One way or the other, be prepared for an experience. The journey to get to EITS Cafe is indeed an experience but once you get there, you can look forward to a pleasant difference when you compare EITS to other restaurants. There is indeed a homely feel and the owners are present and involved. The view and the ability to... More

Somewhere between the palate-pleasing Pea and Mint soup and the succulent Barrel-roasted chicken, I had to remind myself that I was actually at a restaurant. From the moment we entered EITS Cafe, the unmistakable "at-home" feeling was not compromised in any way. The challenge of finding a parking spot further up the winding mountain road was quickly forgotten, after receiving... More

Fun eccentric restaurant on the road up the blue mountains. The chicken was good and a slightly fusion menu. Some Jamaican and sons European.

This is a quaint, rootsy and rustic place! Well worth a visit. The atomophere is serene and the service was good. Not overly impressed with the food, but satisfying nonetheless. I would definitely recommend Eits.

I really liked botht he food and the people at EITS; although the view is not the same as at the Strawberry Hill Hotel, EITS has an air of "cool" that will leave you enchanted. Also, food was very, very good! Food: 9.5 Service: 9 Atmosphere: 10

You should probably go here ! I visited Jamaica for two weeks and other than my Jamaican partners cooking, this was the BEST meal I ate ! The barrel roasted chicken is juicy and flavorful - probably the best chicken I ever tasted. Even my Jamaican partner agreed that it was better than jerk chicken. I was a bit nervous... More

This place is tough to get to because it's in the Blue Mountains, but well worth it! The views are great, they have a little art gallery with eclectic finds, and the food is affordable. Breakfast took a bit long, but wondering around taking in the views was enough to pass the time.

Charming restaurant with an amazing view up in the mountains, but not too far a drive from Papine (1/2 hour maybe if that much). Food was pretty good, service okay, reasonable value for money. Clearly I wasn't blown away but it was very nice and I would definitely go back.

Stunning location with great staff and food. The view over the valley from their balcony (below the restaurant) was just incredible.
