We had a wonderful lunch at Straw Hat last week. The food was delicious, service good and location on Meads Bay fabulous. Given the cost of restaurants on Anguilla, Straw Hat is a great value. I had the tuna on flatbread and my husband had the fish sandwich. Both were wonderful, and the fries that came with his sandwich were dangerously good. Service was friendly. The beach in front is beautiful. I'd go back in a heartbeat.

We make sure we have at least one or two lunches and a dinner at Straw Hat during our February stays on Anguilla. The staff is efficient, friendly and always welcoming, Even though she was busy with a large group at dinner, Armel came over for a hello kiss and Doris, the hostess, is efficient and always making sure all is well. Since the new chef, Nick, the food as gotten even better.

Lunch was only disappointing in that they were out of the fried plantains and salsa "for the table" but our waist lines were probably lucky in that regard. We both had delicious sandwiches accompanied by the best fries ever and I had a very good rum punch. Dinner, I was craving meat and the special was a skirt steak, done medium rare, as requested, that was melt in your mouth good. It came over mashed potatoes & asparagus with shrimp and pineapple; hubby had the crispy snapper with creamed spinach and plantains, which he said was the best snapper he had this trip.

Since we stayed in the villa a lot during the day, we only ate lunch at SH once this trip but it's worth many come backs.

Went for lunch based on other reviews, and can't wait to go back. It sits right on the beach down from our hotel so we can walk along the water. I had the fish sandwich my husband had the cubano. We ended up sharing because both were so good. The fries that come with are the best fries I have ever had. Can't wait to go back!
