Description: 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... When opening their restaurant, they had these ideas in their heads, and it worked like a charm! Tables under a large palapa on a wooden deck with a view of the ocean, or outside under the Aruban nights sky, on the pristine beach... An original menu was created by Gerco and team, with some of the old school favorites as well as locally influenced dishes. With the help of the local wine suppliers, Luc made an extensive wine list, with wines from all over the world, and is always ready to pair a wine with your dinner. The experienced service team is friendly yet professional, ready to wow you from the moment you walk in, to make a fabulous evening into a great memory on Aruba!

A few months ago we visited Aruba for the sixth time.
Again we were surprised at Barefoot, very nice evening with great food and delicious wines.
Everyone should try this amazing restaurant near the beach just outside Oranjestad heading the airport.
Just follow the signs at the first roundabout, or simply ask your taxidriver.
Enjoy a great ambiance, very friendly staff and great food.

We went here for our 28th Wedding Anniversary dinner and all the staff knew because we requested a table on the beach for sunset and told them in our reservation request that it was for our anniversary. Several waitresses and staff stopped to wish us "Happy Anniversary". Everyone was very nice and attentive and the food was wonderful!! They brought us a complimentary dessert to share with a sparkling candle on top--very nice touch.

We went to Barefoot last night and had two tunas for an appetizer and it was excellent! I had the Caribbean Grouper and my husband had a steak. They were both extremely good! Would recommend this place to anyone!

This is the place for one of the best meals in Aruba, plus you are right on the beach coral sands. Everyone on the staff was attentive to our needs, the food was incredible with a fair price.
