We booked at Scarlet's as it was a convenient walk from our hotel. We booked despite varied reviews on Tripadvisor. The restaurant is relatively small, and has no windows, so it's very dark inside. As our booking was made late, we were seated at the bar to dine. This in itself was not an issue, although we would have preferred... More

This place has been on my Barbados 'to do' list for some time, having used an article on the owner, Stephane Domenge, as a case study for my journalism course (I'm hoping to write a spin off article in the future). I was not disappointed. From the outside it is very understated, other than the bright red paint used on... More

Reading the views of others Scarletts seem to achieve a very mixed reaction. Unfortunately we ended up in the disappointed camp. Setting was fun, staff attentive and friendly- but the food was uninspired. A pity, but we will not be back. Too many other excellent places, at better prices.

A wonderful dinner , can thoroughly recommend their cheese soufflé entree delicious and a cheeky Chenin Blanc from Stellenbosh, made for a perfect evening! Can't recommend highly enough.

this place was just up the road from our hotel at Treasure Beach. It doesn't look much from the outside, but inside it is pretty stunning. red walls with funky prints and great lighting. cocktails were ok. food was pretty good. not cheap, but where is on the west coast! would definitely go back, and recommend to friends

We've always returned to Scarlet's each time we are in Barbados but usually just for cocktails. These are great and served by friendly, helpful barmen. Our mistake was to stay to eat this time. Food is casual dining which is great if done well. But this wasn't. When we mentioned the problem with a dish to our waiter, the situation... More

Eat. Drink. Play is what their cards say so we did that 😉. We got there quite early so the place was empty but it gave us opportunity to have a better look at the venue. Interesting is that it had no windows but instead pictures of Marilyn Monroe and Jackie Kennedy and painted red. Our waitress was lovely, smiling... More

We had never been to Scarlet before even though we had visited the island many times and I must say what a pleasant surprise. We stated with Prawn crackers and a sweet chili dip? I had the chicken skewers with a peanut butter dip followed by the burger, I know not very adventurous but very tasty. My wife had the... More

We were told about this venue by a relative so we booked our reservation prior to venturing. The appetizers were not good at all; truffle popcorn was burnt, the strawberry daiquiris were tasteless and the main meals w the exception of the burger were not worthy of the descriptions or the price point. Also when you order water for the... More

This is a really great find in Paynes Bay. They were very busy but had lots of staff to cope and we were very well looked after. Recommend you book although we got lucky and walked in on our first night in Paynes Bay. The lamb shank and steak were tasty choices and we had one vegetarian who liked their... More
