This is a great place to grab dinner and watch the sunset on Meads Bay. The food is great and ran about $125 with tip for two (2 drinks each plus my wife had the Cray Fish which was about $50). My wife decided to try the Cray fish after the waitress described it as sweeter and more tender than... More

Great place for lunch and a very beautiful place for dinner. Service is good and the food is fresh and delicious. Make sure you ask for a table closet to the beach.

We had a great location right on the edge of the beach, but the food wasn't really that great - especially in comparison to other places we ate on the island. The rolls were generic, right out of a bag type, my snapper was overcooked, caesar salad was average. I would have given 2 1/2 stars if possible - it... More

If you like to eat really good and has no limits in your wallet, this is the place to go. Very good service, a delicious dinner! We do recommend Straw Hat. One of the good restaurants at the West End Bay in Anguilla. Note that it is expensive but a casual place to be!

On our third trip to Anguilla we visited Straw hat for the third time expecting a wonderful meal in an amazing setting. The location and ambience are still idyllic, but the food and service has gone seriously downhill. Two orders of the seafood pasta came out bland and tasteless, three orders of the snapper were dried out and not appetizing.... More

Great food, great service and extremely friendly staff. The lobsters were huge and overfilled the plates. The chocolate martinis were wonderful. Shane has a great personality.

Bartender came over to the Hostess stand, " Reservations??" Not , "Hello welcome and thank you for coming to Straw Hat". We said , "no we did not", he said... More

We hadn't eaten at Straw Hat for years -- not since it moved to its current location -- but it will be a regular stop on future visits. On our first visit, my wife had the jerk pork belly and I had the panko crusted fish. Hers was wonderful. Mine was above average, just a tad on the dry side.... More

While staying at the Viceroy, we walked across Meads Beach for breakfast at the Straw Hat. The food is excellent and a great value, especially if staying at the Viceroy. The location is excellent on the far end of the beach. Service was also very good. Definitely worth a visit.
