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.

We loved it. The food was amazing and beautifully presented. One of the best places we ate dinner at.

Having been going to Siesta Key for nearly twelve years this was our first visit to The Cottage, definitely not the last.

A welcome break from menu options normally available locally and well worth the little extra dollar to have this quality and tasty food. Up there with one of the best meals in Siesta Key. Enjoy....

We stopped in after a day at the beach looking for some seafood. What an awesome experience! The lobster bisque was the best I've had in a long time and the raw oysters were fresh, cold and delicious. The calamari was tasty with a different tasty chili sauce which made for a tasty surprise. The crabcakes were delicious and freshly made. We also had the chicken skewers on the tapas menu which were cooked just right and full of flavor. The ceasar salad has a spicey dressing which the kids didn't like, but our server Megan went way out of her way to get another one with plain ranch from their sister restaurant next door! The presentation was beautiful for each plate we ordered! Our server Megan was outstanding! She was pleasant and friendly, helpful and knowledgable! We couldn't of asked for a better time! The atmosphere was casual as some wore beach attire and some were dressy casual. Overall I would come here again when returning to the area.

We got caesar salad which was good but a little hot. Beef ribs were excellent but the portion was really small. Way over priced. Chef must think he is needs paid more than anyone. It was excellent food but would not go back. After eating I felt like I needed to go eat somewhere else to get full. Shrimp rolls were good, but once again over priced. You got two small egg rolls for $13.00. Service was not good either.

We ate at The Cottage during our stay in Siesta Key. It was one of the best restaurants we have ever been to. The service was outstanding. The drinks were amazing. We got their signature ceviche as an appetizer and honestly was the best thing we ever tasted. All our meals were amazing... Waloo, grouper, salmon, crab cakes, and the tuna appetizer were all spectacular. Do not skip this place on your trip to Siesta Key.
