The food was absolutely delicious and the service was delightful and on point. I went with a group of 13 ppl and it didn't matter what you ordered, everything was done to perfection.

This is a restaurant that you want to go to in order to watch the sunset. The wait staff will stop what they are doing in order to take you picture in the sunset. The tables are in the sand and the service is unmatched anywhere in Aruba. This restaurant is not to be missed if you go to Aruba.

We were SO lucky to get a table on the sand and watch the sunset. Food was pretty good. Only downside was my martini, I don't think they put any gin in it, somewhat of a disappointment. Great restaurant...near the airport...just an overall happy night on a happy Island.

Beautiful setting, good service and quality food. This is the second time we have been to the restaurant. The first time, last May, was a better meal. I would have rated the food 4.5 this time, but I will give them the benefit of high tourist season. The escargot stuffed mushrooms are amazing! Definitely a great restaurant to splurge on.

Great place for fine dining and watching the sunset drop into the sea and a beautiful photo opt. The food experience was the best ever. We have been eating at Barefoot since they opened and every savory dish is a delight. Our family of 20 has always enjoyed spending a pleasurable evening at Barefoot. Thanks, Nickie and staff for a...

Barefoot is located on the beach - so the sunset views are awesome. I loved the way our waitress immediately ran over when we started taking pictures and offered to take the pictures of our family. My daughter is vegan and the chef made a fantastic stuffed pepper for her - it was the best meal she had on the... More

Everything was perfect. The setting , the staff, the food, the presentation! We went for my husband's birthday dinner. They brought him a snickers cream cheese cake with happy birthday written in chocolate on the plate with a sparkler attached and Sang happy birthday to him! Special! And the desert was out of the world good! Worth a visit!!!

Can't give it 4.5 stars which it rightfully deserves. The only drawback we have found that there were bugs on the beach. But with a little application of Off! that problem went away and haven't had any effect on out dining experience. The food was amazing and presentation over the top! The setting on the beach adds to the experience... More

We had dinner at Barefoot. During the day we were rearranging our dinner plans with the guidance of the concierge at the Ritz Carlton. They kept saying that this restaurant is a "don't miss." They were correct. Absolutely lovely and wonderful ambiance. The view was spectacular, dinner delicious and servers very attentive. It's truly a "don't miss" for anyone visiting... More

Aruba is all about the fabulous beaches during the day, and the many great restaurants at night. It is only logical that these two unique things of Aruba are combined into one! Luc & Gerco found the perfect spot to synergize great food, and a beautiful setting to create an experience almost unique on our island. When listening to the ocean caressing the shore, while wiggling your toes through the pearly white sand, why not let yourself be pampered by a gourmet dinner? Chef Gerco & Maitre d' Luc had a shared dream of opening up a restaurant here, but wanted something in line with what they enjoy on Aruba: the nearly perfect climate, the possibility to always be outside, the tropical feel... When opening their restaurant, they had these ideas in their heads, and it worked like a charm! Tables under a large palapa on a wooden deck with a view of the ocean, or outside under the Aruban nights sky, on the pristine beach... An original menu was created by Gerco and Justin, with some of the old school favorites (sirloin with bearnaise, or tuna steak with teriyaki) as well as some original dishes not found anywhere, with unique combinations (smoked salmon & shrimp, grouper & mango or leg & rack of lamb) and wonderful vegetarian dishes. With the help of the local wine suppliers, Luc made an extensive wine list, with wines from all over the world, and is always ready to pair a wine with your dinner. The experienced service team is friendly yet professional, ready to wow you from the moment you walk in, to make a fabulous evening into a great memory on Aruba!
