We love barefood! We have been going there since 2010. Their carpaccio, salmon appetizers and fish entrees are really good. Thanks to Nikki and all their staff we always enjoy Barefood!

Back again for a 3rd time to Barefoot and wouldn't miss it in the future either. Great beachfront dinner with a spectacular sunset. Food is always excellent and service is always top notch. Worth the visit.

Most seating on the beach, which technically is public, so if it's on a Sunday, a lot of disruption from people swimming, especially early. We chose a window in the hut, and still got to see everything. Good service and food. Good quality food displayed...More

2nd time in this restaurant, came back for the sunset toes-in-the-sand experience, and it was amazing. But the food is just okay, for the price, i think you pay more for the ambiance than for the food itself.

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!
