“Good grub and tasty drinks!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013

We had stayed at Hatchet Caye Resort and we ended our 7 day vacation to Belize at Barefoot Bar in Placencia. We heard that Barefoot was "the place" to be (especially at night), however we only had a few hours to spare in the afternoon before our flight back to the big city. The bar itself is funky and fun. The bright colors of the walls, chairs and everything inbetween makes for a cool, fun vibe! Their menu is HUUUUUGE, for both booze and food. Both the drinks and the food were absolutely delicious. I started off with a Watermelon something (forget the exact name) which was made with an array of FRESH watermelon and fruit juices and local rum $3USD and it wasn't a teeny glass either. Supplemented with honey mustard chicken tacos (3 to a plate) the combination was heavenly. I finished off with their red wine sangria, and would have had 10 more but their "sangria lady" had the day off and we drank the last two glasses worth. When I asked for another there was only enough to fill the glass 3/4 full so the owner said it was on the house - SWEET! Between me and my BF we had 2 drinks each, a plateful of food and spent about $25USD. I'm looking forward to our next visit to Placencia to stop by and check out Barefoot's nightlife, dancing and live thumping music!

Awesome little stop midway up the main road. Very lively and the drink menu was awesome:) I recommend trying the fried plantains with the Marie Sharps...yummy!

“Sport bar is not for everyone”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

On our second night in Placencia village, we were looking for a place to eat and relax, we soon decided to pass Barefoot because the music was way too loud. A few days later, we decided to have cold drinks after long walk on beach so we stopped at Barefoot. The service was good but nothing was extraordinary. Our last night, we decided to checki it out again; again the music was pounding and bar was very busy and loud. Barefoot will be good place if you are looking for party, it won't be right for you if you want a quite and relaxing evening.

“Best food in Placencia”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013

We had a group of over 10 people, and not one person DIDN'T love their meal. Best drinks and food in Placencia that we found. We ended up eating here 3 times in 10 days, I think!

“Great Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013

This restaurant has really good food and a huge drink list. It IS the local watering hole for Placencia. Because so many people go there, it can get crowded which makes for slow service (we waited at least an hour for our food). Best to arrive early (at or before 6pm).
