My wife and I have eaten at Scarlet many times and we now find ourselves always seeming to order the same thing (because it is so good!). My wife - the special hamburger and me - the Baxter Road Chicken. Both are great. Scarlet also has a number of very good appetizers - we like so many of them. Strongly... More

Excellent cocktails and hors d'oeuvres. Décor is bright, cheery and comfortable. Good selection of main courses which were well prepared and good portions.

Visited this restaurant on the last night of our holiday and were really impressed with the food and service. From the outside Scarlet looks really small and unassuming, once you walk inside there is a bar and restaurant area with funky decor. We ordered the sesame prawn toast and the poppadom 'nibbles' with curry sauce to start which were quick... More

Don't usually post reviews, however feel I need to with this place. We stayed in Barbados for 10 nights and ate at all the usual places - Cliff, Tides etc as we have been several times to the island and ran out of places to eat. Someone recommended Scarlet as a change - good advice! Service was brilliant, very personal.... More

Second visit to Scarlett's and have to say the venue itself is really great but value wise expensive for what you get. Food was ok but prices high!

Located right on H1 -- it's easy to miss. Ate here twice and it was delicious. I had the Thai Beef Noodle Salad which was light and delicious. It's not really a salad.... Slices of beef with rice noodles in an Asian marinade with slivers of cucumber. The 2nd visit I had Baxter's Famous Chicken which was very tasty (expect... More

The service was great! Our issues stem from the cost versus portion and quality. We expected more from a place so highly rated.

We ate here twice on our recent trip to the island, and as usual the food was excellent. The menu offers a good selection of food, but we love the starters, and always order 3 between us..as we're greedy! Mains are good as well, I personally love their burger, but the Mahi Mahi I had this time was amazing. The... More
