My wife and I enjoyed this restaurant. She had the fish pie, and I had the mahi-mahi special. The atmosphere is pleasant, and it began filling up quickly. Must be a popular place.

What a lively place this is - packed out and you certainly need a reservation. Food more simple than most of the other top restaurants around this area, but its a real change and everything is cooked very well. Started with prawn toasts with chilli dip and my husband had delicious oriental spring rolls which were light and not at... More

it was amazing to step into this beautiful red (scarlet) bar/ restaurant when from the outside it looks like a small unkempt red house. The service and food was fantastic. We tried to go again a few nights later but it was already booked out. You need to make a reservation here. I would go again.

Scarlett looks in inviting from the outside but once you step inside you are struck by a lively bright interior in bold colours. Tables are close together out of necessity and this adds to the atmosphere. Food is unpretentious and well prepared. Simpler than many of the other fine dining restaurants along the west coast. If you want something a... More

Nice first impression. Service was good. Food was good . However it was not good value because it was the same price as waterfront restaurants and the food was only ok and not plentiful. We had 2 cocktails, average starters and fish and a burger for approx £170 and 1 bottle of wine. This is not quirky dining, this is... More

Thanks James for the great service, you always do a great job and time our food just perfectly. I recommend for starters either their Bajan fish cakes - deep-fried salted cod fish cakes w. 'calypso' dip or their Asian marinated chicken skewers w. warm peanut sauce or both, For dinner I loved their Local fresh fish of the day, the... More

We came in for dessert and drinks and were treated to delicious treats in a one-of-a kind setting! This restaurant gives a fun night out that keeps us coming back every trip. Great menu of food and cocktails to choose from. The service we received here (James) was the best we've experienced on te island, hands down. Thanks so much... More

From the moment you walk into Scarlet you are greeted with a warm smile. The cocktails are superb, food is plentiful and varied, we all had different starters and mains, The goats cheese souffle was so tasty. we opted for the tinis for pudding and thank goodness we had a driver!

Dear Customer, I am sorry that you did not enjoy your experience at Scarlet. Your booking was one of the last bookings of the night - this is true! The atmosphere is driven by the people, so as people leave…it does gets quieter! That is out of our hands really. You did choose to come at that time. You mentioned... More

We tried to get a table here for a few dates without success (due to its popularity) so we went and had dinner at the bar. What an amazing place - great tasty food, fabulous decor and the service from the staff was amazing. Don't be put off by eating at the bar - there is lots of room and... More
