A can't miss destination. Operated by the same folks that own Quinta del Carmen, the food is of equal quality. Service is excellent and being able to watch the water, and the boat traffic adds to the atmosphere....

We had dinner at Barefoot with my wife and two sons. The atmosphere was great. We watched a couple having dinner get engaged on the beach. The food was excellent as well as the service. We highly recommend.

We dined at the Barefoot Restaurant in October. I don't know how Aruba celebrates the New Year but, dining on the beach with my wife (best friend too) and warm sand between my toes sounds about perfect.

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!
