Do yourself a favour and... More

Great food, authentically French (with the owners being of French origin!). We are fortunate to visit France regularly and this was as good (or better) than most meals there. It is not cheap, do not go there expecting an inexpensive meal - but quality is superb. BYO wine.

Two recent experiences with excellent service and great food. Take a beer or bottle of wine, fully BYO. Will become our regular go-to lunch destination. Very nice, authentic atmosphere with owners serving and cooking. Highly recommended.

Cute little cottage with good food, nice and quiet. We had the soup which was tasty and a good sized serving with bread. Coffee and cake was excellent too.

We were here to celebrate a family members 21st birthday and it was definitely the best place to eat. The atmosphere is lovely for a family celebration as it's small and cosy. The food is some of the best I've ever had. I was a bit dubious to eat beef cheek but the way this lady cooks is amazing!! All... More

Undoubtedly Albany's finest restaurant, we dine here every few months and in the 20 years we have been dining here we have never once been disappointed,the quality and service is assured by having the owners cooking and serving front of house, and for the quality and quantity of food, it must be the best value in Albany.

We thoroughly enjoyed our lunch at Lavender Cottage. Even though it was very busy, we did not for a moment feel that we were not getting the best of attention from the friendly and efficient staff. Our meals were beautifully prepared and presented. This is certainly a "NOT TO BE MISSED" treat when visiting Albany
