Finally went to Scarlet two weeks ago; this restaurant has been on my list for about a year now. The place was packed, good thing we made a reservation because our seat were literally the only ones opened. The outside appearance doesn't do the inside justice, the decor and layout were simple yet sophisticated. The wait staff was very attentive,... More

This unassuming looking building nearly opposite The House in Barbados from the outside looks most unimpressive. Go inside it is fabulous deco. Wonderful service and great cocktails. You will need to book as people keep going back. The food is a mixture of traditional and different. I had fish pie, last time and it was fabulous. Chicken skewers with peanut... More

Very popular venue, which needs either a booking beforehand or arrive early by 7.00pm. Very good menu, cocktails available which were customised to the month. Service charge was automatically added to our bill, a bit annoying but understand why some restaurants do this.

Went rice for dinner to Scarlets. If we had gone earlier in our holiday we would have gone more often. Good excellent both in choice, quality and presentation. Service excellent will be returning next year.

We have been to Scarlet several times and always have a great experience. It is a very popular restaurant, not very big, and advanced reservations are a must. Our "foodie" friends from Trinidad wanted to try it. The atmosphere is lively and fun. The martini list is extensive and very creative. The owners Sophie and Stephan are genuine and lovely.... More

From outside u would not give this place another look , a typical Bajan shack. Do not be mislead ,the interior is beautifully decorated . Yes it is themed in red . We visited on a Friday night and luckily we had booked. It was packed. Nevertheless the service and food were both first class. Bajan Welsh rarebit, skewered salmon... More

At first we could not find the door into the establishment and when were inside it was amazing. Everything was red with jackie is Onassis large photo facing us four times. It was so popular we had to sit around the bar area which was exciting as the boys were making cocktails and shaking the contents for all it was... More

People staying at our hotel recommended that we gave Scarlets a try, and we were so pleased we did. There are so many fine dining, expensive restaurants in Barbados, it was so nice to find this casual, but excellent hidden gem! The restaurant is situated across the road from The House and Daphne's, small & obviously 'scarlet' in colour...Good atmosphere,... More
