We were visiting from Singapore - my father-in-law recommended this old favorite restaurant of his. All 5 of us had different lamb dishes and we were absolutely blown away by the food, and the excellent service. In fact, it was one of the best waiting service we have experienced - waiters were friendly, knowledgable, observant (any one waiter not just the waitress serving us) would continuously be removing used dishes and clearing our table or topping up the water every time they walked by. Not obtrusive, but very efficient and professional. Much appreciated.

Thinking I wouldn't be able to fit in dessert, i agreed to share but when the sticky date pudding and lemon tart arrived, it was gone in an instant! Will definitely return for more.

Xenos is our 'go to' restaurant whenever we feel like an enjoyable breakfast, lunch or dinner out. The service is always friendly and efficient and the quality of the food excellent. The place is so popular, it is always buzzing and there are times when it is hard to find a table. But they always seem to squeeze us in somehow. To be honest, we just love Xenos and are glad it is an institution in Crows Nest, because we plan to keep going for years and years. Two of our favourites are the Greek style grilled snapper and the lamb wrap, but we have never been disappointed by any of the meals on the wide menu. They always fill the wine glass with a generous amount - the sign of a really great establishment in our book! No skimping here! The waiters seem to be genuinely happy to be there and we love the fact that we are always welcomed with a warm smile.

My favourite dish is the mousakka which is always well made. Apart from that, the remaining dishes are just OK, nothing special.

Service, as is the case in many places in Sydney, is just average. Would only recommend it if you happen to be in the area, otherwise much better places to eat.
