“Fantastic French hosts with international class!”
Reviewed August 19, 2012

We regularly enjoy the Lavender Cottage- great food, friendly staff and always relaxed dining. Quality meals- great menu choices with excellent service from friendly staff. Always a wonderful experience- and excellent prices. Leaves a number of nearby venues for dead- class and quality beats hype and deep fryers for dead!

Can't recommend it highly enough!

“Hidden Gem”
Reviewed July 12, 2012

This is my favourite restaurant such a special home made feel. French food at its finest! I had a Pork dish with french lentils in the most delicious sauce (can't remember the actual name) I tried to re-create this at home but have no hope! Most beautiful huge fluffy cappacino. Great atmosphere. The only regret is they are only open for lunch and on friday nights. So special. Best restaurant in Albany by FAR!

“Fantastic food, fantastic staff - best restaurant in Albany”
Reviewed June 7, 2012

The restaurant is run by a couple - he cooks, she is front of house. The menu changes regularly and you are charged by the number of courses that you have (it is BYO which makes it more affordable than other restaurants in town). The food is French based but borrows from other cuisines and is excellent. The service is also excellent - friendly, efficient and unobtrusive. We have been many times and have never been disappointed. The restaurant is located in an old cottage in the centre of town. It is open for lunch weekdays and evening meals on Friday only. Bookings for Friday evening are essential as they book up weeks ahead - enquire as you might get a cancellation.
