phone 869 466 8871 A bit off the beaten path, but only 1/4 miles from the cruise ship port. Fantastic, authentic caribbean food. Very casual, screened-porch setting. This is where the locals dine and it's totally worth checking out. One of the best meals we had in the islands.

Should not be missed for lunch only, during visit. Excellent fresh food. Wait staff will explain menu items.

We walked here from the helicopter pad for chilled beer and fresh caught seafood. El Fredo's is a meeting spot, with townspeople chatting, some glued to their smartphones, some on lunch dates. The road along the waterfront is hectic, with taxis screaming by and gear grinding delivery trucks making that run into Basseterre. There is no waterview--that road (plus a... More

On one of our days touring parts of the island with a taxi driver, he suggested that we eat at El Fredo's for lunch. We agreed and had a decent meal at best. The setting was agreeable but nothing very inspiring, the meal was alright, the service was acceptable, and the cost seemed just a little high for the food... More

Ate at El Fredos for lunch on the recommendation of our driver. Nothing fancy. They don't even have printed menus. Waitress just recited what the chef felt like cooking, designed around fresh catch of the day. Authentic local Caribbean. Fish is served whole, which may put some off. I had garlic shrimp and my husband had red snapper. Both delicious.... More

Being rated number 1 caught our eye so we decided to try on our way to do a little shopping downtown. Stopped in for lunch and were kind of surprised that El Fredo's wasn't crowded and we could snag a table. Prepare yourself for a bit of a different kind of family run establishment. The menu changes daily based upon... More

We wanted to try a local restaurant before leaving St. Kitts. One local suggested El Fredo's, and our cab driver agreed and suggested the Pig Tail Soup. The restaurant is very small and right on the bay by the cruise ship docks. The food was authentic Kittitian -- roti, provisions, rice and peas, cornmeal, etc. There were many locals stopping...

Had a good lunch there with our guide, said it was a favorite of the locals. Several new food adventures with a local flair. Very nice ambiance and local color.

We spent our last lunchtime on the island at this great local place in Basseterre, and left us with a perfect final taste of St Kitts. Authentic local cuisine promptly and charmingly served.
