“Lovely food and friendly staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 August 2011

Went for lunch here and had a lovely meal. It's a busy restaurant, but we were served in good time and the staff were attentive. Pasta dishes were fantastic, with generous portions. Good quality. Seating outside overlooking the square and barges too, if the weather's good.

“The Encore - exactly. You will want to return.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 July 2011

visited the encore for my daughters birthday at her request which was the second time. As ever the service was great even though it was a busy saturday. The food took a little longer than would want at 40 mins but the result was worth the wait - it was saturday after all. The upside is that it is a great location for people watching. Value was good.

Well worth a visit if your in town.

“Average food, below average service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 July 2011

Nice riverside location, but very slow & unattentive service with bland food.

Very overpriced for what it is. Will not be returning.

“Overpriced , over rated”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 July 2011

The food was standard but the prices were extreme, they really are milking the tourist trade with just standard food, we found better priced and better food else where in the town, very disappointing

“GREAT FOOD, GREAT STAFF, GREAT ATMOSPHERE AND RIVER VIEWS”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 June 2011

Six of us ate there last Sunday June 19th. It was lovely. The staff make you feel welcome as soon as you walk through the door. The theme is the wild west. Sheepskin and leather all over the place. The walls, the seats even the staff wear leather aprons. Try and get a table upstairs, that is where the river view seats are. They have a range of dishes to choose from so everyone will be catered for. From homemade pizzas, steaks, fish. We ordered a variety of mains. All arrived piping hot, the meals are all made to order. I had the prawn, avocado salad with pecan nuts and a lovely dressing, very tasty. I would have no problem recommending this restaurant. You'll the buzz of it as well as the food.
Look out for the alcoholic hot chocolate yum yum yum !
