  1. Great value, very friendly service and chilled atmosphere, and best views! We were very excited to stumble over this little cafe well located just outside the bustle of Waikiki tourist strip.

  2. Barefoot Beach Cafe was a highlight while holidaying at Waikiki. My mother and I discovered this cafe while walking up along Waikiki beach towards Diamond Head; 10 min walk from the main strip of Waikiki just behind lifesaving tower ‘2F’. What made this cafe so wonderful was the atmosphere. The staff were so friendly, the location was amazing with a 180 degree view of the ocean and the food was well…. mouth-watering! We ate lunch here on numerous occasions, our favourite meals were the World Famous Garlic Shrimp that was also served with soft rice, salad and pineapple, the Garlic Prawn salad as well as the acai smoothies were to die for. The Friday night BBQ buffet was a pleasant surprise, I had the best ever cooked salmon and mum thoroughly enjoyed her steak –cooked to perfection. The buffet offered a range of salads and vegetables. It was definitely value for money. The warm balmy night was topped off with a musician strumming his guitar along with his melodic voice and at 7:45pm a view of the Hilton Hotel’s Friday night firework display. Barefoot Beach Café is one place where we highly recommend for lunch or dinner and look forward to returning to eat there. Thank you to Kenye for her warm hospitality.

  3. This place was perfectly away from the crowds of the Waikiki strip. The food is just as good as any fancy restaurant and much more affordable. During the day, attire is board shorts, tank tops and bikinis. At night, its lit up for a perfect date night.
    We ate here 4 out of the short 7 days we were there. Breakfast, lunch and dinner were delicious.
    Love this place!

  4. Beatiful spot to watch the sun set over Waikiki while enjoying the live music and great food. Prices were inexpensive and the plate of Kalua pork and cabbage I had was heaping with pork. Nice way to wind down the evening.
