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.

We originally had reserved a table on the beach, but it was so windy and cool, our hostess suggested a table under roof. It still had a view of the sunset and was like eating outdoors, but the wind was abated. We truly appreciated her suggestion. The food was good, nothing extravagant on the menu. Service was excellent. Dessert is... More

Faces west on the beach - Sunset amazing. Food was great; service reasonable. Make your reservation for at least 1/2 hour before sunset and get there early. Tables on the beach fill up quickly. reservations a must - when we left there was a long line waiting to enter.

Barefoot is a great restaurant for those interested in fine dinning on the beach. Service was excellent. The food was great. I would highly recommend this restaurant for those seeking a romantic beach side diner. We went midweek and the place was packed which is definitely unusual for Aruba weekdays. I would definitely recommend making a reservation if you can.... More

We had a nice meal, but food quality should have been outstanding, and was just ok. My husband had a fish special and it was great. I had a shrimp and scallop meal that was a 3/5. My daughter's chicken dinner that came in a hollowed out pineapple was sooo sweet 2/5. The setting and staff were outstanding though, so... More

Our table was waiting for us outside on the beach. As soon as we sat down a plane came in for a landing it was loud but not too annoying. I ordered the King Mojito it was pretty good but it was loaded with mint leaves, limes and ice. The Shrimp croquettes were tasty, sort of a creamy centered, oval... More

Wow great atmosphere. You can dine in or out. In is a wooden structure looking like a Native American Tee-Pee that's oversized with both wood/sand floor depending on seating. Located at the Rotary coming out of the airport they have a number of outside seating facing the water with wonderful small lights for a romantic look while dining. This was... More

I am compelled to write a review to share our experience in this fine establishment. We chose Barefoot to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary after scouring reviews of all the restaurants in Aruba. We were so glad we did! Our reservation was for 6:30 so we could enjoy the sunset. We got there a few minutes early and were seated... More
