Walked from our hotel to dine here. Asked if we had a reservation but we did not have one. They were kind enough to seat us but I believe that was because we were there earlier than the normal dinner crowd. If you eat later make a reservation. Casual dress (not shorts and T-shirts). As someone else mentioned before there... More

Unusual looking (Scarlet!) building on the main beach road through Paynes Bay. Interesting decor (as noted by other reviewers), but it works and makes a nice atmosphere. The table layout is very geometric ( two rows plus a row of seats at the bar) and it takes a bit of time to get used to the way the place looks... More

1st time visit to Scarlet last night & what a great time we all had ! I have been visiting the West Coast in Barbados for 6 years & somehow have never frequented Scarlet before last night . Atmosphere was amazing with a little background music, great decor and the chitter chatter of all the tables seemingly having a good... More

Food was just OK - two of us had burger which didn't have any taste. Seating a little cramped. Decor good. Probably won't try it again.

Scarlet is such a great place for a romantic dinner or hang out with friends and start up the night! It offers a great selection of cocktails and the menu is amazing! It can be quite expensive but it worth a lot. If you go over there, ask for James Cuke, he can give you a great recommendation in cocktails... More

We had an enjoyable evening last night at Scarlets. A very relaxed dining experience with great food selection and service. Heading back again on Wednesday as we enjoyed it so much.

Scarlet is a must visit for us every time we come to Barbados. The unassuming exterior belies the great atmosphere inside. High stools with great black & white mosaic tables, the full length bar, the attentive staff, all in the entire place has a great buzz about it. Painted throughout in Scarlet with one wall adorned with portraits of Jackie... More

We had a great experience at Scarlett last week, seafoods for starter we're delicious and well seasoned, our steaks, perfectly cooked and tender. Good ambiance and Stephane does everything for a memorable evening. We loved it.

Scarlet is usually on our 'places to go' list when we come to Barbados. We went last night, had booked a table for 8.15, got there just after 8 and the table was ready. It's not a fine dining restaurant, but doesn't pretend to be. It's fun and quirky, quite loud when it's full, which it was last night, we... More

We have really enjoyed our meals at Scarlet. The pasta with capers and tomatoes is excellent. If you like small plates, you'll love their take on Welsh rarebit, arancini, and shrimp toast. They make a mean mojito as well. Make sure to make reservations early as there are not a lot of seats and it's always busy.
