A Farewell Lunch at the Straw Hat

There are dozens of high-end beach restaurants on Anguilla. One of the most beautiful is the Straw Hat, in the Frangipani Beach Resort. We had lunch there on our last full day on Anguilla. Even though this restaurant is located near the middle of busy Meads Bay, when you sit at your table on the…

Geraud’s Patisserie

I went to our little local bakery … Le Bon Pain … to pick up our morning croissants and baguette, only to find that they are closed on Wednesdays. Tragedy! The first time we stayed on Anguilla, we rented an apartment in Blowing Point. Our local bakery on that trip was Geraud’s, a very popular…

Katouche

But it is a mile long and is still quite gorgeous. We walked the entire length … and then Steve “took the plunge” … 🙂

On Da Rocks

“On Da Rocks” is one of three beach-bar-restaurants in the heart of Island Harbour. It is a great place to look out at the fishing boats while enjoying a drink and a snack. And yes, the water really is that impossible color!

Birthday Lunch at CuisinArt

“CuisinArt” is the name of one of the dozen luxury resorts here on Anguilla. No relation to the food-mixer of the same name! When we were here six years ago, Jana & I visited CuisinArt on her birthday and had a very pleasant lunch in the open-air restaurant by the pool, followed by a guided…
