Description: 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.

Popped in here as we were looking for somewhere different for lunch. While nothing spectacular from the outside it was much better on the inside. Great menu of local food and drinks at very good prices. The chicken dishes were especially tasty! El Fredo's is walking distance from the main town area but we did see people park on the... More

If you want to feel the real flavor of where you are, go here, walking distant back to our ship after we left Leeward's excursion. Chef is someone who also came to the area one day, loved it and never left. Let the server (or Raphael) recommend what to order. Try the local food rather than something you know. You... More

Don't be fooled by the run down appearance on the outside at this restaurant on the coast just past the Zante docks. the food is good open just for lunch, and drinks are great. Prices are fair, this has been around for years so that tells you something

this is very good Caribbean food. The service is excellent and it is reasonably priced. As noted in other reviews many locals come here and I can see why. If you are in Basseterre, I would highly recommend this place to try some authentic Caribbean food. The juices are also excellent.

This is probably one of the best local restaurants I have visited in the Caribbean. Everything is cooked while you wait. Ingredients are fresh and tasty. The owner and staff are helpful and nice. Service is leisurely and friendly. The restaurant has many local people patronizing it and this alone speaks volumes. Highly recommended.

We were told this was the place to find real local food and we were not dissappointed. The restaurant is just along the front from the centre of town, and is covered over (shaded) open air with fans. We were rather late for lunch and so only ourselves and one other local couple and the owner were there. We chatted... More

We read about El Fredo's on internet and went there for lunch. There were only locals eating there besides us. It is always a good sign. We ate different things and everything was good. We got a lot of local vegies on side, some of which we did not recognize. All were good, especially mashed green bananas.

We were taken there as guests of St Kitts Tourism Authority, so we can't comment on the price. However, it was great to visit and enjoy local food and home-made drinks. Would return if we were on the island.

I have read good things on here about this restaurant and have wanted to try it for the last 3 trips to st kitts. This time, I went and ordered the garlic conch. I asked the waitress if it was just conch and garlic in butter and she assured me it was. I stated to her that I am not... More

Great local food. The green mashed bananas was so good. Can't wait to try these at home. Service was good. Where the locals go for lunch. How can you go wrong. Recommended by our taxi driver. We will probably go back before we leave.
