The huevos rancheros are delicious and servers made us feel very welcome. We had to go back a second time because it was so good. Definitely recommended!

There were 6 of us and all found something to fit our needs. Vegetarian plates as well.Highly recommend. Call ahead as they... More

My wife and I loved our dining experience at Encore. In fact, we've eaten there several times. The atmosphere is great which includes smooth jazz music and a garden setting. Evenings with live jazz are exceptionally fun. Our favorite meal is the lemon grass pork chop. WOW. Everything we,ve eaten there is very good. The thing that seperates this restaurant... More

We dropped into Encore twice while in Bucerias. The first time for jazz night. We were given a wonderful table close enough to the band to hear but still able to carry on our conversation at our table. The service was top notch with our server hustling like crazy to keep his customers happy. The food was served fairly quickly... More

Disappointed. Our calamari and Lumpias seemed to have been deep fried in old oil and had no good taste to them. The main meal was okay and our waiter was very good. It might have been an off night, because we had wonderful experiences before.

Thank you for dining at Encore. We invistigated your complaint and made sure that frying oil is being changed regularly. We sell lots of coconut shrimps, calamari, yam fries and lumpia so our frying oil is changed regularly. We did not have other complaints that night so we ca not really reprimand our kitchen staff. We apologized for this incident.... More

Our daughters were with us and we wanted to take them to a restaurant with a twist. Encore has such lovely food and the jazz music is the best. This evening our waiter, Antonio, stole the show. He was so personable and friendly that he totally made our experience a 10!! He is a gem and made us feel so... More

I had a seafood linguine. The alfredo sauce was a bit thick, but flavorful. The service was excellent. My partner can't even remember what he ate, but that isn't unusual. He especially enjoyed the jazz music and the paintings on the wall.
