“Fabulous Food, Service and Setting”
Reviewed January 22, 2014

Another wonderful meal at Straw Hat, curried goat pot pie - wow was that good, crispy snapper for DH which he raved about, Caesars salad and garden salad. Their portions are HUGE; I usually get the mixed grille, but decided to try something different and I was very pleased - we have enough leftover for lunch today on the patio.
They have such a great staff, everyone is so kind and accommodating, we love Doris, Armel and Peter. Chef Nick has changed the menu a bit - and it all looked good, I had a hard time deciding.
This is another one of our do not miss restaurants! HIGHLY recommend!

“Consistently Good”
Reviewed January 19, 2014

Straw Hat is and always has been a wonderful stop on our annual sojourn to Anguilla. I hate to give our ages away, but this is our 34th visit to the island. We have patronized this restaurant since the days it was located in The Forest, a neighborhood near the airport. It has relocated to Meads Bay, grown in size, but kept its imaginative menu that seems to offer something for everyone.

“Casual, comfortable dining”
Reviewed January 17, 2014

We dine at Straw Hat about twice each visit to Anguilla. The menu has something for everybody, including children. (Actually, I didn't check out the vegan/vegetarian options) The staff are upbeat and friendly. The owners always seem to be on site, and their attention to the customers shows.

This places is def. a must when you are on the island of Anguilla! The location on Meads Bay was beautiful having dinner feet away from the beach and the moon light hitting the water was a perfect way to celebrate our anniversary! We had a buch of starters , flatbread tuna, tomatoes with white beans , 2 orders of the spring rolls ,a sword fish tartar and shared the currie goat pot pie which was on the money. We also had a good bottle of wine that made the dinner oh so much better!! The staff was very nice if fact everyone on the island is great! We really enjoyed everything and the walk back to the hotel was much needed!
