Went with 3 friends! Service was excellent. We all had something different and loved their choices. One had the tuna carpaccio and tuna tartar that I tried ( first time tasting it). It was awesome!! Great views!

Restaurant is located right near airport, so about 15-20 minute cab ride from most hotels. As the name of the place implies, you can either sit right on the beach or in an open air dining area. When we arrived, no one came to our...More

The subject explains how awesome the food is. The waiter took pictures of my wife and me at sunset with the sea in the background. It's a little pricy but well worth the experience.

This was our first visit to Barefoot but it certainly won't be our last! Great atmosphere, food, and service make for a perfect sunset dining experience. Fantastic wine list and spectacular view of the sunset make it memorable. We'll be back!

My husband and I will be coming there with another couple for the week of May 20-27th. We are celebrating my husband 60th birthday and this looks like a great place for dinner. We are coming from Chicago IL area. Do we need to make a reservation ahead of time and is calling the only way to book a table?

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 team, with some of the old school favorites as well as locally influenced 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!
