“Great food and atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013

Temptations, and it's sister restaurant next door, both offer solid fine dining. The owner chats with everyone and makes them feel right at home. I had the Angus Short Ribs, tender and rich, but the service over Orzo Mac n Chs didn't work that well. A more conventional starch perhaps? My wife had an awesome and perfectly cooked Rack of Lamb. All with the background music of a piano man who seemed to know every song. It is little pricy but you get your money's worth.

“Amazing food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

This was one of the best dinner spots my boyfriend and I visited while vacationing in St.Martin. Staying at the Radisson Blu we took the nearly 30 minute drive to Temptation. Everything at this restaurant was excellent. From the moment we walked in we were greeted by the hostess and taken to our table. (I would suggest making a reservation.) Service was delightful and the ambience, incredible. It was upscale, which made sense as it's located in the Cupecoy area, but it was worth the price.

The food was exquisite! Absolutely amazing caribbean cuisine with an asian twist.
From appetizer, to entree, to the dessert... everything was delicious.

“Good eats”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013

Our third visit to Temptation and the food did not disappoint. Love the onion soup. The restaurant looked a little worn since the first time, but the food and drinks still held to the high standard we anticipated.

“Epicurean delight!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2013

Had a great dinner (as always) recently.. Food is excellent (braised short ribs are to die for)
The atmosphere is elegant & lovely. Presentation is outstanding , all the way through.. Service is great.. Everything you would expect from a hi end restaurant. On the costly side for sure, but well worth it. Great piano music, romantic.. A favorite of ours.. Never miss a visit when we are in St. Maarten! A must try!!
