We went there on recommendation from owners of Capt'n Jak Cabanas just for a happy hour drink. Before you know it we were having a GREAT time with the bartenders Christi and the bartender with the spiky hair (hard to pronounce his name). One happy hour drink turned into a couple more drinks, fresh... read more

We found my ourselves eating and drinking at Barefoot Bar three times in a week vacation. Everything was wonderful that we tried. The bartenders were so friendly and welcoming; they remembered us after one visit. The food was so tasty and the drinks we so strong. And best of all everything was priced great. My favorite bar in Placencia!

A relaxing place to sit and watch the surf. The food is only average but the staff is very friendly. Worth a visit but not a return visit.

Kept ending up back at this bar! It always had something going on and a huge crowd of people (but not in a bad way as the lines were never bad even though there were tons of people) On Fridays they have Bittaz for $1… I recommend these as they are said to be good for the blood by the... More

I guess going out on a monday night doesnt really count. Went to Barefoot while on a short biz trip to Belize. That night was slow ans atmosphere was not as advertised. Next time i will make sure i visit on Friday night. Maybe the mood is different

This place is super fun and they have a great menu for such a small fishing village. It is better than their rival Tipsy Tuna which is right next door. The wait staff is a little more fun and we saw a bunch of people there that we'd met during our stay. I highly recommend the Barefoot Bar. Live music... More

This place has great eats along with a variety of drinks. The music is varied and makes you want to dance. Met some of the locales; the staff were attentive to all the customers. I had chicken salbutes for lunch and the presentation was well-done and the taste so good I forgot to take a picture.
