All four of us had a wonderful meal. The food was plentiful, delicious, and a great price point. The owner of the restaurant spent a lot of time helping us understand the game of cricket. It was a fantastic experience. Our Taxi driver suggested this restaurant. It is on the outskirts of Bassetterre so we walked through the town afterwards.

Really enjoyed this place. Not fancy or and well priced, but fun, local themed food. Frankly, appeared to be many locals picking up food and eating here.

If you want local food and reasonable prices make sure you eat at El Fredo's. They have fish, shrimp and chicken or for really local they have salt fish with "provisions" which is dumplings, green banana, yellow yam, white yam, breadfruit, plantains, pumpkin, and cornmeal fritter. Delicious!!

The other reviews were indeed accurate. It was the best food I had all week in St . Kitts and yet it wasn't as pricey. If you want to eat like a local then make sure you pay them a visit. Atmosphere it rather cozy and service was pretty quick.

If you want to taste Caribbean food as it should be, then make a visit. Great local food for a good price. Located on the edge of town, it is well worth a visit. Service is average (but by no means bad) but you can hold a good conversation with the owner. Local people also eat here which is always... More

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
