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 food, atmosphere and service. We usually sit at the bar or on the porch out front. The back is nice too, with live entertainment.

“Consistently Impressing Tourits and Locals”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 7, 2014

There are dozens of Restaurants in Siesta Key that cater to the steady flow of Tourists who come to visit Siesta Key. Unfortunately, the majority of them suffer from poor management, bland food or staff that is just going through the motions. Let's face it, the service industry is tough. However, those of us who live here know and appreciate the Cottage! Friendly staff, especially Colleen who waited on us Saturday. The food is always tasty, well prepared and creative. This is where locals go..so what you should know!

“Great food and service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 6, 2014

We came for dinner to celebrate our anniversary. Definitely ask to sit on the back patio area - although keep in mind you will be sitting at a picnic style table. Just benches to sit on, no seats with backs. I had a dress on and felt a little over dressed, but that's ok. Service was great and was so was dinner. We got the sea bass appetizer and my husband got the skirt steak (great flavor!) and I had the pasta with shrimp (I skipped the scallops). They had a couple of guys playing music and it was nice, not too loud. Overall great experience!

“Creative meals”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 5, 2014 via mobile

We ate here during happy hour which offers both lower prices on select drinks and menu items and an uncrowded restaurant to dine in. Service was prompt and friendly. Very flavorful sauces with edamame and tuna tacos. Cocktails were delicious. Good selection of choices for the whole family. Key lime pie should not be missed- delish!

“Good live music and awesome cabana”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 4, 2014

I haven't eaten here but the staff and atmosphere for drinks and music was great.


If you get there early enough they have a great cabana out back that you can eat in. Love that it's a small place, quiet and hidden pattio.
