My wife and I recently dined at the Straw Hat. We had eaten there at a few years back at the old location and loved it. I hate to say it, but we were disappointed this time around.

We found the staff to be a bit curt and the pacing of the meal was not right at all (quite rushed compared to other restaurants). The tuna flatbread appetizer was very strange and was globbed with what we thought was mayo. The grilled snapper was just ok...a bit dry and boring. The lobster and shrimp tacos were pretty tasty. The best thing about the Straw Hat is the outside deck, which was beautiful (but also very buggy).

But overall, just not that great.

“Nice relaxed atmosphere”
Reviewed April 27, 2014

Everything we ate here was excellent. Service was great and we were never rushed through any of our meals. There is a beautiful view of the sea, cant beat it.

“Nice setting, great food, good wine list -- and Sprocka”
Reviewed April 25, 2014

April 2014 mid-week dinner. Very nice setting right on Meads Bay Beach. Great food and suggest staying with the locally caught fish and simple veggies done in special ways. A local legend, Sprocka, was entertaining on the Wednesday night we were there. He is a master and wonderful to hear and dance to. Follow Sprocka and wherever he is playing is worth dinner there. Love Frangipani and Straw Hat.
