The Cottage Restaurant is located right in Siesta Village and offers a truly stunning setting to enjoy a tantalizing array of chef inspired dishes with an emphasis on locally sourced ingredients.
Here you can take in the vibe of a relaxed beachside eatery combined with the cuisine quality that you would expect from any fine dining establishment. True foodies will delight at their experience here, along with anyone else who wants something a little more sophisticated and refined compared to the fare offered by traditional beach eateries.
A truly beautiful setting near the world’s best beach
The Cottage Restaurant is just a short distance for the best beach in the world, Siesta Beach, and also conveniently located a short walk from Tropical Breeze Resort. This relaxed eatery is both inviting and charming, offering patrons the option of casual attire and live music every night of the week starting at around 7:00 p.m.
Here you’ll find a lively and friendly Florida crowd with a mix of locals and travelers from just about everywhere. The interior features beautiful wood paneling, a large horseshoe bar and nautical décor. On the outside you’ll find an open air deck with cozy and comfortable extra seating to enjoy the pleasant weather, along with umbrellas to keep you shaded.
Delectable and enticing fusion entrees and small dishes
The Cottage is famous for having one of the best arrays of small dishes/tapas in the area with delectable options such as tempura shrimp, South Pacific and Peruvian ceviche, lobster bisque, mussels, chicken skewers and many other options produced from the finest fresh local seafood and produce.
You’ll also find plenty of sides and a small but incredible list of fusion sandwiches and entrees such as the truffle beef filet, porcini steak medallions, lobster Make roll with Maine lobster, Hawaiian escolar, and seafood scampi.
A simple sandwich at The Cottage is a step above pub grub. As an example, the signature Cottage sandwich features a sirloin burger, Basque aioli, bacon, lettuce, tomato, and onion on a toasted brioche bun and chips on the side. Other options include Mahi, grouper and a Billionaire burger made with a blend of beef short rib, brisket and chuck and deliciously seasoned with a truffle aioli and an onion jam.
Fresh local cuisine in an unforgettable setting
The Cottage is a must visit for any true foodie visiting Siesta Key. It was founded by foodies who truly understand and are passionate about the art of producing amazing and high quality cuisine. You’ll find inspirations from all over the world on the menu and several unique and creative small dishes to sample. There’s no experience quite like dining here, so drop in after a day out at the best beach on the planet, or take the short walk from Tropical Breeze Resort.
