I had the meat lovers breakfast $12. It was very tasty, no need for seasoning which was great. The dinner can get very pricey ($25-$35) but it is good and the owner goes above and beyond to make sure the menu is fully explained and...More

Crave is simply, unequivocally an excellent restaurant. We've been here at least a half a dozen times on four separate trips to SXM. The food is CONSISTENTLY spectacular, which to us, is the sign of a quality restaurant - exactly as great as you remember!...More

Our dinner at Crave last week was outstanding from beginning to end. The meatball appetizer and the shrimp kabob and chicken breast in pomegranate sauce were delicious. And the dessert (a special sponge cake creation) was really good. But no review of Crave would be...More

we just walked in but it was reasonably early. It is a small place so a reservation might be a good idea especially at a peak time.

They may be all cash now? They couldn't take credit cards due to some bank issue in December. Casual dress, very good service and food. No specific children's menu. They may fix kids something but is better for adults.
