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 7pm-close. Happy Hour runs Monday - Friday from 11:00am-6:00pm. Late Night Happy Hour offered Friday and Saturday evenings from 10pm to 1am. 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.

Great place right in the village. Not the run of the mill burger and fry place. Fresh Tuna, clams, not a huge menu, just a hand full of excellent choices. You won't be disappointed.

Went here with girlfriends, while staying in Siesta Key. Loved the Strawberry Basil Martinis. We shared items like the crab sliders, and truffle risotto. Two of the girls got burgers, and after a taste, wish I had gotten one too! Delish...
Would love to bring my husband here on a return trip.
Very nice treatment by our server Michael, he made the meal fun.

We dined at the Cottage 3 times during our visit to Siesta Key. We enjoyed 2 dinners one on the front terrace and one on the back patio. Both were very pleasant dining experiences and had heaters for the cooler evening temperatures. A little disappointed that there wasn't music on the back patio the Friday evening we dined there. Our favourite menu item was the lobster bisque - so creamy & tasty. We also enjoyed the cottage burger, mahi mahi sliders and the crab sliders. The house chips included with the entrees are unique and very tasty. The lunch menu is very similar to the dinner menu & has "happy hour" drink prices. The staff was very attentive and pleasant. A good experience.

Two visits this trip to The Cottage in Siesta Key and both were outstanding! It's great food, very unique and always great specials. The wait staff and Manager, Tim do an great job in providing information on the house menu and any of the daily specials. On both visits we had special requests for our seating; the cabana in the back for a larger party on the front deck for a quiet evening of great food and people watching. Tim and his staff in both cases were very accommodating, making the nights even better. I highly recommend the Lobster Bisque, Shrimp rolls (very unique preparation) and the special chips they make in-house. We've never had a bad meal and always try whatever the special is each visit......last night it was a lobster shushi top with beef filet, it was amazing. Katy our waitress was excellent and paced our food so we could enjoy the evening on the deck. Chef Larry was available to meet and greet and spent time with us, talking about his menu and upcoming features. Don't miss The Cottage on your visit to Siesta Key, in the Village.

We had lunch here a few days ago. Our server, Jessica, was great. She was friendly, efficient and helped with my gluten free needs. They have the most fabulous ceviche. We have tried other places for ceviche and been very disappointed. The Cottage has other super yummy food too. And their specialty drinks are wonderful. Try the Jalapeno Watermelon Margarita. It is spicy and delicious. They use all fresh ingredients. Lunch prices are a bargain.
