We were walking to bucerias and stopped in at encore. They staff welcomed us with open arms. And the owner was there and talked to us as well. When we sat down, they turned the fan right on us, which was nice. They explained everything on the menu very well, and were very attentive. Antonio talked to us quite a... More

It is always great when you get something else for your money besides excellent food, try the great live Jazz at Encore. Dinner is our favorite here but we have enjoyed breakfast and lunch as well. You will not find a friendlier or more efficient staff, from the front door through to the kitchen, just kick back and enjoy. Ps... More

The food as well as service are excellent. This restaurant is open for breakfast ,lunch and dinner. Prices are good. Entertainment is enjoyable. Owner and staff remember your favourites from year to year. Tables set in garden atmosphere, really authentic Mexico.

Let me start by saying the owner and main table host were the most friendly in our whole trip this year. This restaurant participated in the best tortilla soup in all of Bucerias quest I had this year. Their soup was also very good but not the best. They did have something which maybe the best in all the world.... More

We went to the Encore twice. The music and atmosphere is what attracted us to the place. The service was good and the staff more than pleasant. The singer is excellent and very friendly, making a point of chatting with most of the diners there. The food is good too, not great, but good and I would suggest ordering the... More

The food was OKAY and the waiter was good but the greeter in front was very rude to me as a handicapped person. I suggested that maybe they could make some ramps so that handicapped people could get into their restaurant. He told me that they weren't interested in the handicapped eating there.

Poorest restaurant in Bucerias. We made reservations for the Easter Sunday dinner a week in advance & were asked at the time of the reservation if we preferred a turkey dinner or lamb. We arrive at 7:00 pm to eat. They served the salad and returned to tell us there was no turkey left. We were overcharged by having to... More

CasaA, Owner at Encore Restaurant & Lounge, responded to this review

We apologized for the incident. We were overbooked for the turkey and as a result, some reservations were fulfilled and some were not. The best that we could do under the situation is to substitute some items for the turkey. You are aware that the kitchen can not just whip up a turkey in 20 minutes. As an alternative, we... More
