I was happy when El Fedos reopened. Eating their is like going back in times. Nowadays it's difficult to find a place where you aren't rushed or feel rushed to enjoy not just a meal, but a local meal. Eating at El Fredos is like having a home cooked meal by a friend.

My wife and I have had lunch here a couple of times during our holiday on the recommendation of a dear friend that lives on the island. Good home cooked food, lots of choice and great value for money. Very polite staff and nice grounded surroundings. You must try their home made drinks, very refreshing and a great compliment to...

We went for lunch once on the recommendation of our car rental guide. It was so good we went again. The food was all fresh and came with a real assortment of local vegetables, some we had never had before. Dumpling with provisions, breadfuit, dasheen, mashed green bananas as well plantain, yams and sweet potatos.

Blink and you'll miss it! And if you miss it, you have missed out. El Fredos serves freshly made, West Indian dishes to dine in or take out. The only downside, is there are too many things you'll want and only so much you can eat! I normally go for the conch dishes, no matter the preparation that day, but... More

The menu is full of great choices from local food to local food. I had a rough time choosing because they are all good. I wish I could have them all. The locally caught fish serve with cornmeal was great or the soup of the day. They have so many choices. Love them load.

Been there many times and love the place so we were disappointed when we returned this year to see that it has closed. The owner became ill and needed to take care of some health issues. Not sure if/when it will reopen.

Cosy little restaurant, that offers authentic Caribbean meals. It is family run which brings the "home" feel and taste to it. It is in the city but on the outskirts, so parking is easy. Service is very personal, and the food genuinely Caribbean deliscious. Go early - limited seating.

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.
