As you can guess by the name, Barefoot offers beachfront dining. Their best decorations are the nearby shoreline and swaying palms, their music is the lapping waves. They have specials which change weekly, so be sure to inquire about them when you sit down.


Served with an international flair, Barefoot Restaurant focuses on Caribbean dishes such as Caribbean grouper (grouper filet topped with mango cream cheese and a light spicy mango sauce) and a beef stew after the chef's grandmother's recipe. In addition to the main menu, there is also a special menu that rotates week to week depending on what is in season and the mood of the chef.

The menu features many good options, including seafood, and the influence of flavors can be intriguingly varied, including elements of both Aruban and International cuisines. The formality of the menu and service to expect from this restaurant is informal. The option to eat here is on the table during dinner only, so be sure not to miss their open hours.


Barefoot Restaurant breathes a tropical atmosphere. Located on a white beach, with the sounds of the ocean caressing the beach in the background. Dinner is served on the beach, or under a large palapa hut, during sunset, or under the nights sky. There are 20 tables under the palapa, and an additional 25 on the beach.
