Straw Hat Review

Charming owners, a gorgeous oceanfront location, sophisticated and original food, and friendly service are the main reasons this stylish restaurant has been in business since the late 1990s. Whether for breakfast, lunch, or dinner, you will find appealing, tasty, and fresh choices to mix up or share for the perfect meal. Try Anguilla's only "real" bagel, tuna flatbread, jerk-braised pork belly, lobster spring rolls, or curried goat. "Fish of the day" truly means fish caught that day. Vegetarians and kids will find many options. A small garden out in the back is the source for the super-fresh greens. The big flat-screens with satellite TV in the bar make it a fine place to catch the game or make some new friends.

    Best on the island

    This was definitely my favorite place in Anguilla. The setting is perfect and the meal was certainly one of the best I've had in years. Don't miss it!!!

    Straw Hat is Old Hat............

    We just returned from a fabulous vacation in Anguilla. Someone suggested that we try Straw Hat Restaurant. The owners are arrogant. That was picked up immediately by all four of us. The "favorite" appitizers were frozen eggrolls. The "fresh caught today", Grouper, if it was so, was ruined by overcooking. My husband's scallops were so overly seasoned that he could taste the scallops. None of us ordered dessert or coffee. Having said that, I remember that in every restaurant, we would be offered either bottled water or tap. At Straw Hat, the owner bosted, "Oh you don't want to drink our water." Why . Was it safe to drink the tap water all over the island but not at his restaurant, or is that just one more way to pad the bill, which was already 150.00 per couple. The owner did not even ask how our dinner was when we left. Perhaps he knew better. Having said that, we learned when we got back to our hotel that they recently lost their chef. With bosses like that, we were not surprised.

    It would have been nice,,

    to be offered more than just a seat at the bar, given the fact that the dining room was only about half full.Perhaps it was a mistake to not have a reservation. We looked at the menu outside and really were not drawn by that.What drew us in was the restaurant's reputation,and the beautiful location. We did not feel welcome and will not return.

    Straw Hat Review

    On a recent stay in Anguilla, I was able to have breakfast, lunch and dinner at Straw Hat. Best choice I ever made. Food was exquisite, no better view anywhere, especially when the big yachts were there. Service was very attentive. Chef really knows his sauces. Try it, I don't think you will be disappointed at all!
