They have some very nice stuff. It's not cheap, but it is very good quality. So I suppose you get what you paid for.

I really enjoy coming here but most things are very expensive. There are some smaller items you can get good deals on but I love their vibrant colors.

We were told by the staff in our hotel that this was similar to a mall. Not really. They had lots of different things, but I'd say it was not what we were asking for. One big shop in three floors with everything from soap to jewellery. We bought some gifts to bring home.

Loved the feel of the place, the range, the variety of products, from beautiful textiles to cinnamon wood bowls to gorgeous Ceylon Spa goodies. I especially loved the use of traditional batik techniques in almost Scandinavian style floor cushions. Simply beautiful shop and experience. I note other reviewers comments re prices and it's a fair comment but then one always... More

This is an OK place to get some colourful souveniers at a bit too High price. Definately you should go there and maybe chill a bit in the courtyard with a good cup of tea. We found some Nice shirts for the boy, but we also payed a good price, compared for instance to the High end local brands in... More

Barefoot has reasonably priced, good quality products in a relaxed a easy to navigate setting. There was plenty of choice and a lot of responsibly sourced items. The cafe at the back looked fun. I'd say the best place to buy souvenirs and gifts on Colombo.

Good service at the cafe with nice quality beverages and not too expensive for a tourist hot spot. The shop was very cute, surprisingly large and had some great books and unusual souvenirs. Some things were a tad overpriced but that's to be expected in a shop like this. It is very much catered to western tourists so if you... More

Cute store to go in and look around but everything seems to be marked up for tourists. I was hoping to stumble upon a more local shopping experience rather than this store.
