Description: Sprat net is wonderful restaurant located approximately 20 minutes north of Basseterre in Old Road Village. It is right on the water and is open for dinner. The owners are fishermen who go out in the morning and then serve their daily catch in the evening. They serve bbq lobster, ribs, chicken, steamed catch of the day fish, and wonderful pizzas. It is casual with ample seating and a beautiful view of the Caribbean Sea. Prices range from $10US to $30US for dinner. They also have a full bar.

We had the best seafood here while watching the sunset and wondered why we hadn't been there before! We had the Lobster, red snapper and swordfish. They were finishing cleaning the Swordsfish when we arrived early around 5pm, so we had to wait a little bit. Don't be in a hurry, may take little time to get your fresh fish... More

This is a little gem with free calypso music 2 days a week the swordfish is the best I have ever had as the owners catch all the fish and lobster they sell. You sit on picnic benches after ordering at the counter, most there are locals so that tells you something. Prices are reasonable. The only reason I did... More

We ended up at Sprat net for 2 dinners on this trip. Both were excellent. The first night we were there it was getting very crowded but on the Sunday night it was quiet. The food id limited but very fresh and local. Also, this is a shorts and t-shirt kind of place and eating with your hands. Also there... More

This would have to be our best meal on the island. The fresh lobster and ribs were unbelievable. Yes...they serve it on styrofoam, and the views of the Caribbean just add to the establishment. Had to be good. Our driver bought take out to take home to his wife. Get there before sunset to take in the beautiful colors.

This is a place for wonderful lobster amd great local music on Wednesday and Friday nights. Don't expect service at you table as it is a walk and order food and drinks when you want. Staff are wonderful and always helpful you just have to ask.

We asked a local where the best place for a sunset dinner would be and without hesitation he said Sprat Net. Maybe because it was in the village he lived (although we met him down south). Maybe because its true. Unfortunately we didn't get to experience a "great" sunset because it was cloudy. But given the location on the water... More

We like to go to establishments that are geared to locals more than tourists. That being said Sprat Net attracts both which we found positive. Great food and a beautiful view. We all left full and satisfied with our meals. The prices are great. You can't get any fresher than Sprat Net.

Arrived early to enjoy the sunset. Ordered Rum Punch and made our way to a picnic table on the grassy area. The sunset was awesome and it was time for more Rum Punch and dinner. We enjoyed the Kittitian version of grilled fish, lobster, shrimp, ribs and chicken. Corn, baked potato and rolls finished out our plates. If you like... More

My wife lived in St. Kitts for two years, and she always raves about Sprat Net. It definitely does not disappoint. The setting is absolutely beautiful, the drinks are strong, and the food is amazing and fresh. Their lobster is to die for, and they give you three halves in one order. The shrimp is also very good. I have... More

I have been coming to St. Kitts since 2000. Each time I return Sprat Net is a must. For me it is defining institution for what it means to be a Kittitian. If you want to be waited on hand and foot, if you want fine china, if you expect garnishes, fine presentation, and uniformed servers don't even think of... More
