The Barefoot restaurant is a great place to enjoy a satisfying meal, and view some of the local art scattered around the walls.

Easter weekend on Maggie Island was a tough time for the service industry with 12 times the normal population on the island for a few days. That said, the friendly guys at Barefoot, were on the hop and food was delivered in good time. There was a good selection to choose from, a few less than the Internet menu though,... More

I dropped in here for a quick lunch before our ferry after working on Maggie for the morning. We both ordered the home made pumpkin ravioli with a creamy slightly blue cheese sauce. It was fantastic. I make my own pasta and eat it at restaurants and this was one of the best I have ever eaten. The service is... More

I loved the ambiance of the restaurant. You can enjoy a quiet dinner here. It's not cheap but the serving is really good. Tastes good too. Loved the strawberry daiquiri. Staff are friendly, quick service.

With a couple of the dining options in Horseshoe Bay closed we were pleased to find "Barefoot" was open; it looked nice - the place is full of original artwork and attractively decorated - and we were warmly welcomed. We took a table on the first floor terrace. We chose two pasta dishes; mine a spaghetti bolognese , Mrs H... More

We had lunch here on our last day on Magnetic Island and were sorry we weren't staying longer as we'd definitely have eaten there again. I had the vegetarian Thai green curry with rice which was one of the best Thai curries I’ve had outside of Thailand. My husband had spaghetti with locally caught scallops and prawns, coconut cream and... More

Visited on Valentine's Day night and were surprised to find a number of other venues in the area were closed. It was a lovely humble setting with fantastic food! The specials were great and the free glass of bubbly was a nice touch. The service was also genuinely friendly and overall we thoroughly enjoyed the evening.
