Excellent food! Great service! Hidden away in paynes bay, we only found it on our third visit to Barbados. Would recommend to anyone!

I first visited Scarlet three or four years ago and found it very average but thought I'd give it another go so as to ensure I wasn't being too harsh. The food is average and haute cuisine it ain't. The ambience is very mid 80s as is the food. Three of us had the shrimp curry in a coconut sauce.... More

This was our 10th or 11th visit to Scarletts. It is quirky with a very original menu which suited us on this visit because we'd had a late lunch and weren't quite hungry enough for a standard evening meal. The menu, which is basically a very original nibbles menu with some mains, which was perfect for what we needed at... More

Let the pie cool, it reaches the heat of the centre of Vesuvius. Delightful nibbly food, good burgers and lots of choice on the menu. Charming bar staff who made substantial cocktails including an Apple Jack and comforting espresso martini's. Good ambiance and tidy service.

Scatlet is right outside The House handy if you want something to eat without having to go into Holetown. Don't judge a book by its cover as from the outside its nothing to indicate its a restaurant, but step inside and you will be surprised. The food was well presented and well cooked. worth a visit and we would go... More

We were only here for after dinner drinks, though my wife buckled and had some of the seared tuna starter, which she loved. Cocktails were 90% original, never before seen by me. Try the Scarlet Rocks. The remaining 10% were significant twists on existing classics, though the very friendly and knowledgeable mixologists could make anything you wanted. Fair prices too,... More

Quirky little place, fun decor. Decent food not too fancy. Laid back service like most of the island! No windows which may put some people off.

Great local bar. Upscale with fantastic cocktails. The atmosphere is chill and classic with a New York City feel inside. Step outside and your just a short road across from the ocean. Try the Flirtini!

Looking for a small, intimate space that feels like somewhere only the locals go? That's Scarlet. A fantastic menu with hand crafted cocktails that shouldn't be missed. **If you like burgers, theirs is to die for.

We had a nice night, one bartender was really friendly and spoke to us for a while, burgers were good, we got drinks and an appetizer. When we got the bill were surprised to see that they took to liberty of adding gratuity in addition to the 12.5% VAT, all in adding another $100 Bds ($50 US). Our total bill... More

Domenge, Owner at Scarlet, responded to this review

Dear Sir, We just wanted to clarify that we did not ADD the VAT in addition to the bill amount. The VAT (value added tax) is INCLUDED in our prices on our menu. It is just simply broken down on the receipt. Our service charge IS the ONLY charge added to the bill. So, there is no way that you... More
