Anguilla Dining - Opinions on Hibernia? Flavours? Straw Hat for dinner?

AndreaPB | May 24, 2013 07:47 AM

We are on our way back to Anguilla in a couple weeks and I am planning our dining while we are there. Veya is always at the top of our list and Jacala is a close second vying for first. Both have been amazing in the past. Sandbar and Blanchard's Beach Shack are great for our more casual nights. Koal Keel it appears is sadly closed. We are going to skip Blanchard's as the prices do seem to have gone beyond reasonable. So we have a couple more nights free.
Interested in opinions on Hibernia, which shows up first on tripadvisor but gets little buzz here, where I put more faith in the postings.
Also, the newly reopened Flavours at LaVue is getting incredible reviews on TripAdvisor as well but none of them with specifics about the food (oddly) and the menu looks like it would required very careful navigation to put together a meal that was unique and interesting.
Finally, having eaten at StrawHat in the past I was not terribly impressed but it gets mentioned on chowhound again and again. Eating there makes me feel like I am on the patio of a country club. What am I missing? Is it really more for brunch? Do we need to make sure we ask for a table closer to the water?
Please give me the informed opinions I trust chowhound posters for!
