We stopped here for lunch while on a day trip to Anguilla. Service was great, food was wonderful! I highly recommend the tacos and plantain chips with salsa. So good! Beautiful location too.

We always enjoy Straw Hat. Armel is our favorite server and owner Peter is always there.

Dinner was good, not great. Location is wonderful. Food was better at our hotel, Cap Juluca. So if we go offsite, we look for better food.

We had a wonderful beach front table at the Straw Hat. We finally got to try the grilled local crayfish and it was delicious.

We were highly anticipating this restaurant based upon the reviews. The food was fine, although neither my spouse nor me can remember what we ate, however, the most memorable part of our meal was the service. After sitting down for a few minutes and ordering a drink, which hadn't arrived yet, we were asked what we wanted for dinner. We... More

Our five visits to Anguilla have always included Straw Hat. This time we had a breakfast, lunch and two dinners. All great! Staff is helpful and prompt. Right on Meads Bay. Awesome!

Been coming here for many years. Pricey, yet one of the finest spots on the island. Go for romantic dinners or fun with friends.

Wouldn't come here to celebrate any special occasion but a good dinner spot otherwise. Best tuna flatbread I've ever had.

Amazing. The food was wonderful and service was perfection. Caribbean bliss.....this is a must-go-to restaurant in the beautiful Anguilla. The owner is often in the restaurant; he is a gem and we were welcomed like guests in his home. Lovely place with friends or to celebrate an important life event. Would give Straw Hat my highest recommendation-
