We have been to Barefoot a few times now when in Aruba and it never disappoints us. The setting is lovely right on the beach with your table in the sand. Go for the sunset and enjoy the incredible view, watch the planes arrive, or the cruise ships depart. The food is always fabulous. This year I had the rack... More

Most beautiful atmosphere, on the beach watching the sun set. Excellent service, chef's specials always delicious, unique and utilizing the food of the island and catch of the day. Service, Nicky and Claudia and their staff could not be more helpful and attentive. We have never seen them not running, attending to guests, taking that sunset photo for visitors, making... More

We went there for my Birthday and got a nice table at the first row on the beach. Staff was very nice and friendly at this place except of our waitress who was pretty "snooty". We still had a good time despite that!

I made a 6:30 reservation months ahead and Suzanne emailed me to tell me that if I wanted to make sure we saw the sunset we should change the reservation to 6:00. We did and the sunset was fabulous. Our table was right next to the water with a gorgeous view. They brought us champagne for an anniversary celebration and... More

Nice place to go reserve a table.on beach and close to the blue.sea. Best time half hour before the sunset so one can enjoy a beautiful sunset and if you are lucky also a cruiseship leaving the ports.

We went to barefoot twice because how nice is it to sit on a beach for dinner in Aruba. My favorite things about the place are the atmosphere (of course) and the great wine list. They have a lot to choose from as well as nice brands. Both nights we ate there the food was just ok. The first night... More

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 Justin, with some of the old school favorites (sirloin with bearnaise, or tuna steak with teriyaki) as well as some original dishes not found anywhere, with unique combinations (smoked salmon & shrimp, grouper & mango or leg & rack of lamb) and wonderful vegetarian 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!
