality. Service was good with a particularly helpful waitress Jess who gave some great advice to our 1st year son. Which was a nice touch. It was not quite fine dining but on the whole we had a pleasant meal and enjoyed our time at the restaurant. If I could give 3 .5 stars I would as it is better than average but just short of very good. I would go back though.

“A good restaurant on campus”
Reviewed June 26, 2013

One good thing about Warwick University is that it has quite a wide range of restaurants and cafes, different in price and the style of food. Even though Xananas is located at the very heart of the campus, hiding on the upper floor of the Rootes Building, it serves proper restaurant-quality dishes at a restaurant price. There is not a huge menu to choose from, but the foods sound and look amazing, from a wild mushroom ravioli pasta to a braised lamb shank - something a little more exciting than our ordinary pub grub. The dishes taste very nice, although there is a little room for improvement. Starter dishes are around 4-5 pounds while the main cost 8 pounds and beyond. Warwick students can get a discount if paying by the uni card. Overall, the staff seems nice and friendly. The interrior decoration is nothing special but there are both small dining tables and comfy couches, if you want to hang out as a group. I went there for lunch, so the place was not so busy. I will visit again when I am tired of the canteen food.
