We only had breakfast there, but it was great

We stayed at the Inn so having a great breakfast there before a round of golf made sense. While a breakfast does not make a rstaurant, it could easily indicate how bad it is!!! Not this place.

We stayed here in March. We arrived just before the restaurant closed, and were starving, but they happily stayed open to make sure we were able to have something to eat. Our server was lovely...so friendly and accommodating. We were very impressed by the food and the service. We had breakfast the next morning, and once again were pleased. We... More

Busy at times with average food but with a nice spot to eat outside. Air conditioning made the inside unnecessarily cold. Reasonable wine list.

Dear Bert44364, Thank you for taking the time to share your comments. We are happy to hear you enjoyed your breakfast here. You are correct Olivers Gastro Pub has the same menu and kitchen team as Encore Dining Room – hopefully you will have a chance to try a dinner item or one of our daily specials should you come...

Had a business meeting with a colleague and decided to go their for breakfast as it is in close proximity to where I live. Ordered the standard Bacon, Eggs toast etc. arrived at the table hot and nicely presented. The Inn has a nice ambiance, good food and pleasant wait staff. Prices are typical for a hotel.

The staff and chef of Encore, in fact the entire team, provide a dining experience you will be hard pressed to find anywhere else. Warm, welcoming, exceptionally good food prepared with quality and care and attentive friendly staff. You must dine at Encore if in the Halifax-Dartmouth area, make a reservation!

He recommended two specials for that evening and they were outstanding. Our meals topped off by cocoanut cream pie (with REAL whipped cream not that plastic sh..stuff) and... More

Food was very well presented, but the taste was unique. You could tell, the chef tried to give you something extra. Not just the standard great french cuisine but a unique taste special herbs and spices I couldn't quite make out but very tasty.
