What to say, first time being here and it was amazing; view stunning, relaxed afternoon when we went and the food was simply AMAZING really good. We also had desert which included homemade chocolate only can describe as a biscuit cheesecake that was simply out of this world and a must try!! Fabulous afternoon and many thanks to the chef.

For a beautiful view of the sea and Ocho Rios at night this is the spot. Sevice is very good and the free shuttle pick up and back to your hotel is a great service considering taxis a very expensive here. We enjoyed the food although the pastas are pretty average. I had the spaghetti with shrimp and the shrimp... More

Eva's presence just added to the ambiance with stunning views after dark. The food was excellent, especially the Jamaican Viagara (fried conch) and Jamaican Bobsled Pie (chocolate pie and ice cream). Our vacation in Jamaica was to celebrate my birthday (last Tuesday) and our wedding anniversary (in December which we missed celebrating because we were both sick). This meal at... More

We had a 2-night stay in Ocho Rios, and Evita's dinner might have been the best part of that stay. Despite the fact I wasnt feeling well, I still went here with the family and enjoyed the very good food and neat atmosphere, ambiance, and location. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a nice, comfortable place for... More

My husband had the baked fish in foil- a little bland but overall ok. I had the mussels and wished I had ordered an entree size vs an appetizer portion. The... More

Delicious food, I stared with Marlyn and then I tried the Curry Jamaican shrimps with pasta. Service excellent, I don't know the name of our waiter but he was great. At the end of the dinner we met... More
