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.

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

This place is pricey for what you get. The food is average and I am being nice. I had the lobster and snapper plate that came with 2 johnnycakes and corn. The only items I enjoyed from my order were the corn and the red snapper (be careful of the bones). These johnnycakes were different. Not your fresh off the... More

tired of special sauce? Get the real deal - simple, fresh, plenty, live music 2 nites a week. Try the rum punch or just a cold beer. Be there before sunset and sit out on the lawn.

Sprat Net is a modest establishment hugging the Caribbean coast north of Basseterre. Founded by local fishermen, Sprat Net does not disappoint when it comes to fresh seafood. We got there after 8:00 PM on a Wednesday night and ate a sumptuous lobster dinner to the accompaniment of a local band with great vocalists. The atmosphere is decidedly casual and... More

We have been going to Sprat Net since our first trip to St. Kitts in 2003. Back then it was a quiet ocean side locals place with great seafood caught by the owners and served fresh each night. He always has lobster, even if others on the Island don't. Now it has grown in popularity, and people from the hotels,... More

Great Wednesday night out. Recommend you cab it with a group as it is out there along some pretty crazy roads and drivers (~$24 each way from Marriott ). Driver will wait as it is not worth his while going back to town. Band was fantantastic - 3 vocalists and 2 organ players playing mainly their own excellent soul /... More

During our 10 day stay on the island, we ate here twice. Truely a local hangout, therefore, if you're looking for five star elegance, look elsewhere. Wednesday nights are busy with live music. We ordered the lobster one evening, then enjoyed a pizza during our second visit. Parking can be difficult on Wednesday and Saturday nights, but its worth the... More
