Lovely food, ambiance, good wine. What more can I say! We were staying at The House, right across the road from this lovely restaurant and the food was so good that we had to go back a second time! Thank you for a lovely experience x2.

Scarlet was located a couple of blocks from where we were staying (Beach View) and came highly recommend by the staff there. It is red inside and out with Andy Warhol prints on the wall, an interesting playlist and nicely air conditioned which made for a very pleasant environment.

Staff very pleasant and attentive. Menu choice good. We had prawn/chicken strips and delicious popcorn for starters followed by blackened catch of the day. Our daughter had the chicken. All delicious. Will definitely visit again

We visted Scarlets twice during our two week stay and would have gone more had we discovered it sooner. We visited a few of the more famous and expensive resturants on the west coast overlooking the sea and this was by far the best!

Scarlets is as its name says Red, Red outside and Red inside, from the outside it looks nothing special, but once inside you are transported to another world that truly is Scarlet and must be seen for yourself. The food is amazing as are the staff, but bee warned you must book as it extremely popular

Not the best dining experience of our holiday. Although food and service was good, it was nothing special. Personally didn't really like the set up but others in the party did.

Having been to the totally over rated and exorbitant Cin Cin the night before, this was a delightful evening. Bistro style with a very extensive cocktail list the wide variety of food was delicious. Nice service, no pretentious attitudes, we'll certainly return.

Thank Roy B
