Romantic spot overlooking Meads beach. We had a 7 PM dinner reservation one night and there was a band playing when we first got here. Service was friendly and attentive and the food was good. For appetizer we had Ceviche & Crispy Plantain Chips. The plantains were delicious but the ceviche was a little bland and needed a little something extra. Entrees were simple grilled snapper that came with asparagus on the side, and prawns steeped in red curry. Both were very good. Kahlúa ice cream pie for dessert was OK. Overall a good meal. We would return.

We selected Straw Hat to enjoy my birthday dinner while on the island. From the staff to the food, it was exceptional. Sprocka was playing that evening and was such a pleasure to top off the night. Our kids love Straw Hat because they enjoy playing on the beach while we wait for our meal. Lastly, a special thanks to Doris for making sure our evening was so special :)

I'd heard good things, but sometimes recommendations are hyperbole. Not this time.

Great setting overlooking the Meads Bay. Attentive and friendly service. The food was outstanding and I'm pretty picky. Our group started with a nice Sauvignon Blanc. The rolls they brought were tasty.

For starters two of our group had the Caesar salad and I had the Big eye tuna flatbread. Mine was delicious:
Tuna was pounded flat carpaccio style on a thin crisp tortilla.

For entree, one had tuna steak simple grilled rare with ginger vinaigrette; another had simply grilled Mahi-mahi; the other had steamed red snapper. I opted for another starter, the tuna tartare.

The simply grilled entrees came with a choice of two sides. Our group chose coconut rice (a must have), puréed sweet potato, and soft polenta.

This spot not only lived up to the hype, it exceeded it. I would definitely go back.

We only ate breakfast here as our resort's breakfast menu was limited and it got monotonous. Both our experiences here were very good. The omelets were actually excellent, light, fluffy, fresh and flavorful. The French roast was very good as well. It's a great setting right on the beach. Service was really good too!
