We were fortunate enough to be seated in the rear patio- felt like a secret hideaway. They had a great vibe out there with live music. We shared several of the appetizers, which were all unique and flavorful.

The Cottage Restaurant has the very best cheese burger I ever have eaten! Three types of beef mixed together, cartelized onions, aioli sauce....I was one happy girl! We ate outside, the atmosphere was fun and friendly. Treat yourself and enjoy a meal here!

There is a path to the street from the patio. I do not recall if it would be wide enough to accommodate a wheelchair or if it was even paved. I would call to confirm.

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.
