This is a hidden gem,
Venu is the training restaurant for Victoria University. You get top quality food at a very reasonable price. Usually only open for lunch a few days a week during the teaching periods, but was a lovely addition to go there last night for dinner. Set menu 3 courses for $30. Everything was superb. I had carrot and cumin soup followed by scotch fillet on potato rosti with mushrooms and for dessert fruit tart with marshmallow kisses. My partner had the tasting plate followed by pasta and for dessert salted caramel ice cream sandwich. It was faultless restaurant quality cuisine.The staff make you feel very welcome,some come across as being nervous and a few things you might expect usually from waiting staff don’t instantly occur,but keep in mind they are training to get a qualification in hospitality.

This is an all occasions place with high quality food. It does have a good selection of beer,wine and spirits again with very reasonable prices

I strongly recommend you book to avoid disappointment.

The staff were very friendly and helpful
They were a bit hectic once a few tables arrived
I think they were being closely watched by their supervisor and trying their best
They didn't have any carlton draft unfortunately
