Best food in Albany. Much better than Garrison and the other fine dining options we tried in Albany. The rabbit dish was excellent. Classic French slow cooking. Deserts not to be missed. Remember it is BYO and they dont serve wine , but no issue, just take your own wine.

Although the atmosphere was fantastic, the service was polished, the dishes all lacked their own taste. I think it's a shame that the place is shutting its doors in six months.

Our Albany friends booked dinner at Lavender Cottage when we were visiting from Perth. Lovely ambience, friendly service and amazing food. Complimentary fresh baguette, butter and amuse bouche smoked salmon tartlet to start. My husband and I had the entree Bouillabaisse which was absolutely divine - our friend had the scallops and chorizo and his wife had the terrine, pate board. All very generous portions. We then received a complimentary sorbet to cleanse our palate (delicious) the men had the trio of pork, I had the trio of duck. We also received a complimentary salad and potato dauphinoise. AMAZING!! We then a shared desserts of creme brûlée. Also took along our own wine. I made a visit to the bathroom which was through the kitchen and was amazed at how small the kitchen was - the food was delivered at the same time for all courses and it was a busy night, so hats off to the chef - we will definitely visit again when we are next in Albany.

This little gem is open for lunch most weekdays, but only for dinner on Fridays. It is so popular that must be booked well in advance. We were very lucky to get in on a cancellation. My husband had the pork, which was delicious, as was the fish.

Please note this restaurant is BYO only.

The only reason I didn’t give it five stars is that the service was very slow.

Sadly, there was no flavour and it was all bland to indifferent. The produce was superb but there was no sparkle to the cooking.
