A MUST-TRY restaurant on the island of Barbados! Simply the best! We were staying across the street at The Tamarind and stumbled upon Scarlet on the 2nd night of our trip- it was ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! The ambiance is so cool- it is a small and intimate space, and the staff was very accommodating and sweet. Their variety of cocktails was... More

My partner and I visited here for dinner during our stay at the Fairmont Royal. We looked up places to dine beforehand when booking our trip of a lifetime. It wasn't the easiest place to find but once inside this place we were truly amazed by the scarlet red and trendy boutique quality it has. The food tastes delicious and... More

Food was very good . Good atmosphere and a different feeling to most restaurants on the island . Service was not great as we had to remind the staff about a few orders and we waited for drinks later in the night but we would definitely go back again .

Although it doesn't look much from the outside, this little red marvel was comfortable, featured a varied menu with superb food and very keenly priced to boot. There's ample car parking and the specials really are special! Highly recommended. We have tried The Cliff and Daphne's over the road but this one is our favourite restaurant in Barbados. We will...

This is a small restaurant but it fills up and buzzes when full. Keen staff keep the service going. Good food, good wine list and an excellent play list make this worth a repeat visit. Food quality not up to Cariba, but well presented from a good menu. One or two stars on the wine list (Silver Oak is well... More

This is a small restaurant in a converted chattle house so you must book. Decor is great, as were the service, cocktails and food. Must have the truffle buttered popcorn with cocktails on arrival - amazing!
