A friend recommended Temptations to us. We were very impressed by the location in Cupecoy Bay. The parking is paved, close and the parking lot is monitored by security guards. Valet parking is also available. We were promptly greeted and seated. 5 star elegance and service. The menu is well rounded. Our food was excellent and cooked to perfection. To complete a great evening, the bill was very reasonable, in fact less than several other places we dined at that didn't even have air conditioning. A 5 star experience!

We always dine here when on the island and are never disappointed. The chef always has a nice menu. Seafood and steaks are some of my favorites here. The service is always friendly and very nice at this family restaurant.

We have been coming to this restaurant since 2002 and the place was always a culinary highlight of our visit to St. Martin. On our last visit we had a crab cake appetizer, salmon entree and chocolate dessert. Everything was delicious. The salmon piece seemed to be about 4 oz, the entree could benefit from a bit more generous size. Inside walls could use a fresh coat of paint, but otherwise everything including service was 5 stars.

We were greeted with a big warm smile from the hostess after entering, our waitress was very friendly and knowledgeable, the food was awesome between our party of 4 we ordered the lamb chops, the lobster paella, filet mignon, onion soup, spinach ravioli and other great dishes, all the dishes were well prepared and delicious also with an extensive wine list. Our mom had a great time and we will definitely return
