We had a delicious meal again here. Superb cocktails, we love the scarlet rocks cocktail. Wonderful fish pie, prawn curry, salmon skewers and chocolate soufflé to die for. Pleasant and attentive staff.

We dined here on a weekday. We came early enough (6:30pm) that they were able to seat my wife and I without prior reservations.

* The aesthetic of the restaurant was consistent with its neighborhood. It wasn't some gated fort like the Tides or a psuedo-white linen affair like Daphnes. The exterior is modest, while the interior is refreshingly spare and modern . . . bright solid red walls punctuated with Warhol prints. However, there are no windows, but by the same token, there wouldn't be any views anyway given it's location (not direct beachfront). There is a large bar area so it could potentially get noisy as the evening progresses. The overall vibe is "comfortable" dining. Be aware : it's an adult-only place after 7pm.

* Service was prompt, courteous and helpful . . . a five-star experience. Our waiter could actually explain the ingredients and preparation. Ditto for expounding on wine pairings.

* Prices are on the lower-end of high-end.

* The dish we most liked was the shrimp and coconut curry.

* There is parking in the back. If you are in the Paynes Bay area, walking may be a more convenient choice. Scarlet is located right on the main coastal highway so traffic can be heavy and fast.

Would definitely come back.

We dined here having had it recommended by several people at our hotel (Tamarind, which is opposite). It is dark inside and air conditioned, so not my choice when there are so many outside dining experiences. Maybe too trendy for us. Food was excellent though.

Don't be put off by the outside, once you open the door you'll be impressed. As other reviews have mentioned how unusual the restaurant is with no outside seating and no beach frontage.
The food is lovely and the staff friendly.

Our party of 4 had a excellent meal at this restaurant. Quite a different atmosphere to other restaurants, as they have no outside space they have done a very good job creating a great decor inside. The food was excellent, my favourite was the lamb shank, followed by a yummy lemon dessert.all this and great cocktails. The staff were also very friendly and helpful.
