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.

Had two dinners and breakfast every day (stayed at adjacent Frangipani) at Straw Hat during our recent visit. Always a first class experience, from the friendly waitstaff at breakfast, and the attentive dinner service (Armel rules the evening and keeps us entertained). Had a variety of meals, with mahi-mahi, pepper encrusted tuna, red snapper , spring rolls and curried goat sliders standing out.Never dissapoints and the entertainment on Wed & Fri nights is a nice touch. Views and location on the beach is to die for!

We went to Straw Hat on the strength of the reviews on this site and the good reputation it has on Anguilla. Our experience was less than stellar.

First, the positives. We had a table overlooking the beautiful waters of Meads Bay. The lighting was nice (not too harsh, not too dark). And the staff was pleasant and efficient. But the food... that's another story.

The problems started immediately. We were served a basket of burned bread. My soup (a special that night - roasted cauliflower) tasted of just of cream. Thick cream. Yuck. Husband had the sea snails. They came in a mason jar (kinda cute) but they were bland.

For entree, I had the grilled snapper, which was overcooked. It came with sweet potato gnocchi, which was flavorless. Husband had a curried goat pot pie, which was the best of the food we ordered. Massive portion, lots of goat.

With 2 glasses of wine, dinner was $150. Not worth it.

From the service to the food to the view, this places is a MUST go to! We had breakfast there every morning and the food was great along with the coffee. We had dinner there twice during our stay and it was amazing! Shane Sutton is the man!

We ordered the soft crab sandwich, and it was very fresh with great flavors. We were there during the slow season, which was nice, as we were one of two tables being served that day!
