Up on the hill in Ocho Rios, Italian dishes with a Jamaican Flair. Try the Rasta Pasta. The view is outstanding.

My husband an I have eaten at Evita's every time we have traveled to Ocho Rios. It is a beautiful setting and a very relaxing dinner for any couple wanting to venture off the resort.

The idea of leaving our all inclusive complex and going for an Italian meal in Ocho Rios may seem odd but a trip to Evita's makes for an interesting change of scenery and taste. Our hotel made the booking and Evita's sent a taxi, included in the price of the meal, to take us to and from the restaurant. Evita's... More

Thank you, Russell, for you so detailed review and, compliment! Evita’s has been in business in Jamaica for 30 years, 25 of which, in Ocho Rios. Time flies when you are having fun….

We loved Evita's... It was the best meal we ate the whole time we were in Jamaica. It was very pricey but worth every penny. The escargot was delicious and everyone in our party was very pleased with their meal and the drinks were wonderful. Evita was such a dear. You wont be disappointed.

Thank you, Patricia, for your wonderful review, compliment and recommendation! I am really happy that you and everyone in your party, enjoyed the meal, drinks and Evita’s special ‘version’ of Escargot. It was a customer who suggested the addition of fresh mushrooms to the ‘lonely’ escargot in garlic butter and this Ja-version, has been a hit, ever since. Ciao! Eva More

My spouse and I dined at Evitas restaurant January 2015. It was really a disappointment. I heard of it and recommended several guest there however my experience was less than expected. The service was poor. It's not necessary to make a reservation as your request is disregarded. It is costly in that the cuisine is poor. Depending where you sit... More

Thank you for your review, JamaicanQutty, and I am so sorry that you were disappointed! I have made some research and from what I found out is that, the evening you came, it was a trainee who seated you and served your table. I was not in the dining room when you came, otherwise I would have followed this up... More

The restaurant and the view were lovely. The food was delicious but some items were a little expensive. My shrimp cocktail was $9 and had 3 shrimps. Don't let the signs fool you... it's quite a steep walk up the mountain to this restaurant and for those of us that are a little older and out of shape - it... More

Thank you, Lisa, for your lovely review. I am sorry you thought that the jumbo shrimp appetizer was expensive, I have not had this complaint before. May be, I should serve more of a smaller, size… but, the jumbo shrimp, especially how they are served, hot off the grill, are so much juicier… My sign, at the bottom of the... More
