About Xenos Restaurant

Xenos Restaurant is a Sydney eatery and bar with a very long shelf life. It’s been at the same address down Crows Nest’s Burlington Street since that lovely summer of 1969, and it’s still going strong, standing proud as a leader in the community’s hospitality scene as the neighbourhood blossomed into a culinary hub crammed with edible possibilities. A veteran in a sea of fresh­faces (this eatery pioneered al fresco dining in the area!), Xenos remains a local favourite for its innovative approach to delicious Greek and modern Australian cuisine. A friendly word of warning: despite expanding to almost double its size some years ago, Xenos remains popular to the point of packing out – reserve to avoid disappointment.

Further Information

Gone (but for the oldies not forgotten) are the days of Xenos Restaurant’s original incarnation as the local linoleum­floored milk bar, but thankfully doubled is this Crows Nest institution’s ability to serve up fantastic contemporary Greek and Australian cuisine to an increasingly eager horde of Crows Nest locals and Sydney diners. The Burlington Street foodie scene’s been growing steadily for some time now, and Xenos has always been there leading the charge, whether it be breakfast, lunch, or dinner, well­stocked wine cellars and dessert selections, cocktails and coffee. Thanks to Kathy and Peter Xenos, and now their sons Tim and Dennis, the North Shore has, and long will have, a destination for that delicious collision of Mediterranean and Aussie taste traditions.

You’d be forgiven for wondering what was exceptional about outdoor dining along Crows Nest’s Burlington Street, an area where al fresco eating is now a standard, but not only did Xenos Restaurant first successfully lobby for the first streetside dealing in this Sydney dining hotspot, but it is always the best way to enjoy Greek cuisine – after all these forward­thinking and food­obsessed Mediterranean people have been eating sunkissed food on sunkissed terraces for a good 3,000 years. At Xenos, diners can enjoy breakfasts of Greek­style scrambled eggs, lunches of Sydney rock oysters or Spring Bay mussels, or opulent dinners with dishes like Greek slow­roasted lamb, Australian seafood specialties or premium Wagyu beef outdoors or in the spacious and beautifully appointed interior. Secure a spot in the sun now!

Consistently good food and service at this restaurant. Good corner table for two people meant noise was kept to a minimum for us. Keep up the good work.

Overall experience was good except for the noise levels which were too high - even though we were sitting outside , but I guess that's one of the hazards of dinning in Sydney. The food and the staff were very good, even after one of our party realised that they had ordered the wrong dish and wanted to return it. The staff were very understanding and happily ordered another dish without charging us for the first dish.

Mother's Day lunch for 7 was a most enjoyable experience, at Xenos. I hadn' t told my wife I'd booked, so it was a big suprise and went down well. The food was excellent, staff attentive and we were served really quickly despite the size of the crowd. We'll be back!

Their food was delicious as usual, but I was disappointed with the table they gave us as it was in a very tight and awkward spot, right near the main entrance (even though I booked the table for 8 more than 2 weeks ahead). And I thought I should mention the salad with my schnitzel came very late - in fact I was already halfway through my dish when the waiter brought it over.

A mainstay of the Crows Nest food scene, and you can see why it's a popular hit with locals. Great food, good service and good ambience. Perfect for that casual get together or seeing old friends in a relaxed environment and paired with some good food and wines.

Great as usual, Xenos never disappoints. Beautiful location in Crows Nest, extensive menu to suit every palate, including vegetarian choices. Delicious food and wide variety of desserts at very reasonable prices. Beautiful presentation, fast and efficient service, friendly atmosphere and extra attentive staff. Very pleased!

Average/ good food, nice atmosphere but not very much service at all. It took a very long time for anyone to check in on us and ask how our meals were and I had to get up to ask for a spoon, a napkin, water and the bill, which was a bit annoying. But overall we enjoyed the night and would be back.
