A short ten minute walk from the cruise pier. Go right as you exit thru the old museum, and walk along the bay side road and it is on the left hand side. Wonderful food, spotless kitchen and tables and bathrooms. The homemade HOT SAUCE is delicious. Again, don't judge by the your initial impression of the outside. And it... More

We wanted a local restaurant and our cab driver dropped us here within sight and walking distance of our ship and the main shopping area of town. We were delighted. It truly was local as we were the only foreigners in the restaurant. Not fancy but lots of fresh fish and local cuisine on the menu with many choices from... More

We ate at El Fredos a few times during our visit, at leaat 5 times! The chicken and ribs combo was excellent with a variety of options for sides. We also ate off the specials board. The fry fish was beautiful and the Garlic Shrimp included the best garlic sauce I've ever tasted. Again there is a selection of sides.... More

I asked the folks at the tourism authority in St. Kitts to recommend a restaurant that featured local food. "El Fredo's," they said. I ordered the national dish of saltfish, dumplings and provision. My wife had the ribs. The saltfish was the best I've eaten on our Caribbean trip!

Friendly restaurant, serving good local food and fantastic Rum Punch. We had a great time and Jasmine is a great host. Over looks the Bay and not too far from the Harbour.

I frequent this very pleasant medium scale restaurant. The staff especially the owners are extremely accommodating. They are more than happy to fix any errors and orders and will bend over backwards to make their clientele happy. My disappointment is that they're not open on a Monday for lunch..

A bit off the beaten path, but only 1/4 miles from the cruise ship port. Good local cuisine and authentic Caribbean food. Very casual, screened-porch setting. This establishment is a local Hotspot for lunch and is totally worth checking out.
