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

We were here recently for dinner with friends celebrating their anniversary. This place is a bit "out of sight, out of mind" as I forget it's here, so it has been some time since I last dined here. The place soon filled to capacity and created a nice atmosphere. The service was very good as always and the food extremely... More

On my latest visit to Lavender Cottage I ordered the crime brûlée with raspberries. And it was excellent! It was served with an excellent coffee. The staff are friendly and cheerful.

Lavendar Cottage has been recommended to me several times and I'm so glad I got a chance to stop by for lunch while staying in Denmark. There was nothing to fault - staff were lovely, food was incredible (the beetroot and feta tart a standout) and the only issue was choosing what to have from the appealing menu. Très bien!

We took my sister in law here to celebrate her birthday. They are only open for dinner on Fridays and bookings are essential. BYO and sit back and relax. Choose 2 or 3 courses. Food was innovative and delicious. On the night we went, the chef seemed to be into pairing. Snapper and salmon, steak and ribs... All done beautifully.... More

Always come here for a Friday night meal when in Albany and book ahead a couple of weeks prior to make sure we have a table. Excellent food and it's BYO. Service attentive and friendly. Menu is small but I've never found it lacks for choice or balance.

I come here at least once a year for lunch, and the experience has always been resoundingly positive. The people who own and run the restaurant are delightful, attentive, and the service is excellent. The food is of a very high quality, and there is always an excellent selection available. The "lunch box" special is always a good choice, and... More
