Had family dinner at Xenos. Great variety of options (not all Greek) to satisfy everyone. Portion sizes are large and prices reasonable. Kids menu has enough options for the kids to choose from. Small wine list but covers most varieties and good range of prices. Great family restaurant.

Fantastic breakfast menus with all the favourites plus some Greek options. Service was quick and efficient, the food was fast and fresh ... highly recommend :) Try the Grandmas Greek Eggs - delicious with a side of bacon!

Visited for a late lunch and really enjoyed our meal. Veal schnitzel was large and cooked "just right" in my partner's words. Lamb Souvlaki was delightful. Great flavour. Generous portion but I managed to eat it. No need for dinner that night!! Owner of restaurant took time to speak with us and was as charming as always. Xenos is a... More

We enjoyed Xenos last evening. Other than for coffee and breakfast, we had not eaten there before and were keen to do so on the recommendation of the friends we were dining with. We found ourselves in a bustling Crows Nest on a Saturday night and dining at a very vibrant pavement side Greek restaurant in the old style. It... More

I came here thinking I was going to eat traditional Greek food, but the menu was so mixed with Italian, Australian Greek so many different. I ordered what there was of the Greek food, your traditional plate, with the dips and souvlaki, what a let down... I was devastated as I just love Greek food! We ended up leaving 3/4... More

Xenos has all the usual fair, although no pancakes or waffles if that's your interest. So there's many forms of egg, bacon, muesli and all the add ons. It is all well prepared and the service is very good. Lovely coffee too. I would come again.

Thank you for visiting Xenos and taking the time to write a nice review. Regarding pancakes and waffles, we have had them both on the menu for several years and feel like we have 'flogged those two dishes to death'. We have an extensive menu with healthy choices. Maybe some time in the future the old waffles and pancakes might... More

I took my wife there on her birthday, the food, staff, environment, everything was good. There is a good variety of foods there, we tried the duck and goat. Amazingly cooked and presented. I strongly suggest that place to everyone.

This restaurant offers Greek dishes as well as usual Australian fare. Some dishes are a little greasy and oily. Extensive menu.
