“Always Good”
Reviewed 1 December 2011

Strawhat is one of the best restaurants on the island. Good food, fair prices, friendly staff and a wonderful oceanfront setting. I love their 3 course prix fixe choice - they have a large menu, but the 3 course is just right for me. Check their website for a full menu. One of our favorite restaurants, a trip would not be complete without a visit to Strawhat. Highly recommend!

“Good location and fair value food with taste....”
Reviewed 28 November 2011

We liked the setting and found the menu to be creative but with a slight formula to it. Having said that it was not a misrepresentation of what it was trying to be. We had an enjoyable evening and would happily return.

The bathroom design deserve a mention...in fact the overall design was very creative which added to the evenings enjoyment.

“Great for lunch or dinner”
Reviewed 26 November 2011

This restaurant offers a super relaxed atmosphere with very good food. The ceviche is an example of the chef's creative take on an old favorite - thinly sliced snapper marinated in a tangy lime sauce.

“Pretty good...”
Reviewed 23 November 2011

I would say it's a better lunch than dinner. Just as expensive as the finest restaurants,but lacks the personality of some others. food was GOOD, don't get me wrong, but not awesome...

“Great spot with solid food and service”
Reviewed 23 November 2011

This is our second visit to Straw Hat. We went back in '08 at the original location as it was highly recommended to us. We were not overly impressed that visit. This time it was much improved all around and so now I would recommend it too. I think this is a good spot to go with children as they are most accommodating to them with a full children's menu and an overall relaxed vibe that makes families feel welcome.

I had grouper and my spouse had steak and we both started with salads. We both liked our choices. The desserts did not disappoint either.

One comment on the service it was almost too much. There was always someone coming by to check on how things were going but it did not feel very coordinated. At one point we added a drink to our order when someone came by and he said sure and then when our main server came by she seemed to have no idea we ordered the drink and went over to the bar and had it made herself. . This was similar to our experience getting and paying the bill a lot of helpful asking about it but not coordinated in the execution of getting the transaction completed. However, I would rather have this over service rather than lack of service which was one of our issues on our original visit.

Overall a great spot on the ocean to relax and enjoy good food.
