It was 12 degrees and pourring down the night we had dinner at Barefoot and we were totally frozen. We asked if we could eat inside - the tall man (the owner?) who showed us to our table shrugged and looked at us as if we were total idiots (major pains in the neck?). Throughout the diner he kept his... More

Had fish and chips and a fish platter here. The small platter is perfect for one person. Absolutely beautiful food and great service.

The food was just ok but definitely overpriced. The service though was dreadful, the young girl that served us so awkward and rude, it made us feel very uncomfortable and unwelcome. When we got there we stood around in the lobby waiting to be noticed, no body there to greet us, the staff just standing about or nowhere to be... More

We were recommended by a friend to visit this restaurant. When we walked in its a very relaxed environment, the host not a friendly as would of hoped. We were charged twice for desert and was a hassle when we questioned. Although not the greatest experience I couldn't complain about the food, it was delicious!

My wife and I dropped in to Barefoot to check out the art and grab a bite of lunch. We sat on the first floor balcony overlooking with tree and Palm filtered views of the beautiful bay. The food and the service were both very good. We had lunch at a couple of other places in Horseshoe during our stay... More

Stopped here on our first night on Magnetic Island. Didnt realise most of the restaurants shut at 8, but these were still open, the staff were great and the food was fantastic. Just had the light seafood pasta, but it was perfect for what we wanted and full of flavour.

Our group walked down fro Billabong Village and had a fantastic dinner at the Barefoot Art Cafe. The service was very good and the food very very good. I would highly recommend this on your visit to the area. Shared another seafood platter there and it was one of the best I've ever had.
