We enjoyed eating at Barefoot while on our honeymoon. The atmosphere was great as we were able to sit on the beach with the cabana lights in the background.

Four of us had dinner at Barefoot last week. It was excellent! Our food, wine, service and atmosphere were all very good! Our waitress, Carla, was fun and professional. We had a reservation and the table was ready when we arrived. Highly recommend.

One of the best meals I’ve ever had. We couldn’t get a reservation until 8:30pm but so worth it, even without the sunset. Everything was excellent!!

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
