Had breakfast at the park by the beach! I had a breakfast croissant sandwich and my husband had eggs, potatoes and bacon plus coffee. Breakfast was good! View was fabulous!

We went for dinner, there was a guitarist there singing for the crowd. The food was fresh and delicious, the atmosphere was relaxed. Would definitely recommend!

Barefoot Beach cafe is midway between Waikiki and Diamond Head set in the middle of the park. good all day, with great breakfasts and lunches. An easy walk from either and zero pretentions. friendly staff, walk up ordering. Sometimes live music too.

I tried the pina colada smoothie and it was awesome. I went back later and got the opah fish of the day plate. Fish and rice was very bland. Needed more seasonings and flavor!

Thanks for the review. It's sound like you ordered the Opah (one of my faves) grilled with garlic butter; may I suggest sauteed in our delicious lemon, butter, caper sauce? This is my preference as Opah is not the best grilled - Ahi and Salmon are the best grilled. We will be sure our staff makes this recommendation. Aloha....Kekoa Ornellas... More

Not only was the food amazing but the view matched it!! The food was reasonably priced for how delicious and widely varied the menu was, the location is just off the beach but still close enough to be able to people watch and of course catch a fab sunset. Just be aware of the birds that tend to visit"/

Thanks for the visit and the review; happy you enjoyed yourself. We are constantly doing our best to keep the birds away - pesky buggers - but we are in the park so the best thing to do is not to leave plates unattended. Thanks for the tip!

There are not enough words in my vocabulary to describe how unbelievably awesome this place is. To start, it's very small and sort of out of the way, but right on the beach. So you get that cozy cafe ambiance with the ocean right in front of you. The menu is generally your typical breakfast items with some Hawaiian flare... More

Ate a light meal here after a day long flight to Oahu: Hawaiian chicken and Kahlua pork sandwiches - fresh, tasty and just right. Location on the beach provides excellent views. Also ate breakfast on our last day - although the sign says they open at 7 a.m., it wasn't until 8:15 before they opened. We didn't mind - we... More

This is a great place to unwind and watch the sunset. Great selection of snacks and fruit shakes (Try the mangolada!) if you fancy a bite. You can also sit down and order the buffet--a selection of salads with fresh fish or meat grilled to your liking--while you listen to the live music performed by local musicians.

Once again I was surprised by a little beachside cafe. The food here was great!!! We both had the Hawaian BBQ Chicken. I think we could have ordered just one meal and been fine. The chicken was tender and full of flavor. The pineapple salsa was one of the best I have ever tasted. And the view was priceless. Sitting... More

This place has a great location right on the beach but without the usual Waikiki inflated prices. Good aki poke or Kailua pork sandwiches as well as fresh fish. Reasonable prices and fast service.
