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.

Went to The Cottage for the first time and can honestly say that not only was the meal outstanding, the wait staff was attentive, friendly and knowledgeable. We will definitely return to this restaurant and will recommend it to others. The menu choices were varied and look forward to trying other menu items. I can definitely recommend the Mussels, the...

Took a party of eight, of all ages, for my wife's birthday. I was a little taken back at first because, despite the interesting tapas style menu, this is really just a bar. To be fair though, it was raining and the back deck might have been more comfortable for our party. We proceeded to squeeze eight of us around... More

We sat out back on the patio and listened to some great music while we ate dinner. The Lobster Bisque was very good and rich. The Caesar Salad had a unique flavor and was very good. The Walu and Tuna was amazing. The Crab Cake Sliders were nothing special; but the chips that came along with them were great. Overall,... More

Loved the atmosphere sitting on the deck. The food was so well presented and good. Something different than the usual sandwiches and salads. We will go back on our next trip to siesta.

9 ladies went for a late dinner and the food was great. We had everything from apps to salads to full meals. Some of the stand outs: grouper sandwich, ribs, salmon salad, and my burger which I am still remembering and lusting for after a week!!! Sat out back in the beer garden. Sadly we just missed the entertainment.

Planned to dine across the street, however they weren't open on Sunday. We drove by the Cottage and noticed they had free valet (parking on siesta is scarce) so we decided to give it a shot and we're glad we did! The valet was very friendly and suggested the salmon. As soon as I walked inside I loved it! Such... More
