“Try something different, Try Crave!”
Reviewed May 11, 2013

Crave is by far one of our favorite restaurants in SXM if not THE favorite one.
It's finally something different with exotic flavors that are out of this world. It truly is a little "party in your mouth" when you taste any of the unique and delicious dishes on their menu.
On top of that, the ambiance, nice music, good prices, great cocktail menu and super friendly service, make this restaurant a must to visit.
See you very soon again for some good food guys!

“A variety of flavors and new twists on traditional dishes.”
Reviewed May 11, 2013 via mobile

I loved the lamb schwarma with their homemade sauce so much i needed to write this review (Its actually not a schwarma because the meat doesnt come off a giant verticle rotisserie, its cooked individually, so they call it a stuffed pocket). We also had the steak was perfect and with great flavors infused.

Its a smaller restaurant and you get great personalized service, a great stop for dinner on the airport road, right before you get to the entrance for pelican!

“Crave is Great!”
Reviewed May 6, 2013

Crave is my favorite restaurant in St. Maarten! Delicious food, tasty drinks and fantastic ambiance!
I have tried several of the dishes and enjoyed each and every one of them! I have dined inside and outside, both experiences were equally enjoyable. I highly recommend a visit to Crave if you are in St. Maarten, you will not be disappointed.

“The Best Restaurant in St. Maarten”
Reviewed May 4, 2013

I have been to St. Maarten 3 times, and each time went to Crave.

Tried a few different dishes, and they were all delicious. The mojitos are my favorite in the whole wide world. The owners are very friendly. I will always go back to St. Maarten, and I will always go back to Crave!

“We always crave Crave!!!!”
Reviewed May 4, 2013

The food is outstanding! We were there a few months ago when it first opened. We went back 3 times it was soooo good (and we were staying at an all inclusive!) Whatever you order make sure it comes with Crave Sauce - it is THE BEST! Loved eating outside in the garden. The service was excellent, Naz and Ace are wonderful hosts and are there to make sure your experience is the best you will have on the island. Highly recommended to everybody going to the island. Everything is fresh, and the prices are great too.

You can't go just once,
