Nestled in Siesta Key Village, The Cottage is a casual and quaint, old Florida beach house with a menu that will never disappoint. Our fusion cuisine appeals to locals and globe trekkers alike with Latin American, Asian and Hawaiian influences. We offer indoor dining and two options for outdoor seating--a front patio that overlooks The Siesta Key Village, and a garden-setting back patio with live music nightly 7pm-close. Happy Hour runs Monday - Friday from 11:00am-6:00pm. Known for attention to fine food, lovely cocktails and great service, The Cottage has quickly become everything that is raved about on TripAdvisor and more.

We had a delicious dinner on the deck. We ordered four different tapas dishes to share and loved them all. We didn't have to wait long for a seat, but shortly after we got there, the wait began. I can see why this place is so popular. We would definitely return.

Food was amazing! We had the surf and turf special which rocked our world! We sat in the patio and really enjoyed the musician that played during our meal. Our waiter was very knowledgeable and provided excellent service. We will definitely be back next time we visit SK!

It is hard to serve 30 at a smaller restaurant but the staff were charming and unflappable as though they have done this before. Good attention to their tables and the meals were served in a timely manner. They had nice happy hour prices so we could have cocktails before ordering. There is a nice little garden area outside that... More

We read the positive reviews of the restaurant and totally agree. We loved it too! I had the skirt steak and my husband had the grouper sandwich. Both were excellent. Our daughter had the lobster bisque and thought it was delicious. The tuna and watermelon appetizer was outstanding. There was live music which was entertaining but not intrusive. Really pleasant....

This place is cute, service is great, and food is amazing. We had a piña colada, red sangria, caesar salad, tuna tartar tacos, and crab cake. It was all delicious!

My adult family (3 couples, our parents and 2 nieces under 2 years old) ate here one night of our trip to Siesta Key. The food was really excellent! We all shared the flatbread, crab cakes and a few more of the tapas plates for appetizers- everything was delicious. I had the glazed salmon for my entree, highly recommend!! The... More

My husband and I landed here woth our nine month old during our stay and were pleasantly surprised at the great atmosphere. While it is definitely a bar restaurant, the food was soooo good and they even supply high-top highchair. Try the curry shrimp roll!

We went for a late lunch & really enjoyed ourselves! We opted to eat inside with AC. Our server was fun & witty. He suggested a jalapeño vodka drink special which was delicious. My tuna tartare tacos did not disappoint. My companions grouper sandwich was huge & she enjoyed it. Will definitely go back!

Our group of 8 had excellent service from Stacy for a late dinner. The menu has an Asian-esque seafood theme with interesting flavor combinations. The standout for me was a Tuna Tarpido or something. Sashimi tuna in between watermelon slices. Light and refreshing and the right entrée size with shared appetizers.
