The food is ok but certainly not worth the wait from the unattentive staff. The food took 45 minutes to come out. Waiter didn't bother to ask if we wanted more to drink. Ambience is nice and best part was live music. Better off at Blanchards for their food.

Everyone that waited on us were just so friendly and happy. Delicious food mahi mahi and salads. The beach was awesome and if you ate at restaurant the lounge chairs were free. Great deal. Went snorkeling.

The food itself was excellent; it was definitely up to par with its price tag. Two cocktails and two entrees at dinner will easily run you over $100, but again the food is delicious. Also, the location with the exquisite view of Mead's Bay is spectacular. I'd highly recommend if you're looking for a romantic dinner.

We ate here 3 times (dinner x 2, breakfast x 1) while staying at Turtles Nest as it was about a 30 second walk down the beach. The service, view, and food are all outstanding. Our dinners included lobster, crayfish, and Mahi Mahi. The portions were generous and the food was delicious. The owner/manager along with the wait staff checked on us frequently to ensure everything was good and to see if anything else was needed. Anguilla is known for outstanding restaurants and Straw Hat stuck out to us...that says something. I'm thrilled that we were so close and highly recommend SH to anybody visiting Anguilla. If you want to see a gorgeous sunset over Meads Bay, set a reservation for 6:30 or so...stunning!

Great place for any daytime meal. It's right on the beach in beautiful Meads Bay. Fresh squeezed mimosa and veggie frittata were excellent. I wish we had more time to go back.
