My boyfriend and I were on a cruise (Princess Crown) and were referred to this restaurant by the shopping hosts (Sean & Brittany) on the ship. We had no idea what to expect and were pleasantly surprised by not only the location, but the food...More

We came in late so just had a glass of wine at the bar. Very nice restaurant. The bar staff was nice but not professional. I was drinking a $14 wine and was not done yet, the bartender re-filled it without asking. So we thought...More

Barefoot is a bit of a ride from Palm Beach or Eagle Beach, but worth it. It is not far from the airport. However, you sit with your feet in the sand and are just a few feet from the water. You get to watch...More

We ordered the Dejon Mustard soup and it was amazing, rich and full of flavor but not too much so. The waiter said it was the best in Aruba and we agree. We measure the quality of a chef by their soup and by this...More

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!
