With a couple of the dining options in Horseshoe Bay closed we were pleased to find "Barefoot" was open; it looked nice - the place is full of original artwork and attractively decorated - and we were warmly welcomed. We took a table on the first floor terrace. We chose two pasta dishes; mine a spaghetti bolognese , Mrs H... More

Visited on Valentine's Day night and were surprised to find a number of other venues in the area were closed. It was a lovely humble setting with fantastic food! The specials were great and the free glass of bubbly was a nice touch. The service was also genuinely friendly and overall we thoroughly enjoyed the evening.

The meal here was delicious, well presented and one of the best on the island. A beautiful bottle of wine was paired with our pumpkin Ravioli and three cheese sauce. We even had the chocolate cake for dessert! Highly recommend this restaurant for a treat night.

The view over the beach at sunset was a very nice compliment to the wine. The steak was well cooked, the garlic butter sauce was beautifully rich and seafood was really fresh.

Second time here. Still great risotto. Still gluten free. Still great service. One of the few nice places on the island to eat... especially for coeliacs.
