A group of 10 of us visited for my birthday get together and we started early with cocktails and went on to have dinner and then more cocktails. We were very well looked after by the lovely hostess, and enjoyed many cocktails! We had a superb large circular table, and it was a fab evening .... great place for a girlie get-together! Will be back!

Second visit in a year!!
Good friendly vibe running through the place
Service was very good (that’s important) cocktails splendid
Food in the self service area was looking a bit tired!!
There was a large birthday party going on which didn’t interfere with our experience at all
Overall definitely coming back for more and would recommend to anyone who likes dining drinking cocktails and dancing all under one roof !!

If you are a vegetarian, don't bother. However, if you like meat, I mean REALLY like meat, I mean REALLY, REALLY like meat you will not find a better place to eat, anywhere. I've eaten a lot of meat over the years in a lot of places but this is still living in my taste buds a week later. Garlic Beef - OMG - beautiful, memorable, just ...... indescribable. Got to stop now, need food.

Had a nice time - first occasion we’ve been here for lunch and the atmosphere is obviously not a lively as an evening booking. This was to celebrate our daughters birthday and we took our grandchildren who were made most welcome. We requested two types of bottled beer and neither were available as they had run out completely. The staff were very apologetic and we had good friendly service from them. All in all
Good value for money and delicious meat options.

Meat OK, not the best though. We didn't have the chance to try the other meals rather than meat as we were too full, they SHOULD advice the half menu is NOT available on Friday.

Ambiance was lacking, for a Friday evening it was poor. The service was poor, the food was ok, albeit very slow service, until the chicken thigh that was served to my dad which was bloody and undercooked. Unhealthy and dangerous. Was given my bill despite mentioning to a member of staff about the chicken and how it had put my dad off (we were actually out to celebrate dads birthday), this hadnt been reflected on with the bill. Had to then ask for his meal to be taken off the bill as he hadn’t eaten hardly anything. His meal was taken off after asking, however we will not be returning.

Thought we would try this restaurant as we hadn't tried Brazillian Rodizio before, although it was a pleasant experience, some of the food that came out was a little dry (especially chicken wrapped in bacon and the fish, some of the steak meats that came out were a little tough to chew and fatty, compared to other restaurants it did border a little on the expensive side for the quality of food ( £75 for 2 mains and 2 drinks) It was something different but probably wont be going again.

I have now been here twice, once for lunch and once for dinner. It's absolutely great. Cocktails were tasty, food delicious, staff friendly... Honestly overall experience was great.

The negative points?
In the evening the music was a touch loud, which meant you had to raise your voice to chat, the only food I didn't like was the calamari, was just overcooked and rubbery, and the drinks took quite a while to arrive at the table.

The only other negative was device was included in the bill. I'm an overtipper especially when service is good, but when service is included infind myself going "fine, that's all you get then" - they would have got double that had they not included it.

Have previously been and enjoyed it but went for my sons birthday and was terrible. Food was poor, service only interested in trying to sell more drinks, cleaning the restaurant whilst we were eating, no ambience and VERY expensive for what we had. Disappointed 😔

We arrived early and were were greeted by a surly waitress who seemed annoyed that some of our party hadn’t yet arrived. She disappeared into the restaurant with a colleague and returned a while later without speaking to us. We stood around not knowing what was happening, eventually the other waitress offered to show us to a table. The table she offered was for 2, I had booked for 6 people. When I mentioned this she then took us to another table, one of the seats was squeezed behind a pillar and was most uncomfortable to sit in. The menu was explained, it was an overpriced Christmas menu. I mentioned that we had been before and would explain to rest of our party when they arrived. 2 arrived almost immediately after the waitress left, when she returned I asked if we could select our meal from the usual menu, this annoyed the waitress who advised it was virtually the same. I explained that 2 people only wanted the buffet, not full rodizio. We were told that this wasn’t possible, despite the board at the entrance advertising both full rodizio and buffet only. The waitress was rude and aggressive, we decided to eat downstairs at Chiquitos. The staff were happy, fun and the place was packed. Xenia was like a morgue in comparison.

Found by chance. Superb first time experience. Excellent food that just kept on coming. All well prepared and cooked to perfection. Neither of us had eaten Brazilian food before so had no real idea what to expect, but, wow!!! Manager was very visible and taking time to talk to patrons in between courses. Fantastic place for a fun group of friends to eat. We are now planning a minicab trip with a group early on in the new year!!!

The feel of the place was relaxed and friendly and cocktails were well made and excellent.
The meats and salads were good albeit meats were salty. Garlic beef was just right though.
The mussels in tomato sauce need to be prepared fresh on the evening as they were dried out and tough. I am a seafood fan and this was not as expected.

Service was also good and waiters bringing the carved meats were attentive and friendly.
However, after ordering a £22 bottle of sparkling Prosecco was a bit surprised we had to open that ourselves.

Our First time there, waiting staff were very slow and casual, chef that bought meat round was very good, but some customers were letting their children run around anywhere but by their own table and the staff did not try to get the parents to keep their children under control. Their was no atmosphere, so it was also our last visit there.

A last minute decision to go to Xenia Lounge on a Saturday night, the weekend before Christmas. It was very busy so very noisy but service was still good. It's definitely good value for money as you eat so much and the meats are so tasty. The only thing was is that they didn't bring the fish round. We asked one of the waitresses and she did bring some Calamari over for us and said the rest should be round soon. Nothing came and to be honest in all our previous visits we have never seen the fish, it didn't really matter before but one of us is Pescatarian so the fish would have been good. The cocktails were great too.
