Description: 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!

This is definitely one of my favorite restaurants in Aruba. The service is always great, very friendly servers always offering to take great Sunset Photos.

Very good cocktails, I tried the Mojito Royal nice fizz with the champagne, good twist on a classic.

Grouper was amazing as always!! Crab cakes and shrimp croquettes were very good.

Well worth a visit

I had spent the 5 days prior on a cruise and while it was wonderful, once I got to Barefoot I finally felt like I was in paradise. Food, Service, Atmosphere, and the sand... like fluffy clouds of happiness, all amazing. This isn't on the "should" list, it is on the "MUST" list. If you want a taste of paradise go here.

We were told Barefoot was an exceptional restaurant and although it is feed in sand on the beach you have people five feet in front of you laying on the beach talking. You got kids playing in the sand and screaming. You have a beach bar playing loud music right next door and you have the airport nearby with airplanes coming back and forth and you can see the parking lot.
So what's the nice dinner yes was having the feet in the sand nice yes good service yes but just a big let-down compared to what it sound like it is not a romantic be alone dinner it's kind of romantic Inn kind of hectic pretty place.

Our favorite dining experience on Aruba! The settling is wonderful and the food was exceptional. Everyone liked their food and there is a menu with something for everyone. The service was great; attentive, but not rushing. Overall a great experience.
