We just felt like having a meal where we did not have to dress-up, we could relax and enjoy ourselves amoungest laughter, friendly people of all ages. So where did we go "Barefoot Cafe" where else. It is such a fun place for young and old and the food is good. You can even have locally made beer, beware of... More

Walked from Cypraea Sands along beach to Cintsa for lunch. Service was quick and the waiter very charming. The menu is large and food is excellent. It is a very relaxing atmosphere

Ate here several times while staying in Cintsa. Food excellent, great prices and large servings. Ryan, our waiter kept us in stitches and Marcel the owner provided the main source of our entertainment. Wish we could have stayed longer in Cintsa just to enjoy our meals at this great place. See you guys next year!!

This was the most amazing experience. There were a dutch couple looking to surf, an Irish family out for lunch, a school teacher preparing some work, a local girl doing her homework and some load Australians a little latter who were on a volunteer program! Everyone having fun and eating - the food is the best part after the atmosphere.... More

Such a lovely little hub of Chintsa. This restaurant is situated in the small village center of Chintsa, so you will see traffic and people all around. I tend to always go to watch a football game on a Saturday afternoon, although most of the patrons are not football fans, they do allow me to view a game and have... More

I went to barefoot cafe with my family. The atmosphere was complemented by the excellent service. It took about an hour to receive our food but it was worth the wait. I had the jalapeño burger and it was fantastic. We also had the calamari special, fish and chips, chicken and mayo, pizza and the lamb burger. Not a single... More

Great place to visit in Chintsa, very relaxed and easy going. The staff is amazing, and very accommodating. A perfect place to grab a snack after the beach.

A warm, laid back, inviting place to go for a great evening, informale dress, no fancy dress-ups, so we could just relax and enjoy ourselves. Staff very pleasant and the food is great and reasonable priced. On the whole Barefoot Cafe is the place to go.

We visited Barefoot Cafe for lunch two days running it was so good. It had a nice relaxed feel but with good, friendly service. The burgers were homemade and really tasty as was the hake and chips. There is also a wide selection of beer including those from the local brewery.
