“Not the type of food that I like”
Reviewed January 3, 2013

This place gets great reviews but I didn't like it. So I would just say that perhaps, it just doesn't suit my taste. The place is definitely not classified as highend by any means and decoration not for romantic dinners.

“Wonderful food & service in South Laguna!”
Reviewed December 31, 2012

You feel welcomed immediately! Recommend Eva's knockout rum punch, spicy prawn appetizer and conch fritters. The jerk pork and curry snapper were excellent. Definely a local favorite with a neighborhood feel.

“Excellent food and charming atmosphere!”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

If you want great food in Laguna, I highly recommend going to Eva's.

It is one of the favorite places in town for locals. Eva (the owner) works almost every night, and she takes it upon herself to ensure that everyone has a wonderful dining experience.

“A Gem”
Reviewed October 9, 2012

This place is a must if you visit Laguna Beach. We were given the recommendation from a valet at our hotel and so glad we took his advice. We did not have a reservation (for 2) but I highly recommend it since it is quite small. First of all, the food is fabulous as was the rum punch. But what is so special about this place is Eva and the pride she takes in her food and your total experience. You definitely feel like her special guest - she visited our table multiple times during our dinner and is just as charming as she is talented in the kitchen. Both our entrees were fantastic (pork and fish) and the portions were quite generous. We were on a nine day trip and this was our favorite dinner which is saying alot.
