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! As some one else said dont be put off by the outside, traditional Bajan exterior with... More

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.

Went with a friend who lives on the island at her recommendation. My mahe mahe fish main was just lovely. Hot smoked salmon starter good too. We were delighted to see NZ Hunter Sauvignon Blanc on the menu - we loved that in NZ and hadn't seen it anywhere else since

Don't be deceived by the outside of this restaurant. It doesn't look anything special but inside is quirky and modern and we visited three times during our stay at the nearby Beach View. The food was superb. My steaks were definitely the best in Barbados and although on the first evening my husband's lamb shank slow cooked in Guinness was... More

We were slightly apprehensive when entering Scarlets due to the exterior, but when we opened the door we very pleased to find a very modern/chic restaurant. The food was amazing and the staff where brilliant. Highly recommended.

Don't judge this restaurant from the outside ! When you push through the doors you're meet with a sea of Scarlet (of course ) and huge graphic art pictures of femaile icon film stars. The service was great, the cocktails were served just to our taste and the food was nothing short of delicious. A recommendation would be the mini... More
