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.

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.

We just walked passed it and dropped in. What a discovery. FAB food and great atmosphere. The owner Ken lived in Wales and 10 years ago opened this jewel. If you are anywhere near you must go. We had no idea it was a tripadvisor favorite. We will visit again before we leave.

We went to El Fredo's after a morning of shopping at Porte Zante and shared delicious ribs and plantains while talking local politics with the owner. It was a fun and relaxed environment. Completely perfect for our purposes.

Our family loved this little place off the beaten tourist track. We were surrounded by locals, many of whom were getting take out. The food was delicious-awesome chicken roti, yummy snapper w/ creole sauce, garlic conch and garlic shrimp w/ tasty local vegetables and sides, finished w/ great carrot cake and ginger coconut cookie. The staff were very friendly and... More

During a week stay on the sea in Frigate Bay we planned a day to explore Basseterre. We knew from previous reviews this is where we would be eating, and arrived at 1pm just as the locals were clearing out. Don't let the appearance on the outside or in the courtyard scare you, inside is cool, clean and relatively peaceful... More

El Fredo's definitely lives up to all the reviews . I had the grilled shrimp and my boyfriend had the mutton . Both were very good and my boyfriend was in heaven with the mutton and mashed bananas . Price was very reasonable and the staff were very friendly and attentive .

I was had lunch there several times and every time it satisfied my stomach.The material of food is fresh,I had tried fish, mutton, chicken, and go for different side dish: dumpling, rice, corn meal. Moreover, if you are there you should order ginger beer and soursop, it is nice to experience a local drink.
