When for a lunch with my husband and his parents, it was perfect. Great food, great service. Returned 2 days later for breakfast! Unfortunately, didn't have a chance to go in the evening and see the show.

Curious about the Jazz Restaurant and certainly was not disappointed. The meals were delicious, the hostess was so very friendly, and the live music by Armi and Paul was really enjoyable. Will definitely go back when in Bucerias again.

We had breakfast at Encore other years as well as this year on our visit to Bucerias. Encore is a shady oasis about midway between the kissing bridge into Bucerias and The Decameron Resort. It is calm and relaxing and they have fans to cool...More
