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.

The food was great. You can sit right on the beach with your toes in the sand. It was amazing. That being said, you are sitting on the airport landing strip. It was good, but there are more amazing places to see the sun set in Aruba!

Staff attentive and knowledgable about the menu. We were presented with a glass of sparkling wine to celebrate our wedding anniversary which was greatly appreciated. Set menu good... More

We went to Barefoot to celebrate my husband's birthday. It was the perfect choice. The waitstaff was very courteous and attentive, and the location was perfect. We arrived just in time to see the sun set, and the staff took multiple pictures for us. We have a 16-month-old son, and he was made very welcome. He ate most of his... More

We had read some good reviews of this place and weren't let down at all. From the friendly staff to the amazing food this place was great. You are sitting near the oceans edge and the atmosphere lends to a great experience. Planes can be heard taking off near by and that may put off some but not us. You... More

Seating with your feet in the sand, watching a great sunset and drinking a cold Chardonnay was the beggining of our best meal during our stay in Aruba. Scallops, gruupers, escargots and lobster soup , all great.

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! I'll recommend everyone to book in advance to get a table around 6pm/6:30pm. A beautiful sunset will decorade the view just in front of you, while you sipping away your aperitive! I... More
