Just visited some friends that built a home in Hopkins. The drive to Placencia was worth it to eat at this place! There was as much lobster on the grilled cheese sandwich as there was cheese...maybe more! That and a cold Belikin is all you need!

We found this place our first day trip away from the home we were staying in. Their drinks are delicious and you have GOT to try the lobster grilled cheese and the lobster nachos - they are to die for! It's a beautiful stop to go relax and hang out!

Listen, the food is not great, but after a few fantastic drinks here, and some music (live or great overhead speaker), you don't care. The food is good, especially for the price, but the atmosphere is great--the people are great--the beach view is great. It's a must see.

Love this place and highly recommend it to all in the placencia area. The ambience is so chill I never wanted to leave and this is coming from someone who is staying at the turtle inn (a 5 star resort). It has a carribean vibe to it. Reggae playing in the background, beach front (better beach than the one on... More

The Barefoot Bar is the only bar I actually took off my sandles and enjoyed the sand between my toes as I casually walked the beach to the Barefoot Bar. Great cocktails and food! The winds from the water are so relaxing. A must to enjoy while in Belize!!

I can understand why Barefoot Bar thought it would be smart to move from its old location on the main road to the beachfront. (And maybe it had no choice due to a lease or something.) It seemed to make sense, but in fact I liked the old location better. It was handier to pop in for a cold Belikin... More

Not knowing that the Lobster Grilled Cheese Sandwich had been reviewed so positively, I ordered it because it was on the lunch special. Together with Belikin Beer and some Marie Sharp's Hot Sauce it turned out to be a great meal. Lots of lobster and not so much cheese is perfect to preserve the lobster taste as the main ingredient.... More

Great bar food right on the beach in the center of Placencia Village. They have tabes on the beach or "inside" the restaurant. It is a very colorful place, great decorations, awesome drinks and great bar food with specials every day. On Sundays they have a BZ$12.00 special of bar-b -que chicken or pork and it come with all the... More
