I have been to Lavendar Cottage three times now. Service is faultless and friendly. The food is fantastic! The restaurant is quaint and cute and I can't wait to go back! Great value and BYO! Love it 😊

The food was delicious with a French touch. The selection of food was delicious and being BYO was fabulous as the price was good without the addition of the alcohol bill. The staff were lovely to deal with.

Now this is fine French food! Rich, bursting with flavour and oh so satisfying. We had the Friday night dinner - they only open one night a week for dinner - and were very, very impressed. Not only the food was great; the staff are warn and attentive and the ambience is just perfect. If you are visiting Albany book... More

We thought we had booked a table for four on a particular Friday night at this lovely Restaurant. Unfortunately, we had our dates wrong. The owner of Lavender Cottage was so helpful and was so upset for us and our predicament. They were full for the evening, so there was no way that we could eat at a later time... More

This is the favourite Albany restaurant of friends who travel and dine extensively around the world. On a family visit to Albany we had lunch there. One had the macadamia crusted chicken and they reported it was delicious. Myself and one other had the blackboard special of the day Groper and Scallops with tarragon and fennel sauce on risotto, served... More

If you want to eat here on a friday night you need to book about three weeks ahead - you don't need much more of a recommendation than that! I had to make do with lunch on this visit as I didn't plan far enough out and it was superb.

Service was fine, friendly vandalism nor intrusive. The food (3 dishes) was very well received, tasty, and well presented. It was busy though noise level was quite tolerable. We'll certainly return when next in Albany. Their coffee ain't half bad either. Three sweet-tooths at the table relished their offerings.

The Lavender Cottage comes highly recommended to us, so we knew we wanted to visit while we were in Albany. The cottage is only open for dinner on Friday nights (open for lunch throughout the week) so I called to make a booking and managed to grab the last table. I adore little houses that have been turned into shops... More

The menu choices were great and the food going past looked god however we waited over an hour for our meals - Lamb Shank and a pate platter - never did find out what the hold up was - people that came in after us had their orders taken and food delivered before us.

We booked into this lovely small restaurant on a Friday night - the only night they're open for dinner. It was full of customers and a waiting list was in place in case of late cancellations. The menu offering was two courses for $79 or three courses for $89. Expensive but all inclusive. It's a BYO restaurant and it doesn't... More
