“We dined at Scarlett Restaurant for 1 dinner and 3 breakfasts and found the quality of the food to be very good. The barramundi that we ordered for dinner was cooked to perfection and was a real highlight of our stay. The breakfasts were nice and fresh and they were very happy to accommodate our dietary requirements.” –Tripadvisor

Start drooling before you even start eating when you read menu items like salted caramel, caramelized sugar, and chestnut cream.
