Vibrant cocktail bar.

Scarlet's was directly across the street from our hotel, The House. From the outside, it doesn't look that great however inside is cool and vibrant. We popped in for some pre-dinner cocktails (which was great) on the recommendation of our hotel staff and ended up staying for dinner. They were... read more

With a daughter called Scarlett it was inevitable that we would eat at Scarlet! We did not regret the choice, the setting was a delight, with quirky décor and pleasant air conditioning. The cocktails were sublime, especially the apple daiquiri! I ate the coconut prawn curry which was AMAZING! So tasty and although the rest of the family enjoyed their... More

Enjoyed a family dinner here and we all really enjoyed it from the decor to the quality of the food. One of the best meals of the entire holiday. A good selection of cocktails too.

Great food and service, the lamb dishes are excellent. The drinks are also really good, especially the mojitos! The atmosphere is nice, a bit closed as there are no open windows, but in return you get air conditioning, which is a nice relief for a hot day.

This is a great little find, you would drive straight past if you don't know it is there, the entrance is around the back, and the clue is in the name, it's bright Scarlet. Really cool decor, and the best cocktail bar in Barbados. One will not be enough!

Visited here last a couple of weeks ago. Not your average restaurant as more like a bar with food, but great food it has to be said! Atmosphere when we were there was vibrant and lively, but our teenage kids were made welcome and loved the style of food, particularly the asian twist given to some regular dishes. Staff could...

It an adults bar/restaurant with consistently good food and drinks. A refreshing menu with variety of meat and non meat options. Arancini for starters, has never disappointed. ( the chicken strips were a little... More

We have been to Scarlet a number of times and the food is always excellent! Tonight was no different. We got take out and brought it back to our apartment - the entire menu is available for take out, specials included! A great option and the chicken curry was wonderful.

You wouldn't think this is one the best restaurants on the island from the outside but it's delicious! Local produce, very slick interiors and almost a jazz bar feel to it! Food is perfectly cook and service super speedy. Elegant and chic!

Scarlet is a great place for hanging with friends or having a dinner with that special someone. The vibrant red decor is warm and inviting to all and just automatically relaxes you as soon as you enter. The staff are polite and attentive as well as helpful if you have any questions about the menu. The cocktails are well presented... More
