Description: 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. Happy Hour runs 7days a week from 11:00am-6:00pm (12pm-6pm on Sunday). 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.

Dinner service was excellent. The grouper (fried) sandwich, risotto, and porch salad were excellent! The tuna with watermelon tapas dish was good, but I could probably skip next time. The cocktail are excellent, but make sure you ask which ones are sweet and which ones aren't. Can't beat the beach atmosphere and the servers are all top-notch - they know... More

The Cottage was recommended to us by several locals and frequent visitors. With those recommendations, we ventured out to see what all the commotion was about. The service was average and the food preparation, depending on the meal ordered was just above adequate. There seafood pasta was good, but nothing special. Their menu reflects an Asian flare for taste and... More

Try the lobster roll! It's a surf and turf sushi roll. So good... Mashed potatoes are original and amazing.

The Cottage was recommended to us while on vacation with my family in Siesta Key. Great food, atmosphere and service (Teresa) on the outdoor patio on a Tuesday night. The crab cake, lobster bisque and salmon were all outstanding.

This restaurant exceed all of our expectations. The atmosphere is great - comfortable temperature (aided by huge but unobtrusive fans), great music at the right volume, friendly and fast service by waitstaff who knows how to deliver great service without hovering and interrupting conversation. The food was delicious, with great layers of flavor. We had the shrimp rolls, which were... More

Since we were visiting Siesta Key to celebrate my husband's birthday, it seemed only fitting to enjoy a special dinner out. The Cottage did not disappoint. Yes, another night of raining cats and dogs while we were there but managed to arrive just before the bottom fell out. It was early in the week and the crowd was light so... More
