During our recent travels to Sydney, Australia on Thanksgiving week, we went to Encasa restaurant on Pitt Street twice and both times we enjoyed our food. The portion size was good as was the quality. The dessert that was recommended to us was awesome. All in all, this restaurant offers good food, ambiance and excellent service. I would highly recommend... More

Our server was from Barcelona. We had papas bravas (potatoes in a spicy sauce) grilled octopus, giant prawns, lamb skewers and grilled sausage with beers from Spain. Seems to be a popular spot with locals and busy at lunch. Has a wood fired oven at the front where pizzas and breads were baking. Initially were offered the worst table even... More

The food wasn't bad, and that's the good part! The noise in the back dining area where we were seated was incredible. Not just loud, but deafening! Our group literally had to yell across the table just to be heard. The service was polite and friendly but agonisingly slow. And to my way of thinking, good tapas should be layered,... More

We were in Sydney staying at nearby accommodation. Decided to give some Spanish cuisine a go and went to Encasa (Pitt St Spanish Restaurant). We were here once before, but I never reviewed it. The service is excellent and the food will have your taste buds wanting more. It was that enjoyable, that we came back the next night to... More

A group of us visited Encasa for dinner. We had arranged a fixed menu of tapas. Firstly the environment was great and restaurant was very busy indicating its popularity- always a good sign. Wonderful drinks list with lots of Spanish labels and of course sangria. The tapas servings were abundant, tasty, and authentic. A really enjoyable evening with great service.... More

We found the restaurant on TA and sought it out for a good evening meal and something different. Unfortunately it was the weekend and the place was rammed with some big groups as well. So our host told us to go away for a half an hour and he would see what he could do - only needed a table... More

We walked in off the street on a me week night. Our order included a bit of everything as we wanted to try so much. The prawns were delicious, pizza was tasty and the salad was fresh and crunchy. Staff were friendly and casual.

We visited the place for a pre-theatre dinner with a group of 7 and really enjoyed the ambiance and food. The place has the feel of a busy Spanish restaurant which you can find in any of the major cities of Spain. Several of the staff are Spanish and this of course helps to create this atmosphere. The menu has... More
