Friday night fish fry is a must and Fred's is the place to head for. The fish is really delicious especially sword fish. Other meals are available apart from fish. Service with a big smile and a good plateful of lovely food at a reasonable price. Go soak up the brilliant Friday night atmosphere at Oistins. At first it can seem a little un-nerving but it's perfectly save, not to be missed.

We went to Oistins Fish fry with a group from Sandals Resort, we walked all around looking for a place to sit and order food with no luck. We walked past Freds, and were old they would get us seating, so we ordered our food there. When the food arrived a short time later, it was a lot of food, healthy portions. I had the Kingfish and Swordfish both were absolutely great. i Preferred the swordfish because it had no bones. The people who run Freds re super nice and friendly, they made us feel welcome and put on some good grub. Oistins is a real busy night, about 50 places getting pushy trying to get you to eat at their place, Freds seemed less pushy, thats why we chose it. Enjoy the Oistens Fish Fry every Friday night, andyou can walk around and buy some art, or choose from many other souvenirs.
