First time I Aruba and decided to try Barefoot. It was truly an awesome experience. The staff were all so friendly and the food was fantastic. It doesn't hurt the ambiance that you have a fine dinner watching the sunset on the beach.

We enjoyed a fantastic meal at the Barefoot. Dinner on the beach was a perfect way to spend our last night on the island.

Restaurant was very accommodating and didn't make you feel like an alien by ordering Gluten Free - they understood what Coeliac meant which was a big plus and actually took the time to make sure everything was ok with the meal. A+++

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!
