It was my last night in Ocho Rios and i was starving for a nice huge meal. We saw the sign for Evita's just walking by/driving by on the street. Curiosity made me take a chance and explore this so called place called Evita's. I was greeted by this beautiful woman with a great smile that defined comfort. I got... More

Had heard about Evita's for years and finally went from Kingston for Sunday lunch on the new Highway. Peaceful, lovely view, good baked mozarella, lasagna and fish of the day. Extensive menu at reasonable prices. Look forward to going back when Eva is there also.

As italian food is my favourite, it was a must to stop at Evita's on our way through Ochio Rios. A nice little place that could do with a bit of tlc. Staff appeared very bored and it all seemed quite rushed. As we were the only guests that evening, it looked as if they couldnt be bothered. Food however... More

I just returned to my villa and couldn't wait to post a review about this wonderful restaurant! The food was absolutely amazing!! My family and I (a party of 10) couldn't stop sharing bites because we all debated that our meals were the best... I ordered the pork medallions and it literally melted in my mouth!

Neatly tucked away in the hills of Ocho Rios with its beautiful ocean view, there is no place like Evita's on the island. The Italian/Jamaican fusion of its food and the environment will set you in a very nostalgic mood. The staff is always warm and friendly and its always a pleasure to sit and have a chat with the...

Mamma Mia, thank you for the review and the compliments … I feel really flattered. It is always a pleasure to see when patrons come back, looking forward to another nice experience, at Evita’s. It is then, that myself and staff, get even ‘happier’ and I guess, it projects… with possibly a little more attention, to even small, details. Looking... More

After reading reviews on Tripadvisor I was determined to visit Evita's and I was not disappointed. The drink and entree menu was extensive so we had a hard time making our decision! I went with the fettuccine carib-alfredo (with fish, lobster, baby shrimp-yum!) and my husband had the jerk spaghetti. Both were fantastic dishes. I really loved the Jamaican touch... More

My family recently visited Evita's for our parent's wedding anniversary whilst on holiday in Ocho Rios. It was recommended to us by a local and we could not be happier.
