Straw Hat Restaurant

Anguilla Restaurants

Located on beautiful Meads Bay, Anguilla, British West Indies, Straw Hat is celebrating over 15 seasons in Anguilla! Our Chef brings his unique and eclectic tastes to the menu while your hosts Anne & Peter Parles and the staff will make you feel at home in our relaxed, unpretentious and fun atmosphere. Come and see why Cond Nast Traveler named Straw Hat as one of the 50 Hot New Restaurants of the World. Great food, great service and a truly memorable part of your Anguilla experience await you at Straw Hat!

"Great Seafood and a spectacular view cap the dining experience at the Straw Hat Restaurant... The freedom to be imaginative has allowed American chef Bryan Malcarney to give a twist to the expected crayfish by presenting one version of it in a Spring Roll." - Bon Appetit

American Expats Anne and Peter Parles opened Straw Hat March 1997 only to see it squashed by Hurricane Georges the following year. Their response? They started over. This time the couple recruited chef Marc Alvarez, veteran of New York's Aureole. When Straw Hat reopened in December, it had definitely gone top hat. Though the decor is fun - straw hats hang from chandeliers, and the bar has shell-filled sandboxes for diners to play with while they wait for tables - the menu is very serious. A full dinner can be made of appetizers alone: tuna tartar and smoked salmon with avocado, braised octopus on a bed of arugula, Anguillian crayfish spring roll with marinated seaweed salad. Entrees include prawns in red curry sauce with shitake mushrooms, bok choy and basmati rice steamed in a banana leaf and a crispy snapper and shrimp tempura with stir fried vegetables served on top of a bowl of Thai bouillon with udon noodles. -50 Hot Tables - The World's Most Exciting Restaurants - Conde Nast Traveler

Waterfront Tables - At Straw Hat, one of the prettiest restaurants on the island, you can watch stingrays glide gracefully between the pilings, flapping their great gray wings. - Gourmet

Mariah Eats Here - The vibe at Straw Hat makes everyone mellow! Ms. Carey was happy to sign autographs for the waitstaff during a recent trip. - LIfe & Style
