Best in Eureka Springs

Despite the less than stellar reviews I chose this restaurant as they seemed to be the only one in town with trout on the menu. I was so glad I did as this was the best of the 4 restaurants we experienced in ES. Our 2 trout dinners ( Tuscan and Southern style) were delicious with ample portions. We... read more

I first reviewed Cottage Inn in September 2013 with an Excellent rating. Since about a year and half had past, I thought another visit was in order. Our party of 4 was promptly seated since it was just after opening time. The waiter was very attentive and friendly. Not remembering I'd previously ordered the Tuna Siciliano, I selected it from...

It had been over five years since we had dined here and we were not disappointed. Service (we had the same waiter as at least once before) and food were great. We tried the wine (by flights) and that was fun.

The Filet Dijonnaise is usually superb, but not on our last visit. Please remember to sample the sauce and make sure the seasonings are correct. When we complained to the waiter that our food wasn't very hot or seasoned.....at all.....he said, I'm sorry...that was the end of that... At least the staff was apologetic, but no attempt was made to... More

The food was excellent. The wine sampling was fun. The service was superb. I recognized our servers from our first visit. We met the owner and she was very interesting. She had made the pear sauce for my meal with pears she had picked from a family pear tree :-). We went on a Thursday night and didn't need a... More

While the menu looked wonderful, we were disappointed that we did not get to eat here. We called when on our way to confirm that there would be no problem seating two immediately. Confirmed. When we got there a mere few minutes later there was very obviously no seating, with people waiting for seats before us. It's possible that there... More

From the first phone call to paying the final bill our experience with Linda and her crew was outstanding. The food was excellent and the service was great. The private room was a perfect setting for our wedding party of 35. Great Job, CIR!

We were here 5 years ago and we're thrilled to come back and it did not disappoint. Ťhere was a group of 13 of us and everything was spoken with such attention to detail. We had our own room and our waitress, while a young girl, was extremely knowledgeable of not only the food but the wine. There was a... More

I travel a lot and get to experience good cuisine from all over the world pretty frequently, but who would have thought that this little gem would rank up there with some of my favorite all-time meals? Its a fine-dining type of restaurant, but there really is no dress code: some people are in upscale clothes, whereas others show up... More

Love the quaint setting and peacefulness here. I've not been many places where I could watch deer forage for food while I was eating. The Tuscan Trout is absolutely my favorite of any dish I've had in Eureka Springs. Service is fantastic and price is right.
