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 selection of food and just down right good food! We would definitely go back. It was the best meal of our entire trip.

Had the walu and my wife had the salmon, both were served very artistically.. So many different wonderful flavors on one plate- And so well presented that we had to take a picture of the food.. We hardly noticed that it was taking a little bit of time for our food, but we were comped a mojito for "our troubles." Atmosphere was very nice, food excellent and original.

Probably shouldn't review a restaurant based only on one visit, but here goes; my wife and I had dinner at the Cottage on Sunday June 1 2014. We had lobster bisque and shrimp rolls for an appetizer and they we both excellent. For the main course, I had a grouper sandwich and my wife had a crab slider sandwich served with chips. We were both surprised that the quality of the sandwiches didn't come close to that of the appetizers. Almost like they were prepared in two different kitchens. The grouper was breaded and fried in what to me tasted like stale oil. My wife thought the crab was very bland in her sandwich. The chips were overlooked in our opinion, but some people like them that way.
The ambience and atmosphere of the Cottage was pleasant and the staff was friendly enough, but we elected not to repeat our visit. Too many other consistently delicious restaurants in the area.

Excellent atmosphere and meal. We really enjoyed this restaurant and plan to go back during this vacation. Ate tapas style so tried a variety of dishes and enjoyed everything. Short ribs were wonderful but so was the rest of the meal! We were set in the back patio which added to the experience. Loved the music and environment.

Had lunch here on a hot Sunday afternoon. Good people watching spot from the elevated patio. Smiley servers and good food, albeit from a restricted lunch menu. We will try again one evening if we have chance as the full dinner menu looks amazing.
