Came to Eva's while staying at the Ritz Carlton, Laguna Niguel. Love the colorful atmosphere and island menu. Service was very nice and friendly - Eva is usually there cooking! Mainly a local's restaurant which is what I look for when I'm in town. This is a fun, relaxed atmosphere - not a white table-cloth stuffy place. So come for... More

The other night my family and I went to Eva's. We had a lovely waiter and very nice food. I had the Island Caesar Salad. It was very good. It had a nice tang to it. For desert I had the key lime pie, which was SUPER tart. The overall experience was phenomenal. I would go back.

Wow! Eva is simply amazing. My husband and I had our rehearsal dinner here on December 27, 2012, and the entire event was just perfect in every way. The decor and phenomenal cuisine whisk you off to the Caribbean which was exactly what we were looking for. My mother's side of the family is from Puerto Rico, so because of... More

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.

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.

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.

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... More

Came to Eva's before Pageant of the Masters with my wife. We passed the restaurant because it is a little hidden. It is very casual but has a nice vibe. We ordered a couple of apetizers and an entree and finally dessert. So here it goes.... We split the soup- Could have eaten another two bowls of it. Very flavorful... More

Visiting Laguna Beach and happened upon Eva's after searching reviews on my phone. Eva's is very small with perhaps 8 tables inside and a few on the patio. It is cozy, cute and everyone from our server to Eva made my boyfriend and I feel like family. The shrimp appetizer was outstanding. We ordered this because inability to obtain conch... More
