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 ate here several times. It is on an unprepossessing site outside the centre of Basseterre on the coast road. The staff were very friendly and the owner and his wife had returned home from Wales where their grown up children remained. The food was very different from the tourist fare we were offered in most other places as well... More

Stopped there for lunch - very good local food. Definitely a local favorite - very good service and worth a trip to have lunch and enjoy some local Caribbean cuisine

This was my first time back to St. Kitts in many years and a friend recommended El Fredo's it was a delight. The food was great, I ate too much as i wanted to try everything i could. The service was pleasant and the ambience was perfect.

We were told to eat here from a great tour guide and we we're not disappointed. Great local flavor and very friendly service. Try the fresh fruit juices.

It's a casual local spot with a covered patio set amongst some shacks across the street from the seawall and it's lunch only. Entrees were affordable at $15 for a large plate of food. However, I had to watch out for bones in the national dish (Saltfish) and the beef rib had a lot of fat (island style?). The island... More

We went to this restaurant while in port on a cruise. The food was good and very authentic. The service was good. Other reviews have mentioned the soursop drink. I have had soursop on other islands and in Belize and it is a must try if you have never had it. This particular drink reminded me of a pina-colada with... More

Very unassuming location on the corner of bay road and Sandown road. Parking is a little tough, but we were on a scooter so I just pulled it onto the grass on the side of the road. I had the oxtail stew. It was served with rice and peas, some plantains and something that reminds me of Korean sweet potato,... More

Amazing and authentic local food. Everything was delicious! The staff is extremely helpful and accommodating and judging by the amount of locals, it's an extremely popular place.
