Mid Afternoon Lunch

So we stayed in the Bayview Hotel opposite Enca and only decided to have lunch there on our last full day. The food was amazing. I would say the best Chicken Vindaloo I have ever had. Great value for money, friendly staff and fantastic food, can't ask for more than that. Thank you... read more

Decided to eat out here tonight after reading the reviews. We have eaten at several in the area but enjoyed this one the most. Three of us enjoyed traditional curries, chilli chicken, lamb Rogan Josh and vegetarian curry with plain rice pilau and garlic naan bread. Delicious. The other 3 decided on western dishes which were also thoroughly enjoyed. The... More

After a few dissapointing experiences at Hard Rock we dropped in to Enca, and was really suprised. The surroundings, restaurant and location is not the best but the food was excellent. Close to the road and lots of flies is affecting the experience, but still an excellent choice for dining. We visited the restaurant several times, and the service was... More

Late (for the kids), no one could agree what we wanted. We came here and they had everything, and it was all very good. Surprisingly so to be honest. Not one for date night but if you need a good honest feed, for it.

Their Indian food is honestly very decent and tasty. Dunno if I was super hungry but I especially love their cheese garlic Naans. Their Butter Chicken, Aloo Gobi and Tandoori Lamb are good! Totally enjoyed lunch. Flies are a problem though, it can be very distracting to eat our meal in peace. One even 'dived' into my drink and ruined... More

Enca's is just opposite the bayview resort and near to the hard rock hotel. The food is excellent with its variety of Asian and Western dishes. The Indian dishes are out of this world. Everything is cooked fresh and the kitchen can be seen from the tables. The service is excellent with friendly smiles from all the staff. The prices... More

There are quite a lot of review talking about the friendly staff - when I was yesterday there, they made all a pretty tired and bored impression and from the welcoming smile was not much to see. I was early - around 7 and there was only 3 tables occupied and it still took quite a while until somebody bothered... More
