Fantastic atmosphere and great food

I went for the lobster and I wasn't disappointed. The setting is great, just on the waterfront, which creates a beautiful atmosphere when the sun goes down. There was also a live band who were absolutely excellent. The grilled lobster and chicken was really nice and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I had... read more

This restaurant came highly recommended and we were not disappointed. It's about 30 minutes away from the Marriott where we were staying but it was worth the taxi fare. The restaurant attire is casual, you sit at picnic tables and eat with plastic cutlery but the food is amazing. We ordered the lobster/chicken and the lobster/shrimp and it was delicious.... More

I went here with a group of friends during restaurant week as they were offering a special deal on lobster. It was so good, words won't do it justice. The meat was succulent and so fresh. The lobster was big, at the end of our meal all of my friends and I were completely satisfied. The restaurant itself very basic,... More

A group of 20 or so of us came for dinner. We went early to ensure we could get the lobster. It was incredible- great food and a lovely view out to sea of the sunset, and then the full moon. Most of us had lobster combo meals- it was a full lobster plus a rack of ribs or two... More

Had dinner here and while the food and atmosphere was good the food took over 1 1/2 hours. Totally unacceptable, do not come if you want to eat in any adequate time

Very good place to crash in with friends, big portions (the "lobster and ribs" is not a mix of lobster and ribs, it is actually a plate of ribs AND a plate of lobster), fresh seafood of the day (gonna be good anyway) and great ribs. Not cheap though and service takes forever, so be sure to order just when... More

Sprat Net is a must-do dinner while in St. Kiits. They are not open every night and close when they sell out, so I recommend checking in with them early during your trip to know which nights they are open. We arrived around 5:30 for dinner and it was a perfect time for us. I highly recommend the lobster. It's... More

Good music, Good food, Good people. I bit out of the way, but that's not a true issue. As stated, the food was good, but a bit over priced. Might not go back unless I had a large group of friends to fill the dance floor, as again the price was a bit much. Kathy's on the beach has as... More

This is, by far, my favorite place to go to dinner in St. Kitts. Great prices for food and beer, lovely view, local charm and live music on Wednesday nights. Alice serves up the tastiest lobsters and the best ribs. We come here whenever we vacation at SK. The best JOHNNYCAKES!!! It is worth the $25 each way cab fare... More

Went here on a Wednesday night with a band playing around 7 PM - we each had the lobster dinner and got the pizza as well. Excellent service - best lobster dinner of the week. Saw a beautiful sunset - highly recommend.
