You'd never guess from driving by this 1930s cottage motel that there's white tablecloth dining inside. The chef and owner, Linda Hager, learned to cook while living in Europe years ago, and the little restaurant successfully pulls off a blend of Mediterranean flavors and comfort food. Think braised lamb shank with mashed potatoes. Or trout prepared two ways: Tuscan trout, prepared with pine nuts and currants, for the adventurous; or plain fried for those wanting the familiar. Everything is made from fresh ingredients, including the whole wheat bread cooked daily and the outstanding desserts prepared on site. Portions are generous, to say the least. Special dietary needs are readily accommodated. The service is ideal: friendly, attentive, and knowledgable both about the menu and wine list. A favorite with the locals and with devoted tourists, such as my husband and myself. Full disclosure: we've been going here for years.

Not a huge menu but a good one with a variety of choices, much with a traditional culinary approach and french influences. The food quality was good and definitely freshly made-to-order dishes. No heat-n-eat items here! Nice selections of wine. Quiet atmosphere and a good place for couples or small groups.
Service was excellent.

Been a couple of years since our last meal here but the Cottage Inn did not disappoint. Nice Mediterranean touch to the menu's fare. Good wine list. Help staff are excellent. One of our Top Five places to dine in a small town with so many great eating establishments.

We visited a friend who lives in Eureka Springs and were looking for a new place to eat. We decided to give Cottage Inn a try based on their online menu. We went early evening, walked in and were seated. The white linen tablecloth and napkins were a simple, elegant touch to the simple dining room decor.

The evening's special was ahi tuna which my spouse and I ordered. The tuna was cooked firm but not overcooked and was excellently seasoned. Our friend had high praise for her Tuscan Trout. The meal was very satisfying and filling. The pace of the meal was relaxed and the waiter was excellent. He provided the right amount of attention without always being at the table.

We all agreed the Cottage Inn hit the spot and was an excellent choice. We were very glad to have tried a new place. We will be visiting again to try something else from the very interesting menu. I highly recommend a special evening at the Cottage Inn.
