Anguilla is arguably best-known for two things: great beaches and top-tier cuisine. Within its mere 35 square miles, the island is home to a number of fine-dining establishments.
Among all of these options, there are a few standouts that always impress. Straw Hat Restaurant tops my list. Its location in Meads Bay and romantic ambiance would be enough to attract couples, even with average cuisine. But in addition to a beautiful setting, the food is some of the best on the island, and the chef is always serving fresh, innovative specials. Add to that a great cocktail list (and an excellent bartender), live music on some nights, and the sounds of the Caribbean in the background, and you have the making of a perfect evening.
Tip: Try the off-menu old-fashioned rum punch, and don't miss the ahi tuna banh mi at lunch.
