Complete with local music and the freshest seafood, we loved our dinner at the Straw Hat. They are and should be very proud of the deliciousness they are putting out at the beachfront beauty.... Even with peas and rice - we were so happy with this choice

“Excellent food”
Reviewed November 4, 2013 via mobile

Our party of 8 dined at the Straw Hat last night. I thought it was good. There was a power outage when we got there, and it was stifling even outside, but the lights (and fans) came back on after 20 minutes.

Most of our group had the grilled snapper, which was great. The side veggies were well prepared, also. Wine prices were reasonable.

A couple of negatives: there were 2 smokers right next to us. You would think people would be more considerate in this day and age. Second, our server, a woman, was not even a little bit friendly. She was very competent, but did not crack a smile at any time.

Overall, we had a nice meal in a nice setting.

An amazing place for dinner, right on the beach, great music, decorations, food and drinks. I wish they sold the straw hat inspired furniture bc we would def buy something as a souvenir.

“Wonderful food, better view”
Reviewed September 6, 2013

We ate here on one of our first nights in Anguilla and were very impressed. We started out having really delicious cocktails and then terrific food. The service was great and we got there early so we could get a table right on the edge of the deck overlooking the beach. The only less-than-great part of the meal was the live entertainment - the musicians were not very good - but it was fun to have as part of the meal anyway.
