We had decided to treat ourselves to dinner at the Scarlet during our recent holiday in Cornwall and we were so glad that we did. What a beautiful evening we had in this stunning restaurant looking out over the bay as the sun set. The menu was fabulous making it quite difficult to narrow it down to one choice from... More

Isn't lunch on the terrace, soaking up the sun and watching the waves, just the perfect afternoon?! Thank you ever so much for taking the time to share your experience here. Hopefully we'll see you again soon (maybe for dinner on the terrace as the sun sets!) More

Valet parking on our arrival set the scene, an extremely friendly greeting and surroundings and views to die for. The service was impeccable and the meal was excellent, but the view from the restaurant was amazing and just the place to share a glass of champagne to toast our daughters excellent results on her degree. A superb location with top... More

Like another reviewer, we were a bit confused by a large sign at the entrance that suggested someone would park our car. We hung about for a bit, and a person who looked like a member of staff smiled fulsomely at us for a bit, but made no attempt to park us, but he did gesture helpfully to the double... More

We really appreciate you taking the time to write such a detailed review, and it's great to hear that you had a great time with us and found the food superb. As a fellow veggie I also often find that options when I go out can sometimes be a little lacking in imagination, so it's really refreshing how Tom and... More

The sign We know you are here gave us the feeling, that someone would come, park our car,and show us to the table, as the sign suggested. After few minutes of waiting,... More

We enjoyed a lovely lunch on Saturday for my birthday, the food was well cooked and extremely tasty. The bread that was served with lunch was yummy too and had some lovely flavours. The chef added a nice touch with "Happy Birthday" in chocolate written on my sweet plate. As the weather was so good we were able to have... More

A truly wonderful evening. the Scarlet is a beautifully designed hotel - stunning interiors and art - combined with sophisticated colour palette and sumptuous fabrics. Food at the restaurant was stunning and the wine to accompany each course was fantastic. Made extra special by sharing with friends. Go and enjoy!
