Our driver recommended El Fredo's as a good restaurant to visit during our stay. We checked it out today for lunch (FYI: restaurant hours are 11am to 4pm Monday through Saturday). We arrived around 1:30 and we were the first to be seated indoors which is still considered outdoors but it is fenced in with mosquito net covering. There was... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our meal at El Fredo's. I got the garlic conch which was delicious and my wife raved about the shrimp. The outdoor seating is exposed to an ocean breeze which keeps it pleasant. There was no set menu (only a list of specialities in the waiters hand) or prices given when ordering. Two lunches with beers was... More

Our tour guide for St. Kitts made sure that we had an authentic dining experience. The menu is outside....so it is easy to make up your mind. The drinks, food, and service was wonderful. We stuck to fish dishes...salt fish in a caribbean sauce, and whole snapper. Fresh from the kitchen with a taste that was unique. This was the... More

This is a favourite with the Island Locals. I believe that they only serve lunch so plan for that. Its an easy walk along the water front, turn right outside the port. And its worth the walk just to get some variety in your food. The service is good and the food arrives pretty quickly for the Caribbean. They serve... More

Our driver recommended El Fredo's for the best local fare and dropped us off in front of the restaurant. We had the garlic conch plate and the garlic shrimp plate and they were both delicious and filling. The rum punch was a nice and refreshing note to end the meal. Afterward, we had a pleasant stroll back to port to... More

El Fredo's is super close to port and you will see locals dining with tourists everyday! The food here never disappoints, the fresh creole snapper and mutton are amazing. You can get local St.Kitts breadfruit and green bananas. Also make sure to order a local drink they have lemonade with essence, it's the best lemonade on the planet.

We stopped at El Fredo's for lunch and it was the best. The server was very pleasant and helpful. We got there early so there was no long wait for service or our food. I chose one of the specials, "curried goat". My side was the "provisions" which was rather bland and starchy. Next time I would order a different... More

Food was local dishes chosen from handwritten menu that was taken from table to table. Very good and a change to try more local food. It is close to the shopping area at the port and only open for lunch.

We spent the day in St Kitts on our recent cruise and visited El Fredo's for lunch with our relatives who are locals. El Fredo's is walkable from the pier for those of you on a cruise like us - just along the sea front. The signs were good when we arrived as the place was full but we managed... More
