Cocktails were amazing at Evita's. Food was a bit pricy so we just had drinks while watching the sun set

Thank you, for your so 'candid' review. I am glad, though, you enjoyed our 'amazing' drinks while watching the sunset, from our veranda, overlooking Ocho Rios and the sea. Hoping you will make it Jamaica and Evita's, again ... soon. Ciao! Eva

Gorgeous authentic italian dinner seated overlooking the entire harbour from the top of the hill. This is a true gem. Evita herself comes and greets you more than once to ensure everything is perfect. Just a lovely dinner!

Amazing food and location. Food was the best on the planet. Evita is a wonderful woman. Ask for Garth as your waiter. This experience saved an otherwise so-so vacation

Evita's was like a warm hug following a walk through torrential rain one balmy January day. For those coming into the port it is probably a ten minute walk, up a hill that is totally worth it! The restaurant has fabulous views of the bay...More

Set in an authentic 1860 Historic Gingerbread House, overlooking Ocho Rios, Evita's opened in 1989 and has established a reputation for great service, ambiance, decor, view and excellent Italian and Jam-Italian 'fun' creations.
