Eva's Brickhouse is unique amongst restaurants as seating is limited to two tables per evening. Guests are treated to 4-course meals of the highest quality in an atmosphere designed for comfort and relaxation. The average party dining with us spends between 3 and 4 hours enjoying their dining experience. Clients tend to feel as if they are dining in a friend or family members home rather than a restaurant. Although seating is generally limited to 8 guests per evening we do have a beautiful wood table in the art gallery which offers the same waterfront view as the patio dining area to accommodate parties between 8 and 14. The specialty of the house served every evening at Eva's is life long memories to go!

Our experience at Eva's on Valentine's Day this year was serendipitous. We had no reservation but thankfully found the one open table in the house. Kent welcomed us warmly and made us feel like we were dining in his home amongst friends. The food was clearly a labor of love for Kent, who shared his techniques and the origins of... More

Had a great dinner. Fantastic salad and his special home-baked ravioli and had a tender flame cooked steak. Just moved down to Bucerias and getting the condo ready, so it was a very relaxing night, great atmosphere, love his dogs and will be back again. Beautiful view of the bay with all the boats at the Marina.

My boyfriend had arranged a lovely dinner the last night we were in La Cruz at Eva's Brickhouse. The restaurant was closed entirely for our private dinner; needless to say, we had quite an exquisite night. From the moment we walked in the door, Kent (the owner) happily welcomed us and made us feel right at home. The table was... More

We had the pleasure of dinning with Kent, and cannot say enough. He went above and beyond to make it a perfect capstone experience to my wife's birthday and our time in Mexico. In other comments below it seems as though some found it a little pricy when comparing to other Mexican venues, however it is unbeatable compared to the... More

One of our favorite meals ever! All the food was splendid, the Caesar salad was the best either of us ever had. And the homemade raviolis....heaven. Kent was a warm and genial host, and he has created a place that is perfect to enjoy a relaxing view of Mexico. We enjoyed the sunset, surrounded by lovingly tended roses, sea breezes... More

Kent was very welcoming and one of a kind. He definitely made it an amazing dining experience. It was the best Cesar salad and lamb I've ever had. His marinara sauce was one of a kind as well as his cheese cake. You should absolutely stop by if you are in La Cruz for an awesome meal!

Easily the most unique dining experience and BEST meal I've ever had! Kent opened up the restaurant just for us and welcomed us into his home off of the marina with open arms and friendliness that could make anyone's night amazing. Everything was absolutely exquisite!
