We visited here three years ago and so glad to see it's still here. Great food and service. Fresh shrimp kebabs and a lamb shank that just fell off the bone. Perfect combination of fresh ingredients-- no need to drive to Grand Case for excellent food.

What a wonderful experience. The service and food really fantastic. Slight shame that not busy which we found really strange as couldn't find fault with anything. They even offer a voucher for a free breakfast with every dinner purchased.

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.
