Description: Chef Gerco and maitre d’ Luc opened up their own beautiful outdoor restaurant! It is called Barefoot Restaurant “Elegant dining in flipflops”. A name that reflects their idea for dining on Aruba, in the breeze on the sand, while enjoying great food, and friendly, yet professional service. Gerco and Luc met a few years ago and quickly became close friends through sharing the same passion for enjoyable outdoor dining.

When we were here in June we ate at Bearfoot for the first time. It was wonderful then and did not disappoint us. The food, service, and ambiance was first rate. Can't wait to go back

After a warm welcome from the staff, we were seated at the table on the beach with the feet in the sand, what a pleasant experience this was!

Great romantic dinner at Barefoot Restaurant. A little tricky to find but once there everything unfolded fine. The food was very good and the staff very courteous. The torches placed on the beach near the table and the small multi-colour led table top lamps enveloped everything in a romantic veil. Did I mention the stars above?

Dinning on their beach sand next to the bay was absolutely fantastic ! Their steak tips marinated with brown gravy, mushrooms and shallots melted in my mouth. The sunset was spectacular and watching the planes coming over the bay to land while sitting in the sand next to the water was over whelming. The people and ambiance of this wonderful... More

I'll preface this review by saying the food here was excellent. The restaurant was nice, service was OK...but.... I was hoping for the quiet romantic sunset dinner like the one we enjoyed at Passions last year. We knew after passing this place that there would be planes taking off and landing nearby but figured it wouldn't be that bad. In... More

Don't be put off by the outside of the building, it is a REAL jewel inside. Six of us had all outstanding meals, from the Greek Salad, Snapper, Steak Tips, to desert of Applestrudel. Outstanding service. All for a very good price. Yes, wear your flip flops, and have an outstanding experience.
