Prompt friendly service. Great outdoor bar with a surprisingly large menu for lunch and supper, and delicious fish sandwiches.

After a long bus ride, lugging bags, just wanted to sit outside and have a drink. Water taxi information had to be secured, but in the meantime quite a few minutes were needed to search the lengthy menu for the in between times. It was a wide open venue with several gals waiting tables without a sense to who or how long was appropriate to wait before coming by. The bar was kept active and looking at the drink menu confirmed why! It was ok, there was WIFI for people in need but when I chose to order "grilled pineapple" in a country that had no surplus of fresh fruit....and was served the perfect rounds of CANNED pineapple (and only 2 slices!) I was not impressed. I told the waitress to take it back, I didn't want that and was insulted. The drinks were nothing great either; could down several and not feel a buzz. Was told the burgers were decent, but in my estimation when traveling and exploring new countries, why would I order a burger!? Tried their guacamole and pico....they were fine.

Barefoot Bar is practically located on the only street if arriving by water taxi or by bus from the north rather than flying into the seaside Caribbean town of Placencia in Belize. The place has a rustic feel to it with heavy tables, matching seats and very tall stools at a bar in its midst. Food is nothing to write home about but its edible. Not your place for a dinner in warm surroundings, but okay for a drink in the afternoon with a burger or the likes. It can get noisy when busy and service then slows down a lot. The restrooms need to be cleaned more often and it would be helpful if the restaurant designated an area for non-smokers (option in Belize that lacks a law prohibiting smoking in public establishments).

We had the smoked chicken dip (which was cold and just ok...the hot chicken cheese dip was much better). The Spicy Cilantro Fish wrap totally made up for the so-so dip, and the quesadillas were the cheesiest I have ever seen in my life. I would absolutely go back.

Visitted the Barefoot Bar twice in our short visit to Placencia. The Daily Special cocktails are worth a try and the menu is the biggest i have ever seen in a bar. Try the jalepeno chicken burrito - very nice.
