Surprisingly good

When you first pull up you think about popping over the rod and asking in Daphne's if they have a cancellation, but once inside you are greeted by some very friendly and attentive (without being painful) staff. The restaurant is compact but this creates a great atmosphere that when we were in there... read more

Having been coming to Barbados every year for 10 years we had never visited this restaurant. Its hard to describe as once you're inside you could be anywhere. Its not massive but that helps the atmosphere but its not crowded. You have raised booths along one wall the bar along the other wall and round tables in the middle. Well... More

The exterior does not reflect the interior of Scarlet at all. I don't think it is unfair to say that the outside looks a little shabby and to be honest not too inviting. However the inside is vibrant, modern and serves great food. It's pretty good value based on other restaurants in Barbados.

Everyone should go here and have a Scarlet rocks cocktail! Delicious! This is a friendly buzzing restaurant with great atmosphere and good food. Good value for barbados as well! The steak is very good, best we have had on the island. All round good place to go.

IF you get to BARBADOS, Treat yourself to a great dining experience In an unforgettable atmosphere. SCARLETT serves outstanding food and original drinks in a scarlett room between a walls covered with Andy Warhol Images of Marilyn Monroe and Jackie Kennedy. The owner, Stephan Devereaux, and chef Cedric produce some of the best food anywhere. It was so good we... More

Dinner tonight at Scarlet. Great atmosphere. Really good cocktails. Food is very good , I had a great burger and calamari. Such a lively place and always full. Staff are really nice and helpful. Every time I'm in Barbados I visit Scarlets as it's a local institution. Very close to Sandy Lane and Holders Polo.

I know most restaurant reviews don't start with the dessert but that was the best part of my meal! The dessert special on the night we visited was warm, sugary donuts with two sauces for dipping - a caramel sauce and a lemon sauce. Both were delicious and I'm still dreaming about those donuts. Don't get me wrong - my... More

This is the 3rd time My husband and I have been here. Great atmosphere, fab cocktails and good menu whether you want a simple burger or a fillet steak, plenty of variety to be had. We stayed at the Tamarind and if you fancy a change of scenery without going too far Scarlets is perfect, it's literally opposite the hotel,... More

This was a repeat visit as we came last year. Scarlet is a fun place to eat, very buzzy and lively with a varied choice of food. Great cocktail list and can be recommended. If staying at Tamarind or The House it is literally opposite so well located.
