Our experience upon arrival was more than just a welcome. The lady that greeted us was very attentive and had us wait a few minutes for an inside table. Once we got a great table things started to slide. Our waiter I think was from another restaurant as a loner as they do when off season is upon them. He... More

We all had the Banderas Bay Salad which had tasty little shrimp on it. The dressing was a tiny bit bland but the salad overall was fresh. I also got the tortilla soup which was quite good but I couldn't eat it all. I had it chilled for lunch the next day and it was like a little cup of... More

After spending three months here in Bucerias we finaly had dinner at Encore. The meal was a 10 out of 10. The steaks were cooked to perfection. The service was perfect, the owner was singing in the band. The night was great. The garden setting was romantic. We couldn't have asked for anything better. Try this wonderful hidden gem. You...

We were at our resort for two weeks so one night we found a place in Bucerias for coconut shrimp and live Jazz. Armi Grano is from North Vancouver and she and her trio are awesome. She is a lovely singer. The food here is not cheap but it is awesome. What a lovely evening.

Wow, we really enjoyed Armi Grano's Encore Restaurant. Armi Grano and the Viva Jazz Trio provide music about 4 times a week and they are great! I am not really a jazz fan but this music was sweet and lively. Those musicians make it look so easy. There was a guest Sax player on a recent visit who really added!... More

The Encore isn't just about the food! Armi and her fabulous jazz band create a backdrop for a fabulous special dinner or a late night martini in Bucerias. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jtCVT0nDpDQ PS Reservations a must, especially on the weekend.

Ambience is the key element of an evening dinner at Encore. The service was friendly and helpful, the food fairly average as were the menu prices, but the live soft jazz from the owner and her band just made for a relaxing and enjoyable experience.
