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!

I really should have risked the ridicule from my friends and taken some pictures of the food at Barefoot... but it still wouldn't have done the meal justice. We had dinner there one night, and the choices were creative, plentiful, and extremely fresh and carefully prepared. This restaurant is well worth the steeper price tag!

Out of our 7 nights out in Aruba, Barefoot was the best by far. Everything was excellent: view, service, food, and value. The Lobster Bisque Cappuccino was absolutely brilliant...better than any I have had in New England.

We absolutely loved this restaurant ! We liked the Elegant casualness of the restaurant. The service is very good, our dinners were one of the best we've had on the island. I had the Seafood Trio and my husband had the Duet of Lamb and both of us were very satisfied. We had the most amazing sunset right in front of us that I have ever seen. I cannot wait to go back again.

Perfect food, perfect atmosphere, great hospitatily. Put on your flip flops, you certainly need them, nearly every table is placed in the sand. You can even enjoy your diner directly on the beach!
