We love this restaurant although it is up a dark road and it is therefore not safe to walk. We get a taxi for the 3 minute journey and pay $5 but that‘s fine. It is totally worth it for the view over Ocho Rios...More

Description
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. All food is cooked to order. Celebrities keep frequenting Evita's as they really enjoy it's romantic atmosphere and, also appreciate, 'value for money'....Occasionally there is live entertainment, usually, a 'guest star' appearance.
