We had heard a lot about this place and were not disappointed. Lots of locals eating on trestle tables. Pizzas on offer but we went for the local seafood. Choose what you want from the menu, you will need to go to the kitchen counter. The waitress will write you a chit which you then pay at the bar. Take... More

We went based on many recommendations and were not disappointed. The prices were reasonable and the food was outstanding. We learned that on Wednesday they had live music so that is when we went. We had a great time. It was very busy but did not feel crowded. It was a great place with many locals and tourists.

This a truly local experience. Loud music on a Wednesday evening, and the food is great. Do not dress up, as this is equivalent to an English 'spit and sawdust' venue! Lobster, shrimp, ribs, etc Lloyd on offer at very reasonable rates! A real experience!

If you're in St. Kitts, you must visit Sprat Net. I have never enjoyed fresh seafood as much as I enjoyed the fresh red snapper here. I also tried the lobster, and it was really amazing. There is really a big difference when you fresh seafood as opposed to frozen.

Sprat Net is the place to go on Wednesday night. The lobster meal is excellent! It starts around 6, but it is recommended to get there by 5:30 to see the sunset over the water. It is a great view. and we're glad that we did go early. It does get crowded later, especially on Wednesday since they have live... More

Nothing fancy (sit at picnic tables) but the lobsters were caught during the day and grilled for you at night. The barbecue chicken and ribs are great too. There is a full bar plus soda and, surprisingly enough, terrific New York style pizza! Go on Wednesday for a band that starts around 8pm but get there earlier to snag a... More

Extremely laid back place to grab some amazing food and watch a beautiful sunset. The pizza is great, as is the lobster and the frozen drinks. They have the lobster in a boat by the tables where you can see what you are about to eat.

We met a young couple from Chicago and went this last Wednesday with along for Friday's offer live music.

Very different place on the south coastline to the west of Basseterre. From memory, about a 30 - 40 minute drive, but well worth it if you like lobster. Aim for Friday's (and I think Wednesday) as its half price lobsters. All fresh (presented in a boat!). You pay for your order, then go up to the kitchen area, and... More

Rustic indoor/outdoor 4th generation restaurant with great food. Why Mon/Wed? Half price lobster. 45 EC which is currently about $16.75. Potatoes, corn, and bread. $2 local beer. Don't get the combos on half price night because it's only on the lobster. DO get the lobster!

Sprat net is wonderful restaurant located approximately 20 minutes north of Basseterre in Old Road Village. It is right on the water and is open for dinner. The owners are fishermen who go out in the morning and then serve their daily catch in the evening. They serve bbq lobster, ribs, chicken, steamed catch of the day fish, and wonderful pizzas. It is casual with ample seating and a beautiful view of the Caribbean Sea. Prices range from $10US to $30US for dinner. They also have a full bar.
