This is one of the special restaurants that have the beautiful ambiance of the sand and water right at your table. It was very pretty. I've decided in Aruba there are quite a few places like this but sometimes the food doesn't quite match the...More

We like to be on the water as much as possible when we travel and love beachfront dining. The food and the ambience were just what we come to an island to enjoy. The only reason we gave Barefoot a 4 star is the appetizers...More

We celebrated my father-in-laws 90th birthday at Barefoots. The service is amazing, the food is good and the location perfect, as was our sunset view.

We had a hard time finding Barefoot, but loved the location, once there. Very romantic on the water, and great sunset. Service was inconsistent throughout the night. Our server seemed to get lost or distracted at times, leaving us wondering if he’d forgotten to fulfill...More

We went to Barefoot for the second time. We ate right on the beach at sunset. The staff was excellent and the food delicious. It’s a little pricey but oh so worth it! My pineapple chicken was soooooo good and the others had fish that...More
