“Excellent beach restaurant”

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.

“Fun location on the beachfront, but average food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 4, 2014

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 wasn't quite poor, but definitely not worth wasting a dinner on the place.

“Excellent dinner!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 2, 2014

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. Our waitress was not interested in serving us at all. We had a party of nine but were told that we would have to split into two tables. For our entire dinner, however, half of the restaurant was empty and they certainly could have pushed two tables together to accommodate our group.The jerk goat sliders were delicious as well as all of the deserts. The location is so fantastic that we will certainly be back, but likely just for drinks and apps/desserts.
