We had a wonderful meal here. Don't miss out on the onion soup. Amanda was amazing, she helped us get a cab and was very welcoming throughout the meal.

One of the best dinner we had in St Maarten, portions were just right, my filet was fork tender, and dessert was delicious.

All I can say is pick up a cookbook by the world renown chef before you leave. This is a place we visit two or three times each time we visit this island. It's a family owned restraunt and the Mother of the chef greets you every time you visit. My favorite starter is the hot and cold soup you... More

What an evening! As we entered Temptation, a grand piano was located near the entrance and the pianist was expertly playing soft background music. We were seated quickly and the experience began! Service was outstanding and the food was unique and expertly prepared. All six of us agreed that Temptation was one of the best places we dined at and... More

We did not enjoy our experience at Temptation. I read reviews and was expecting a great meal but left disappointed. The waitress was poorly trained and was very unwelcoming. Not sure if it was because her English was poor but she just was not friendly. I knew we were in trouble service wise when she could barely open a bootle... More

I will get to the food in a moment... it is so nice to dine with live piano music being played. A touch you do not find in resturants today. For some romantic, for others soothing after a tough day at the beach. Now to the food. You can tell a great deal of thought was put into the creation... More

My wife and I celebrated out 10th anniversary at Temptation, which was recommended to us by the keeper of the villa that we stayed at during our visit. We were treated to a remarkable meal, outstanding service and a personal visit from the chef to wish us well on the occasion of our visit. The grilled salmon was amazing, as... More

Amazing experience last night at Temptation. The ambiance is sophisticated and perfect with subtle, live piano music in the background. Cocktails are to die for, serious mixologist behind the bar, the basil lemon drops were delicious! We chose Temptation last night because there was a guest chef from Massachusetts that we have been dying to try and voila he was... More
