About
Aruba is all about the fabulous beaches during the day, and the many great restaurants at night. It is only logical that these two unique things of Aruba are combined into one! Luc & Gerco found the perfect spot to synergize great food, and a beautiful setting to create an experience almost unique on our island. When listening to the ocean caressing the shore, while wiggling your toes through the pearly white sand, why not let yourself be pampered by a gourmet dinner? Chef Gerco & Maitre d' Luc had a shared dream of opening up a restaurant here, but wanted something in line with what they enjoy on Aruba: the nearly perfect climate, the possibility to always be outside, the tropical feel...

This place is all about you!!!! The best service on a beautiful beach. Food is great but I have to say the service is what I was most impressed with. Special dinner for a special Birthday. Reservations were made and the celebration was noted. They...brought out a birthday cake on a beautiful plate with a fire cracker candle. I loved it!!! The best ever!!!!More

We enjoyed our fresh fish dinners. Very comfortable, classy restaurant on the beach. Toes in the sand. Food and service was great.

A definite must do while in Aruba. The food in the atmosphere and staff were all top-notch. We would highly recommend making this a stop for dinner to watch the sunset.

This restaurant is unique. The central restaurant is a giant palapa, but most of the tables are on the beach. The owner personally visits all the tables. The food is very good. I wasn't happy with my wine selection, and the owner insisted on bringing...me his recommendation, which was gratis. The only reason for four stars instead of 5 is that I don't know that I tried the best meal on the menu. I had the grouper romano, which was very well prepared, but it turns out to be a bit of an odd combination. If I tried something else it probably would rate a five.More

This was the best meal we had in Aruba. Amazing food and vibe. A great place to go if you want a nice meal out with young kids, as they have a children’s menu. They were also very good about Covid protocols.

When you think dinner on the sand 15ft from the ocean you envision a nice quiet romantic sunset dinner. What you don't expect is a rundown building that you have to drive through a unpaved field, next to a bar playing incredibly loud music, the...airport around the corner with flights taking off and a lot of people in the water in front of you until after sunset. The service and the food were both outstanding, but that could not make up for the rest.More

So we had an amazing meal tonight but I can honestly say that the surroundings were less than pleasant. We sat on the beach and 15 ft from our table was a man eating a sandwich reading a book laying in the sand and there...were about 10 screaming local kids jumping off the dock and walking through the tables. We asked the host and he said it should get better after 7pm. We decided to stay and eat and our meal was amazing but the atmosphere was NOT!More

Almost all the tables are on the beach. When you get on island call the Barefoot. I’m sure they will accommodate you. I guarantee a visit to Barefoot will be a highlight to your trip

They were very catering to my two children (ages 7&9)! They do not have a children’s menu listed on the menu but have kids meals available. My kids had a children’s portion steak and they loved it. They also gave my children... More

I do not know you will need to contact the restaurant. I think you can for some reason I thought I recall someone doing that.
