Fabulous location and good food Aug 06, 2014
My first impression was what an amazing setting, on the harbour front. However, we waited for at least five minutes before being acknowledged. When they did, we were seated at a table right on the waterfront, however, the table of six seated directly behind me were a little too close for comfort. Throughout the evening my chair was constantly being knocked. Micquella also had a rather ill-placed television screen and speaker directly above her left ear.

We were given menus straight away, we ordered two Samba Sunset cocktails immediately. The service was a tad slow, so much so that when the cocktails eventually arrived we were ready to order our food. When we told the barman this he said that he would send someone over. Again had to wait around 10 minutes or so before a waitress came over to take our food order.

The menu has a varied selection ranging from pasta, pizza and burgers to steaks off the grill and fresh fish dishes. There is also a lunch menu serving sandwiches/baguettes and also a separate child's menu.

Food

We had to wait a good 20 minutes for our starters of bruschetta and fried goats cheese to arrive, I have to say that they were delicious. Service again was a tad slow when clearing the empty plates. Our main courses of Garganelli chicken and Pappardelle Gorgonzola arrived to the table a further 10-15 minutes later. Again a good sized portion and the food of good quality. After dining we did order another two dessert cocktails which arrived to the table a considerable amount of time after ordering. It was also extremely difficult to get anyone's attention when we wanted to request the bill.

Overall Crave has an amazing setting, a good menu which is fairly priced considering the location - our whole meal including drinks came to around €55. The attention to detail not so good ie table settings, lack of cutlery, waiting on service and length of time between serving food and drinks once ordered.
Awesome view
