With flavours originating from the island of Aphrodite, fused with Melbourne’s creative culinary flair, chef Steve Watson and restaurateur Nicholas Georgiades have joined forces with a combined 50 years of expertise in the hospitality industry and poured it into Venus & Co, the former site of Greek institution Stavros Tavern in Albert Park.

When Neos Kosmos featured Venus & Co last August, the establishment, that gets its name from the goddess of beauty, had just won the top prize in the Greek Restaurant category at the prestigious 2018 Victoria & Tasmania Savour Australia Restaurant & Catering Hostplus Awards for Excellence.

From day one, Georgiades and Watson have been committed to creating a memorable dining experience for Venus & Co customers. Their attention to detail and professionalism is what makes them such amazing hosts and won them the title of the Best Greek Restaurant in Australia by the Restaurant and Catering Association.

This second award, came on their one year anniversary as one more recognition for their impeccable dishes and service.

“We at Venus & Co present an authentic style of food and drink, using high quality produce, and applying traditional recipes, which honour our customs and cultural background,” said the owners.

“Our cuisine is provincial Greek Cypriot, with a modern and fresh twist, a happy mixture of Greek, Lebanese-Syrian and Arabic cuisines and spices, which have been derived from the centuries of cultural influences surrounding the island.”

“We’re honoured to be recognised as the Best Greek Restaurant in Australia by the Restaurant and Catering Association!” they wrote, inviting their customers for a celebratory drink.
