Hi Eva! We have been to your restaurant many times over a course of 13 years but now with 2 teenage children we have only been for lunch. Is there a dress code at dinner and are children welcome at dinner? Thanks, from Boston, Mass

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.
