first thing that pops out upon entry is the extensive rum list - really an amazing collection including some of the best that most of the Northern world is unfamiliar with from Venezuela & Nicaragua, as well as other choice Blue Label-priced selections. The food itself is very good, and comes in huge portions - we ordered 2 dishes for... More

I had an amazing dinner at Eva's this weekend on a quick OC getaway from LA. Eva herself was there to talk Rum with our table, and the food was delicious. I felt like I stepped away from Laguna Beach and found myself on vacation in this colorful, charming little restaurant.

So, I went to Eva's last night for a birthday dinner. I've been meaning to get to this place for a while so it seemed fun for a special occasion. None of us had eaten here before. We had a reservation at 5:45 and were seated promptly. Ambiance: The place is adorable! It loved the decor with the bright colors... More

Yes, this is a gem for South Laguna. Certainly worth the stop and dinner. Three of us started with the crab cake, coconut shrimp, and spicy shrimp. All were very nice. Although, the spicy shrimp didn't really need to be so spicy. We love spice but the heat was lingering and didn't add much to the dish. (I wouldn't get... More

Eva is awesome! Friendly service and delicious food and drinks. 365 varieties of rum to choose from. All of our dishes were well cooked and delicious. Jerk pork loin and jerk salmon were both incredible. Restaurant is small and casual. Make sure to call ahead and they'll do their best to fit you in. Warning: kitchen closes early on week... More

We have been visiting this cozy Caribbean restaurant in Laguna Beach for the past 5+ years. Eva's kitchen consistently delivers! .. Spicy Caribbean Shrimp appetizer made in Eva's own concocted sauce is a must try for anyone who enjoys "extreme" heat! ... All the rum cocktails are amazing - Pink Punani gets two thumbs up. Menu is small but authentic... More

Eva's restaurant came high recommended but was not very good. Spiced caribean were over powering and the entree over cooked. This is a restaurant living on reputation, not its actual food

We celebrated my wife's birthday last night at Eva's. While the service was friendly and and attentive I want to direct my criticism toward the prices they get for their entrees. I ordered the chicken curry while my wife asked for the shrimp curry. I was able to find a fair share of small pieces of chicken in my dish,... More
