“Walk up from the beach for fresh food”
Reviewed May 19, 2014 via mobile

First, if you are staying at the viceroy do not miss the opportunity to walk from the hotel on the beach to the restaurant. We walked in the evening -10 min walk for dinner at straw hat. So great to walk right up from the beach to dine sitting along the water (hotel concierge discourages walking on beach at night, but it was totally fine). There was nice musical entertainment which was nice but the food is the main attraction. The produce and fish was so fresh and prepared clean and simple. Many islands make there dishes saucy or heavy, everything was fresh, well prepared and simply prepared. I was amazed at the quality. Service was good and good energy at the restaurant. This was my husbands favorite fish meal on the island. Do not miss the opportunity to eat here, especially if you are staying at the viceroy.

“Straw Hat will not disappoint”
Reviewed May 18, 2014

This is my third visit to Straw Hat. The first was many years ago when it was located in The Forest and then 5 years ago at it's location now at the Frangipani. Sitting out on the patio under the stars and just steps away from the white sand of Meads Bay, Straw Hat offers everything you would expect in a dining experience on a Caribbean Island - even the tiki torches at the entrance. Although I think any night would be lovely, we decided to go on a Wednesday because the Anguillan musician Sprocka was playing. The menu is eclectic with a wide range of choices from the Straw Hat spring roll to seafood and lobster tacos. We shared both of these appetizers and they were excellent while also enjoying their delicious bread, served in a straw hat; a fun touch. For an entree we both had snapper, but each prepared differently and for dessert we shared a piece of lime cheesecake; a perfect ending to our delicious meals. Beautiful setting, good food, friendly service along with Sprocka and his personable way of entertaining made our evening at Straw a Hat a memorable one. I just hope it's not another 5 years until I'm back.

Great meal at The Straw Hat. Excellent service and cool, hip surroundings. Meals are substantial, but just a little on the heavy side. Goat sliders are a highlight. Ditch the bread basket as it's "ok", but not worth touching. Tuna and chicken were yummy.
