The staff was very nice, attentive and helpful The dinner salad was very good too with pineapple. We were seated as soon as we arrived for our reservation. I would... More

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

With so many great places to eat in Laguna, I wouldn't choose this one again. Great drinks but the food was way too oily/greasy. Spend your money elsewhere.

Food is amazing!!! Love the fact that the spicy dishes are truly spicy! My favs are the blackened catfish and curried snapper. The Aubergine Choka appetizer is also not to be missed. Also strongly recommend the carrot cake for dessert. Staff is extremely warm and helpful. Its like eating at a family event. Its a little hard to find so... More

Stopped in for an early dinner on the way through town, had heard about Eva's from some locals several beaches away and the place was even better than we heard!! The wait staff was knowledgeable and friendly and helped us select our apps and entrees from the menu, then helped us pair a rum from their incredible selection. Dinner was... More

I went with 3 other girlfriends after work upon making a reservation. I didn't know what to expect but I'd been to Jamaica at least 20 times. We were greeted very friendly like. I felt welcomed right away. We were the first group to arrive but it filled up in no time at all. You can miss it if you... More

Service was very good, food was above par and the cocktails are perfection! Much cheaper than a trip to the Caribbean!

We just had our 30th wedding anniversary party here. My guests are still raving about their experience days later. Eva created a wonderful menu and her staff were caring and professional. Our night was one for the books! My guests didn't want to leave, raving about the atmosphere. All of them said they will return!

Four of us visited on a Wednesday evening. Small place on Coast Highway and you'll probably miss it the first time you go by. Not crowded, tables inside and on a small patio out front. Quiet enough that we could talk easily. They're only open about four hours a night because Eva has to buy all the food and supplies... More

We ran across a review on Tripadvisor about Eva's and decided to try it out. A little hard to find but once we did we were so pleased.
