“Foodie heaven Persia comes to St Maarten via Canada and it's amazing”
Reviewed December 24, 2013

We made our way in pouring rain and thunder and lightening to be greeted at the door by the chef Owner who charmed us and fed us the most amazing meal. Crave's cuisine would hold its own in any major City in the World. We have eaten in most of them and Crave ranks near the top of the best list. Order the lamb shank the roasted eggplant the kebabs or anything that appeals. The menu is perfectly edited.

“Fantastic experience”
Reviewed December 22, 2013 via mobile

We loved crave. It had such a wonderful atmosphere, amazing food and great value. The owner has managed to bring a tiny bit of the best of Toronto to st. Maarten and fused it magically with an island flare. We recommend this restaurant to all. You wont be disappointed.

“Excellent Food! Excellent Service!”
Reviewed December 21, 2013

This was a great discovery for us being of Middle Eastern descent. We expected it to be very touristy and overpriced. It definitely was not. We were greeted by our waiter who I believe may have been the owner. His skill and friendliness were above and beyond. The appetizer plate we had with pomegranate and pistachio meatballs, hummus and an eggplant treat were special and absolutely delicious. I had the chicken breast with ground walnut and pomegranate and my wife had the chicken breast braised with plums, apricots infused with saffron rose water. Outstanding taste and presentation. We'll always go here for dinner when we travel to the island. DON'T MISS IT!

“This place is a chefs place; excellent Flavours ”
Reviewed December 17, 2013 via mobile

This place is the number one restaurant destinations on the island. Real foodie joint ran by a great team of husband and wife. It's what dreams are made when hear their story, dynamic place for art lovers and poetry books (Rumi) presents the deep roots and history of this unique cuisine; Start by the chef platter and stay away from familiar faces on the menu; order some of the exotic dishes and make sure you finish either carrot dessert :) stay classy food lovers
