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.

Great fish and music!

I have never tasted such superb snapper, a large fillet, totally fresh and superbly cooked. Somewhat loud music meant concentration was on food rather than conversation. We repaired outside to the seafront to continue the dialogue.

From placing order to receiving dinner the turn around is very quick and the staff are extremely efficient, kind, courteous and helpful. The live band on some nights is not a "too-loud-lemme-get-outta here" kinda way. It still allows conversation while swaying to the music. They even allow children to dance . The fish they serve is live catch and the... More

Eat like the locals! Nice, open air dining with amazing sunset views! Menu is written on a chalkboard as it is based on whatever the local fishermen catch that day. Get there early to see the sunset, place your order, get a drink at the bar, and grab a picnic table! Your meal comes on a paper plate with plastic... More

The food was good but most of the clientel was students from the islands medical/vet schools. They were enjoying themselves and there was a little too many people smoking (cigarettes) for my family's liking. The food was tasty. We had lobster, chicken, ribs, shrimp and swordfish. The live band was good. Great place if you're out for a good time.

Casual dinner right beside the ocean. Food took a while to get but it was worth it. We had the lobster and grouper they were outstanding!

The drive from Frigate Bay was great. Sunsets & Seafood were the best I had. Friday after dark has a local vibe & great reggae.

If you are a long time visitor to St Kitts, you will remember when the drive to Sprat Net's was the beginning of a great evening. Some of you will remember purchasing a loaf of bread across the road before entering Marcus' establishment. Now, driving yourself along the coastal road at night is unsafe. Take a taxi if you must...

when they say fresh fish they arent kidding. Fish arrived in a cooler right from fisherman's boat, and you pick the one you want, fish, shellfish, lobster. then they cook it there in front of you on the beach, VERY CASUAL and INEXPENSIVE. a must go.

We loved this place! The menu is simple...Choose your meat choice and they cook it up and served it with a small baked potato, a couple of scones, a small ear of corn. It's soooo good! The atmosphere is casual, but great! Beautiful place to watch the sunset over the ocean. Live music several times a week, background music otherwise.... More

Go on a Wednesday night to hear great local talent playing a mix of reggae, jazz, and blues in a relaxed informal atmosphere by the water in Old Road town, or check their facebook page for times and events. Great value if you are looking for something less formal - bar and grille with excellent food.
