Sandy Island Restaurant

Voted one of the top five beach bars in the Caribbean; Sandy Island is a tiny spit of sand in the middle of the ocean serving fabulous fresh seafood, with excellent wine and beverage service and 360 degrees of ocean views. It is the ultimate destination for lunch, snorkeling and beach lounging.

We were Lucky enough to be there in low season. All together were only about 11 people on the Island. They said as of November there will be sometimes 200 people there. Not a cheap option, but a nice island.Thank you so much for your kind review. We look forward to seeing again in the future. All the best.

Ken's Pork

Reviewed By Chamst - Orpington

Absolutely mind blowing BBQ food. We sat at the wooden table and ate and ate and ate. Kept getting up for more. We actually took some away back to our hotel and I would say it tasted even better because it had time to sit in its own juices. Get there before the school kids come out as the Q was 4 deep! Please note that it is not only Pork that is served there is chicken as well. Ken's BBQ.

We have been to Straw Hat several times. In recent years we have limited this to late breakfasts since we had a few less than good dinners. We decided to give dinner another try this year. We were again disappointed. The food was not good. Frankly it was quite bland and the best way to describe it is, resort food. The entrees lacked seasoning and were over cooked. There was a potato concoction that had absolutely no flavor and resembled something that would come out of a instant mashed potato box. Service was not good. We needed to remind the waitress we had ordered wine, which did not come until after our dinner had arrived. And dinner arrived before the appetizers or our "pre-dinner" drinks were done. We served ourselves wine during the meal (which I generally don't mind), but there was no one paying attention that the bottle was emptying...then empty, before dinner was complete (despite being turned upside down in the ice bucket). So a second bottle was not ordered. The only thing going for the restaurant was the ocean front location. With all of the great restaurants on the island, we'll not be coming to SH again for many years.

Mango's Seaside Grill

Reviewed By dra54 - boca raton

This place is fantastic. Can't beat the location- right on the water. Great ambience, had excellent service on both our visits
Tried tuna and snapper tartar which were excellent. Had multiple fish dishes for main course - fresh tuna and whole spicy snapper were a 10 out of 10
Force yourself to have desert - the creme brûlée and coconut cheesecake are superstars
Loved it !!!!

Veya Restaurant

Reviewed By WarningU2 - Burlington, Canada

We dined at Veya the other night, despite previous visits being disappointing. This trip's visit was incredible and met my expectations. I had the surf and turf, my wife the butter poached lobster, and our friends the duck and snapper. All our meals were delicious. My steak melted in my mouth and the lobster was cooked to perfection. My wife broke down and had the chocolate cake for dessert, which she loved. Even the service was better and much friendlier. I have always found it to be a little too snooty but not this time.
The one negative I have to say and I am only hoping the manager reads it and rethinks ... We ordered a few extra things I wouldn't normally because I expected to get a discount with our Anguilla card. Other places we have gone and used the card take the 10% off the price on our bill and then we split the cost by putting in two credit cards 50-50. Has not been an issue. I actually mentioned this to our waiter and he said no problem. When the bill came I was informed to use the Anguilla card, I would have to show photo id (a little over the top since my face is on the card) and we couldn't use two credit cards to split the cost. I didn't understand why and still don't when I discussed it at another restaurant. They like me, were shaking our heads.
But despite that one flaw we had an excellent dinner and I have changed my opinion of this place.

Ripples

Reviewed By D S - Galveston, Texas

Ripples is a great local spot on Sandy Ground, combining British cuisine with some great Indian spices and asian elements. Good ambiance and it's not overpriced at all. Jackie is a delightful owner who when prodded has many great stories to tell, having been on island for many years, Would recommend it to everyone visiting Anguilla.

Tasty's Restaurant

Reviewed By swiftmi - Knoxville, Tennessee

What an excellent meal. We stopped in for dinner and we were pleased with the food. We both had the special of the day which was pan seared snapper with a lemongrass sauce on it. Also served with it were mashed potatoes and mixed vegetables. The fish was moist and the sauce was light and flavorful. The potatoes and other vegetables were hot and very good. They serve Johnny cakes before the meal and they are a local item that is very good. The service was good and we will be back.

Jacala Beach Restaurant

Relatively new; gorgeous small beach front restaurant; great food and wine. Chef was previously at mallihouna.

Reviewed By ToddWilliams001 - Waterloo, Illinois

Ok we are only half way through this trip but I have to say and no doubt my wife agrees YOU CAN NOT come here and not eat at this restaurant. Jacques was a great host and his food was knocked out from the lobster soup, the tuna tartar, to the lobster special and last but definitely not least the grilled crayfish. The staff was right on top of things and very polite. How anyone could give this place a less than 5 star is people that would never be satisfied.
The amazing thing is its already again top notch and they have only been open a week today after the destruction.
THANK YOU Jacques for your hospitality and your wonderful food, and staff may your restaurant last a very longtime for people to enjoy.
On another note when a lot of us read these we think " they no somebody there" It was our first time and knew no one just like good food and this place was it.
Enjoy and Bon Apetite.
