This was an awesome restaurant. The Chefs mother was such a lovely lady. We mentioned we were here for our friends birthday and she reached over and hugged my friend, wishing her a happy birthday and how much she appreciated us being at Temptations to celebrate. After dinner they brought her a dessert with a sparkler and the piano man... More

A must go to restaurant when we are in St. Maarten. Food is always delicious, especially the french onion soup. We are always greeted with a hug from the chef's mom and a handshake for Jack his dad. Piano player adds a special touch.

Celebrated a friend's Birthday here. A nice atmosphere with white tablecloths, great piano music, friendly and attentive service, delicious food. Drinks were nicely crafted and unique. The chef came out to say hello, and his charming mother was our host. A really nice experience for our party.

One of the best if not the best restaurant on the island. Have eaten there for over 10 years and if you want fine dining go and enjoy.

We enjoyed more than I can say. As longtime strict vegetarians it is usually quite a challenge to find a nice meal apart from the always served pastas. We started with the caramelized onion soup and the Hot n Cold Soup Chilled gazpacho together with Cuban black bean soup in the same bowl with goat cheese empanada which was quite... More

Heard a local speaking about this restaurant and we were not disappointed. The food was amazing and the piano player made the night. The service was perfect. We don't mind paying the higher price when the food is so good!

A warm, and intimate surrounding, with the central focus being a piano player! The food was genuinely good, prepared in a kitchen only a few yards from the tables. (it's quite a small restaurant, but deservedly loved by many locals, who are all greeted as old friends. The staff was the only weak point, running around like confused bees. But... More

While we've frequented this restaurant (along with its predecessor Rare), it has never failed to hold up to our expectations. Always delicious and always the best service. A piano playing as you eat. You must order the rare tuna and filet. Always a special treat to eat here.

Have eaten there a few times. It is a pretty place but if you eat outside you are looking at a parking lot. the food is good but expensive.
