We started with Calamari, hot, well cooked with sauce. Had coconut shrimps and seafood spaghetti with lots of seafood, both delightful. The Cab. Sav. Is Chilian and good. Negra Modello cold with a frozen glass and lime on the side. Armi was a delight to listen to through her three sets with her three piece band in fine form.

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

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.
