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!

“Best restauraunt for sunset dining and food!”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

Barefoot is my favourite restaurant on aruba for 3 reasons, The food is excellent, the service is outstanding and there is no better location on the island to watch the sunset while having dinner! This restaurant is a true gem! I have been to the restaurant ever since it has opened and the food and service has been consistently excellent!

“great view in modern beachfront setting...”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

our 3rd visit to Barefoot did not disappoint. We had a great dinner with our kids on the beach. Wonderful view of the sunset, we even got to see many airplanes head for landing, which distracted my children and kept them entertained. Definitely a must on our trips.

“number 1”
Reviewed July 27, 2013

Once again, a lovely meal at Barefoot. We've been going to Barefoot since it opened and for us it is still our number 1 restaurant in Aruba. It was good talking with you last night, Luc.

“Good food but service was lacking”
Reviewed July 24, 2013

We had a sunset dinner at Barefoot. The food was very good but definitely could use better service as it seemed they were understaffed. Long delays waiting for drinks and main course. Wine list was OK but seemed overpriced for the quality.
