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..

We heard about El Fredo's from a local while on our honeymoon in the Caribbean. It turned out to be the best meal we had the entire trip. The staff was very friendly, and the food was great. I chose to go with the BBQ ribs and a side of cornmeal and my wife went with the garlic conch with... More

The goat water literally my best memory of my time in St Kitts. It was superb! Rich, filled with pieces of ground provision, big juicy well seasoned mounts of goat and the portion was generous. The kitchen is separated from the restaurant area, and much of the cooking is done outside in the traditional Caribbean way using a coal pot... More

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.

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.
