One reviewer wrote: “Brilliant place to visit if u have a sweet tooth. The staff were super friendly, helpful and energetic. The portions were massive and anything we couldn't eat there they were happy to box up to take away. I would recommended it for families, daters or for friends looking for a meeting place.”

The most popular choice by far was this ice cream parlour in Ventnor. One customer said: “What a wonderful ice cream parlour, we have lived on the island a year and recommended Crave by friends. We have the Ventnor Rocher, Snickers and unicorn ice creams and they were delicious. My 3 year old daughter dropped hers on the floor and when I went to buy her a replacement the lovely lady gave her the ice cream and would not take payment, what a lovely lady. This ice cream parlour are friendly and really care about their customers. We will definitely be returning. An absolute must visit if you are in Ventnor.”
