“Johnny Breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013

Johnny Breakfast is your traditional bacon and eggs. But at 50 pesos, in a beautiful setting with good waiters it makes a great start to the day. Coffee is exra

“Oh well...,”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 25, 2012

Last year it was better, by far. This year the food is mediocre and, frankly, the singer/owner's piercing voice should rest more often in course of the evening. Appetizers were forgettable, steaks fatty and really not to be mentioned. The seafood platter was bland and without imagination, only the espresso merrits mark of apprecoation. The place is more expensive than its quality merits even though the limited wine list is at least realistically priced.
Keep going, better places ahead...

Thank you for your review. We apologized if the food did not meet your expecatations which is contrary to the majority of the reviews. For the information of the reading public, we have a group of about 30 customers from Quebec who come to Encoreregularly just to have a feast of our famous 12 oz Ribeye Steak. I can't dispute your review, but at the same time, I can't ignore the good comments from our other customers. As for the singer, Armi Grano, the public should be able to judge her performance via the other rave reviews.

“Nice location, good music, food a touch weak”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2012

Enjoyed our meal there, though no music that day. Food isn't bad, perfectly acceptable, but by SF Bay Area standards merely average.

“A surprising evening of top-rate jazz!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

As we walked through Bucerias one afternoon, I saw a sign advertising "live jazz" and went to speak with one of the waiters, who told us of a jazz singer who had purchased the restaurant fairly recently and would be singing during the dinner hour most evenings. We went back a few nights later for drinks and had the opportunity to hear Arni singing with a keyboard player -- although as the season gets busier, she tells me she will have a full trio in most evenings. Arni is from Vancouver and I discovered that we knew a number of the same jazz vocalists from the Pacific Northwest -- as soon as she mentioned the names, I knew she'd been hanging around in good company and we would be in for a treat! I know -- there will be a lot of folks who are down in Mexico looking forward to hearing mariachi music; however, if you fancy listening to a top rate jazz vocalist in a warm and intimate venue near the beach, this is the place to be! Alas, I can't comment on the food, but the drinks and entertainment were first rate!

Thank you for the review. Armi Grano wishes to thank you personally. She remembers you and all the musicians you both knew in the Pacific Northwest. We hope to see you again and maybe stay for dinner next time.
