Description: 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.

Only open at lunchtimes, this little placed, owned and run by an ex Glamorgan cricketer provides superb local food at great prices - really wholesome and tasty stuff - always busy and bustling - great place to eat - it does get busy when a ship is in - be warned!!

Have made several trips to ST Kitts however on each occasion have missed having lunch at this local restaurant . Remedied this today and have just returned from a delicious lunch at very reasonable prices!!!! The lunch here was a true Caribbean experience. Varied local dishes& vegetables made up the menu & the Rum Punch was one of the best !!! Staff were very friendly and service was excellent. The restaurant was spotlessly clean and very informal. Locals and visitors alike frequent this restaurant ...a good recommendation. Would recommend you try El Fredo's if you want to sample local cuisine at affordable prices. This restaurant is only open lunchtime & a short walk from Basseterre on the Bay Road.

We have been walking by El Fredo's for the past 7 years on our various walks into town from Frigate Bay. Finally stopped in after reading reviews on Tripadvisor. Well worth the wait and we will be back often. Very good local food, curried mutton, grilled shrimp and all the rest. Delightful owners and service. See you soon, Mon!

This is a fantastic lunch spot in Basseterre. Some very unusual choices and a menu that changes everyday. We ate there a few times. The conch and the saltfish are particularly interesting and the cornmeal with okra were a welcome change to the usual side dishes of rice or chips. Lovely owners too!

Had the pleasure of going to eat at this gem today. Our tour operator Kelly eats there whenever possible. The owner "Ken" greeted us as if we were family and he can mix an unbelievable rum drink for you, while you are waiting for your food. I had the Mahi and my wife had the shrimp. Both dishes were bursting with the local flavors and local sides. A very relaxed and enjoyable atmosphere, great service and friendly staff. I can attest to the fact that it's #1 rating is well deserved.
