“Food you will "Crave" for”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

We were in St Martin a couple of weeks ago. We came upon his amazing restaurant, just by chance and thought we would try it out. Wow! are we glad that we did. It was the best food and exprience we encountered whilst there.

From the moment we entered the outside eating area, we were greeted with a warm and very pleasant welcome. There is a dining area inside and outside, but we decided to eat outside in the lovely warm climate. We sat outside in what I can only describe as chic. It reminded me of a French bistro with the stylsh chairs.

Our food order was taken by Ace, who is co-owner with his wife Naz and she does all the cooking. We were told that we would have a little wait time as all the food is freshly prepared (apart from the stews which apparently had 6 hours of cooking with herbs and spices) but would be worth it. He wasn't wrong, the food is to die for and the flavours are out of this world.
We enjoyed the whole experience so much that we visited Crave 3 times whilst we were there. Each visit was as great as the first and the hospitality shown to us was almost overwhelming.
Crave has not been open very long in Simpson Bay and the word needs to get out there to all the people who have not yet tried this fantastic gem of a place.

Thank you for making our holiday so great Ace. Good look with the Tenerife move and hope to see you there at some point. Let us know when you get sorted and we will definitely visit you and spread the good word.

“Craving crave!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2013

My friends and I stopped by Crave as we were looking for someplace to eat in the area. We walked in and were promptly greeted by Ace, who later introduced us to his wife Naz (the INCREDIBLE and beautiful chef!) We were a large group but there was something on the menu for everyone. Prices were great, service was great, and the food was excellent. After sitting outside we relocated to their outdoor seating which was beautiful. Warm night, drinks, good company, and good food! Big thanks to Ace and Naz for a great night and for being so friendly. Definitely check this place out!
