Eva is a great host. We were taken to this funky, colorful café after a matinee show at the Laguna Playhouse. The evening became a twofer because while waiting for Eva's to open we discovered the Coyote Grill across the street (another review). What caught my eye as we entered were the tables. Each is unique and made of monkey... More

Very small and intimate yet not formal. Eva knocks it out of the park. Everything on the menu is unique and tasty. Good wine list and an OUTSTANDING Rum list. Rum flights available. Make a reservation so you are not disappointed, always busy. Food it hearty and spicy Jamaican Jerk and curries.non spicy available for the chickens Fabiolous

I am not a food critic by any means - grilled cheese is good enough for me. But, I will give Eva's a shout out - it is a tiny restaurant located on busy PCH in South Laguna. You might drive by and miss it - look for the twinkling purple lights. It's very small - reservations suggested especially on... More

This was my second visit after a four year absence. The service is still slow. Nice folks, cheery atmosphere, unexciting dishes.

We had a great time at this restaurant. The staff takes great care of their guest. We loved the food and we will most likely stick to grazing the appetizers and dessert on our next visit. The entrees are delicious especially the pork but buying 2 appetizers for the price of one entree will probably get you the foodie experience... More

Great food. Excellent service (polite and on the ball). Quaint and lively atmosphere/decor. The best rum punch. Don't believe me? Have a couple. To the whiners...don't come back, you'll only be taking up space for those that appreciate fine food and drink, made and served with loving care. Too expensive? Go get food from the dollar menu at your local... More

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
