Had breakfast here. Grandkids loved the smoothies, waffles and pancakes. Adult meals were filling and well priced. Service staff were attentive and entertaining. Nice experience!

Stopped in for their Monday Pasta night. All was great. The pasta was wonderful and the flavours were spot on. The service and surroundings were also very good. The owner came around to talk and make sure we were taken care of. Bottom line all was just perfect. Hope to see you there. Dr.Rico Canada

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 you off if there are no breezes and sticky weather. Their breakfast choices are fairly... More

They have a lovely courtyard setting and live jazz music every evening. The staff were very good. My meal was coconut shrimp with rice and veggies and my husband had pork all of which was good. We shared an appetizer of a pork spring roll with dipping sauce that was excellent.

Evening dinner here was enjoyable. The first greeting of the elegant "maitre d'" made us feel comfortable right away. Service was very good and quick. Entertainment was great jazz if that's your interest with the owner/singer being the star. Food for the three of us was "good" but found the curry chicken a bit wanting. Worth trying different menu items... More

Had dinner here with my sister. The lady who seats the customers was awesome, friendly and funny. The food was good and the prices reasonable. They also had a jazz band performing which was nice, the lady singing owns the restaurant. I would definitely go again.

I visited Encore Restaurant for dinner during mid-March 2017 and had a great evening. We were a table of three and enjoyed wine, appetizers (calamari, guacamole), entrees (pork chop, which was massive), chicken with a creamy curry sauce, and the fish special) and a shared dessert.The food was well prepared and the portions were generous. Service was excellent, and the... More

We went for a quiet evening out and enjoyed this courtyard dining complete with jazz singer. We had an appetizers of pork spring rolls that was very good, followed by coconut shrimp , rice and fresh veggies. All was very good and served well. Staff were friendly.

Nice atmosphere, great music, but relegated to plastic tablecloths and poor service when we said we were only having drinks, not dinner. Dinner guests were seated at tables with cloth tablecloths and good seats near the band. When i commented on Facebook on the poor seating and service for drinks only, i received a comment from the proprietor that we... More

Thank you and I'm sure other restaurants will welcome you. We don't charge music cover for our customers to watch the show, but we expect them to spend by way of buying dinners and drinks so we can pay the musicians. It's a small restaurant and we only have a few tables to accommodate the diners. If we have a... More

Visited Encore 5 years ago and it was on our bucket list for this year's trip to Puerto Vallarta. Every bit as good as it was 5 years ago. Coconut shrimp were amazing and very well priced. Jazz music was so soothing and relaxing and Armi's personable interaction with us was the icing on the cake! You feel like you've... More
