Fun to people watch and good food too

It's exactly as expected. One tip: if you are hungry and would prefer to eat sooner, order the lunch special. It seemed to come out significantly before other ordered meals. The live music at nights are a bonus yoo

Fantastic spot right on the beach in the middle of Placencia village. Fun atmosphere, great staff, superb drinks and good food. There really is nothing to dislike about Barefoot Bar. If you are in Placencia and you do not go you have missed out.

Ok, where to start? Food was great! We are here twice actually. One afternoon we stopped here to have lunch and a few drinks. They did not disappoint! Drinks were fresh and the specials on the chalkboard are your best bet since they're usually only $6BZD. We had the Sunday lunch special and that was also amazing and a nice... More

We were at Barefoot Sunday before the super bowl. It was busy with live music, tourists and locals. The barbecue chicken and lobster were good, the service was attentive and took care of us a needed. Overall we like the place and it is consistent and a fun beach bar each time we visit.

We grabbed a hi-top table on the beach for lunch. The service was fast and friendly. The food servings were HUGE and quite good. I had the steak quesadilla and while it was only steak and cheese on a home-made tortilla, it was delicious!. The rest of the table were also quite happy with their dishes. Sitting right on the...

We tried to deescalate and he just kept getting more and more amped up. "I'm a local, you need to respect me"...no disrespect young man, we were very polite. I shook your hand... More

After having looked into this further we have had several eyewitness accounts this took place at the neighboring establishment, not in fact at Barefoot Bar. The fact that... More

Locals make you feel like your not welcome. Manager or owner (not sure what she was) needs to get rid of her boyfriend there, he can't handle his alcohol. Intimidates people with his buddies and pushes for a fight, even with the ladies.

This beachside restaurant Serves up fun and good food at reasonable prices. We visited on a Sunday afternoon when there was music and a bar b que choice of lobster, pork or chicken. The drink menu is extensive and creative. Service was efficient and friendly.
