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 ate at the Cottage several times during our recent trip to Siesta Key. The food is tasty and attractively served - and the service is consistently excellent (We especially enjoyed waitress Hilary!). Our favorite spot is outside on either the front deck - or in the little garden area in the back (they have live music on the back patio most evenings, so be sure to check it out!)

Absolutely best Lobster Bisque anywhere! Calamari is outstanding (compared to what we've had in Italy, Spain, and our best standing for 10 yrs which was at Russo's in Cuyahoga Falls, OH). Chef Eppler deserves applause. And our waiter, Eric, was friendly with helpful recommendations. Gotta try this if in Siesta Key!

Because you had The Cottage rated #1 on Siesta Key, we ate dinner there. It was like little bites of heaven. So very good. You would not know it from the outside or inside as it looks like a typical Jimmy Buffet bar. We had fish: wahu and lobster roll. Drempt about this meal for several days.

My wife and I were looking for a fun, and high quality restaurant in Siesta Key and we found this gem from the reviews in Trip Advisor. We ate in the outside courtyard with excellent live music by 2 local musicians. The service from Stephan was terrific, and the dinner was outstanding. We started with the Tuna tacos and they were the best we have every had, and then we ordered the Sashami and the Grouper sandwich. Both of the entrees were fantastic. Outside of the quisine, the atmosphere was cosy and personal.

Kind of a fusion, funk, world restaurant with a bit of attitude. We had a wonderful waitress, Hannah, who clued us in on all the specials. My favorite was a small dish of sea bass skewers. So tasty! But everything at our table was delicious. Siesta Village is crowded with restaurants and partying people. Don't even try to park, but there is a free valet right in front of the restaurant. Go for it, you'll enjoy yourselves. They have a little outside area with live music. We were there with friends, so we skipped that so we could chat. Also a few tables out on the front porch for people watching.
