“Amazing....food, service, ambiance”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2014 via mobile

We unintentionally ended up in Anguilla during carnival...their emancipation celebration. We went to the big beach party, and quickly learned that wasn't really our scene. If you're a twenty something looking for a rollicking and unpredictable party, go there. If you're a forty something looking for a more sophisticated crowd, definitely go to Straw Hat in Meads Bay. The food was amazing, the staff friendly and attentive. Fantastic place. They also have chairs / umbrellas on the beach. Haven't tried that yet, but we had such a great experience today, we're going back tomorrow to check it out. The beach there is the best one we've found so far. All around, not to be missed.

Cycled to this relaxed friendly beach restaurant, ate delicious food and watched the sun set . Cycled there on several more occasions for a relaxed tasty breakfast or late lunch , and a few sneaky puds ! Thank you Straw Hat for your tasy and nutritious menu served with a smile :)

“An excellent evening out”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 26, 2014

The Bottom Line:
A wonderful restaurant for romantic evenings or special occasions with a group. Service was excellent and every course was superb. Coffee and desert provided a great end to the evening.

Oh... the view of the sun sinking below the waves in the evening isn't too shabby either.
