The staff and service was amazing as always! Great place to go for a bday celebration. Wonderful food and atmosphere. Looking forward to returning again soon.
Enjoyed lunch at this lovely restaurant. Delicious and varied set menu with a well balanced and creative dishes. Friendly environment, reasonably priced wine list. .......and I loved the dessert.
Delicious menu items. Great atmosphere and service. Not rushed. The cocktails are amazing.
This set menu restaurant had a good range of dishes all of which were of excellent quality. There wasn't a dish we didn't like. The restaurant is modern and what you would expect of a fine dining restaurant and the staff are helpful and attentive without being obtrusive. The wine list is extensive and has something for everyone. Definitely a find.
This beautiful restaurant was the perfect choice to celebrate our Wedding Anniversary. The person assigned to look after us was so lovely and friendly and was part of the reason for us having such a great night. A special thank you to her. The food was also equally as good with each mouthful immensely enjoyed and savoured. Thank you XO!
Nice birthday lunch in a very quiet restaurant - set menu was good, but would have liked just a little flexibility
Great food, tasty cocktails and friendly staff! Portions weren't huge but still enough that we were satisfied by the end of the meal. The sexy squid in particular was so good!
This is our go to restaurant for special occasions.The food is always fantastic.The service is slipping from the early days.Drinks order was slow , we had to get our own coats when we left and no one came to the door as they have in the past.
Wonderful Asian fusion meal. I will return, for sure.
This restaurant has a focus on continual improvement and excellence.....the experience just keeps on getting better. There is a wonderful staff culture... warm and caring engagement, combined with a knowledge explanation of each dish. The food is awesome ..... This restaurant does not survive off walks up..,,it is about return customers and those searching for great food. A really great place to have a quality dining experience at a affordable price...,,one of my Aussie favourites.
We had the set menu and the food was excellent, unfaultable really! The service was good, the food came at good intervals and the decor is really nice, although we were near the door and it was a little chilly on a Canberra Winter’s night! We had a table of four and between us had three different favourite dishes (mine was the prawns). We’ll definitely be back!
Great degustation menu with flexibility for gluten intolerance. Setting and staff are great. Only disappointment was with the main curry dish which was somewhat bland.
The food in the set menu was really nice and it’s fantastic value at $70pp. The atmosphere is lovely and the staff are very knowledgeable and friendly. My only gripe is that the bottles of water are expensive and they take them away before they’ve been emptied.
This is the second time I have dined at XO and I should’ve taken my cue the first time and not returned. While the food is very nice, it’s not great. Unfortunately, it does not make up for the uncomfortable seating arrangement (in the high chairs in particular) noise and lack of ambience. It’s a great concept food wise, but in my opinion, their fit out is not good.
Thanks so much for an awesome meal, we haven’t been out without our child for too long and it was perfect! The food was excellent the staff great and service as a whole was fantastic!
An intimate space with very friendly and intuitive staff. Careful attention to detail in the atmosphere really accentuated excellent and thoughtful cuisine. An essential stop in Canberra for any foodie.
What a great night out. Great food, attentive but not intrusive service, good selection of drinks including slightly different cocktails. Fixed menu changes fortnightly. You have to do it.
Excellent food and service. We love the variety and innovative dishes on the set menu
Food was delicious and service was excellent!
The man who served us most of the evening was great. He had a great knowledge of the wine list and menu. We enjoyed our experience here a lot and are saving our pennies to come back.

Love you like XO
Quirky, modern and oh-so-cool, XO Restaurant is breathing new life into the sleepy suburb of Narrabundah. This cracking new eatery has been created by four Canberra boys with a passion for food and drink, and they have created something really special. The menu features upmarket Asian street food with a playful twist… start with some fresh and tangy cured kingfish, and follow this up with the Malaysian style Prawn Kapitan. And you can’t leave without trying their signature ‘Asian Bolognaise’ which features stir fried udon in XO chicken ragout with a 60/60 egg - it's super delicious! The decor is stunning and the food is beautifully presented - you’ll be gramming all night!
