A nice vibe, good food and relaxed atmosphere. It's not on the beach, in fact there are no windows and small children aren't allowed after 7pm. It an adults bar/restaurant with consistently good food and drinks. A refreshing menu with variety of meat and non meat options. Arancini for starters... read more

We have been to Scarlet a number of times and the food is always excellent! Tonight was no different. We got take out and brought it back to our apartment - the entire menu is available for take out, specials included! A great option and the chicken curry was wonderful.

You wouldn't think this is one the best restaurants on the island from the outside but it's delicious! Local produce, very slick interiors and almost a jazz bar feel to it! Food is perfectly cook and service super speedy. Elegant and chic!

Scarlet is a great place for hanging with friends or having a dinner with that special someone. The vibrant red decor is warm and inviting to all and just automatically relaxes you as soon as you enter. The staff are polite and attentive as well as helpful if you have any questions about the menu. The cocktails are well presented... More

I thought this restaurant was derelict! When you walk past in the day time there's no obvious front door, the trees in front are dead and the fence is slight decrepit but at night it's a very cool restaurant/bar decorated with Andy Warhol prints and dimly lit. Great menu with a good range of food and the most extensive cocktail... More

We have been to Scarlets many times and always have a wonderful evening. The food is always delicious and the staff are well informed regarding the menu. If you have special dietary requirements they will be able to accommodate with original and tasty options. The cocktails are amazing. Would recommend a visit at least once whilst on holiday.

scarlet is a great option if you want a break from the hotel/resort dining options. Cocktails are unique and creative; watching the bartenders mix them is half the fun! We had grilled mahi mahi and fried chicken, along with an assortment of cocktails including Bajan Iced Tea, Apple Daquiri, Coconut Mojito, Grande Martini, Creme Brule Martini, and Coconut Cream Pie...

We've been to Scarlet a number of times over various trips to Barbados, and visited twice during our recent two week stay, and enjoyed both meals. Scarlet is a pretty cool cocktail bar restaurant in St James located in a chattel house...painted scarlet. The menu has a good selection of smaller plates (starters) with a bit of an Asian flavour,... More

We initially went to have a few drinks but it wasn't quite what we had in mind. It was really packed for a Wednesday night. For a small place and to be highly packed with so many people, one couldn't have a nice conversation. The drinks were also overpriced. The decor is amazingggggg and very trendy but with the atmosphere... More
