Sprat Net is a fabulous, family owned and operated, the restaurant located on Old Road Bay in St. Kitts that has been open since the mid-1990s. This is a “locals” place. One reason is that it’s secluded from the more “touristy” area in the south part of the island. To get to Sprat Net, you drive along a windy road past Basseterre and beyond Ross University. Once you arrive, parking can be difficult. Don’t worry. Everyone is friendly and will help you navigate your car into a parking space. If you aren’t driving, taxis will gladly take you to Sprat Net. Sprat Net is only open for dinner from Wednesday-Sunday. If time allows, be sure to stop by on Wednesday when live music is featured. Bands are also featured during the weekend.
What sets Sprat Net apart from other restaurants is that they catch their seafood. This ensures that only the freshest food will be served. When you arrive, be sure to place your order with the kitchen. It takes some time to receive your food because everything is prepared to order. In the meantime, wander over to the bar and grab a drink to enjoy while you listen to live music. The dining area consists of picnic tables which you share with other parties. This lends itself to a communal dining experience and a chance to make new friends. Also, free wi-fi is available, which is rare in St. Kitts. Go ahead, take a picture of the festive restaurant and send it to friends at home.
We’re not sure how they do it, but somehow the servers find you to serve your food. The lobster is delicious. The meal is served with potatoes, butter-drenched corn on the cob, and garlic bread. It is a filling and satisfying meal! If you’re not into lobster, the second most popular menu item is pizza. We’ve never tried it, but it looks delicious, and everyone seems to enjoy it.
If you get a chance, wander off the beaten path and try Sprat Net. You will be happy you visited an authentic “local’s” restaurant.
