We brought friends for this different experience in St Maarten. You can go to fish or steak restaurants throughout the island, but the food here is special. I don't understand the reviews of not enough food or poor ambience. You're on an island people! Enjoy something different. We all loved our food and will be back.

Larger portions are needed in order for this place to be viable. What food there was was tasty, but at that price I don't expect to come home and watch my (not greedy) other half go to the fridge for a snack. The wine list is too limited too. Red, white or rose isn't OK with food at those prices.

Crave started serving breakfast this week. Unusual and delicious menu choices. It was outstanding and definitely worth a visit for the gourmet vacationer. Presentation tells it all, flavor will have you coming back. Enjoy!

Certainly a group of 24 will test and stress your staff and kitchen. Everything was superb...obviously this husband and wife team show their passion from the time you enter to the time you leave. .

Lucky me - I got to celebrate my birthday in Sint Maarten. Part of the deal was that I got to choose which restaurant we would go to. This place was already at the top of my list for Simpson Bay based on past visits, so the decision kind of made itself. Crave did not disappoint! This place has some... More

Every single dish... More
