The food is unreal. The ambience is beautiful. Good service. We ended up going there twice because it was so good, both at night though. Wish we made it during the day to take in a different view. I would try everything on that menu! Good price point too.

The server was well informed, attentive, friendly and helpful. We reserved ahead to insure seating with a view of the city, and were shorted to a table with possibly the best view in the restaurant.tje atmosphere was relaxed and inviting.

Evita's restaurant had an amazing view of the city! The food was above average but the view is worth it, outside seating and overall cute place.

Evita's is high on a hill over-looking Ocho Rios. We go here regularly when in Jamaica. The food is excellent, the staff very friendly, the atmosphere outstanding. Don't be surprised to meet Miss Eva, the owner, during your evening as she walks through her restaurant speaking with guests. Decent wines, a nice mix of Jamaican and Italian dishes.

All 4 of us thoroughly enjoyed our meal ..and the blended drinks were the BEST I have ever had...esp. the "hummingbird"...loved it. Very romantic with view of Ocho Rios...up in the hills...small koi pond...then small lights...so pretty and staff so warm. Met the nice, friendly owner as well. Highly recommend.
