Read the reviews on here & we decided to give Crave a try. Ace was sick, but his cousin stepped in & did a great job explaining the menu. We had a few appetizers: hummus, olives & crab samosa & then I had the mediterranean salad with a chicken kabob (the most incredibly tasteful & melt in your mouth chicken)... More

My wife and I stayed in Simpson Bay Villas and were walking around the area and saw Crave, so we googled the menu. After browsing the menu we decided to take a chance, and very glad we did! My wife had the braised beef and I had the lamb, both cooked perfectly. The owner is a great guy, and he... More

My wife must strictly eat gluten free, so travel is always a bit of a challenge. We have been to St. Martin numerous times and were excited to see the excellent reviews of Crave. Alex made the trip an adventure, briefly explaining the unique menu. His staff provided attentive care. The food was really tasteful and plentiful. And best of... More

What a dinner! I'm already planning my next visit while on the island. Ace welcomes you with knowledge and a smile - just like a family dinner. He preps you for the dining experience and on come the drinks. The prep is required for most non-foodies as the flavour explosions may make some people waffle and question their choice of... More

Had dinner with my wife, owner takes very hands on approach and really wants you to be happy with your meal. Excellent customer service and food was delicious- not the type of food you can find everyday.

The Moroccan and White Elephant specialty cocktails, which were served in steel mugs, were excellent! The food was incredible from appetizers of cucumber greenies and eggplant with pita, to yogurt choices to cleanse your pallet, to entrees of chicken and lamb shank!! Dessert of shredded carrots (yes, carrots) and heavy whipped cream was a delectable ending! The decor and wall... More

You might not be thinking Mediterranean when you are in the carribean but this place is a must visit. Ace is fantastic and will guide you through their eating experience. Great atmosphere, outdoor dining. Gets the hummus, eggplant dip for sure, all four mains we had were amazing and the prices were reasonable. Don't miss this one.

We found Crave on Trip Advisor and since we were staying close by, we decided to check it out for dinner that night on a morning walk. Found the chef and owner Naz already in and working on the dinner menu for that night. She was very enthusiastic about the menu we decided to give it a try. Our large... More

Let me start by saying that I am not an adventurous eater by any means.. One of our large group (13) suggested we try Crave since they met the owners earlier in the day and were impressed. From the second we walked in later that same night we were treated like stars! The room is small yet inviting, almost like... More

While waking thru town one morning we decided to stop in to check out the place and discuss reservations for a large group. We were met by a very pleasant woman (owner and executive chef) that was excited to describe the cuisine. She was there early because the food needs 3 hours to prepare every day. She presented us with... More
