“yummy and beautiful”
Reviewed 1 June 2014

lovely food and beautiful location on Meads Bay one of the most beautiful beaches on the northeast of the island. If you go for breakfast and ask them they will arrange loungers for you on the beach where you can sun yourself, swim and order drinks. But they loungers fill up quickly so make sure to ask! Otherwise the beach is rather calm (at least in april when we went)

“Magic Setting and Meal”
Reviewed 30 May 2014

After sailing over from St Martin, we were anxious to tour Anguilla and see how it compared to STM. Most favorably if Straw Hat is the standard. We looked at TA to find the Frangipani Hotel and within it is Straw Hat. This ain't your standard beach bar...no, no. The views are stunning from the open air restaurant. The service is professional and proud. Then you get to the food. As good as you will find anywhere. The menu is creative. It is well prepared and it is presented beautifully. Then there is that view again. A must visit when in Anguilla. And yes, it rivals anything we have visited in STM, or elsewhere in the Caribbean. Enjoy.

“Great location, good food, average service”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

Great view, wonderful sunset...compared to other excellent restaurants in Anguilla the food is ok but nothing more. The service is not gentle and friendly. You feel to be in a paradise and normally the people in Anguilla are always smiling and relaxed... Not here. As a plus: less expensive compared to many others local competitors.

“Great Food….Great Atmosphere”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

The definition of island charm! Straw Hat sits on a patio at the Frangipani Beach Resort on the north (Atlantic) side of the island right on the beach. The staff was extremely friendly and the food was great. I had the seafood pasta which was very flavorful and rich (~$28) and the Mrs. had the lobster (~$52) which had some fantastic sides.
