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.

With Taste Great Southern kicking off on March 23rd until April 9th, this is the perfect time of the year to get along and try out the French inspired cuisine at one of Albany’s best restaurants, Lavender Cottage in Peels Place. We were down last week and after receiving many recommendations went along for lunch – and so glad we... More

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 dined there... More

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

This is our go to restaurant for any special occasion, or even just a sneaky nosh up lunch. They are only open one night a week, so you'll need to book in advance but you wont be disappointed. Traditional french food with excellent friendly service and fresh seasonal produce, BYO. Cannot recommend enough.

What a treat this restaurant is. Totally charming. Totally French and totally delicious. My family and I eat hear once a year as a special treat (travelling from Perth) and we are never disappointed. The seafood chowder is a revelation. The duck leg confit, perfect and the Filet Mignon was simply one of the best I have ever had, worldwide.... More

I cannot stress enough how good this place is. Every time I visit my family in oz (every year for the past 10 years) I have been and it never disappoints - it's outstanding food and service in a perfect and special setting . Don't visit Albany and not go!
