By far my favorite restaurant in Laguna Beach and one of the only places one can go to get an authentic caribean meal. You must make reservations since they are a small establishment open from 5-9pm. Very intimate atmosphere and wonderful flavors.

Went to Eva's on a Sunday; reservations are encouraged. The staff was very welcoming and helpful, since we were not familiar with the menu choices. The drinks and food were very flavorful. Not for delicate palettes. The curry was thick and spicy!

Eva gave the recommendations, and hugs after dinner. That gives you a sense of the atmosphere. It's a small, colorful dining room with a few outside tables (no views). Foods are vibrant, spicy, large-portioned and delicious, from seafood to curries and jerk options. One person...More
