We've made it a point to dine at Crave when we are on the island and did so again in January. If you've never tried Persian food I highly recommend Crave. Persian food is very fresh tasting and delicious and Nas, the chef/owner makes the best. Nas' husband and co-owner, Ace runs the dining room and is very helpful and... More

I'm usually one to appreciate fine dining and a welcoming feel when eating out. I was this restaurant by a friend, and without a doubt the service was outstanding. The atmosphere was pleasant, and due to the fact that I was out solo, the services and waiters did well at keeping me entertained during my time there.

New menu from last year. Excellent choices. Da Moroccan cocktail excellent (think of Mojito made with vodka and ginger with loads of mint). Selection of three appetizers and one main with salad will serve two and not leave you hungry. Many exotic dishes on the menu. Open also for breakfast - that menu is not your typical breakfast menu but... More
