As always, does not disappoint. The extra few dollars are well spent to escalate your dining experience well above the mostly OK but ordinary dining experiences in this city.
The two or three course menus are well priced, the food delicious, and as described on...the menu.
Service is prompt, friendly and efficient, and the waiters are generally knowledgeable regarding details of dishes on offer.
A fine dining experience too good to leave for special occasions.More
We had dinner at Encores. The setting is classy, the staff professional, and the food is excellent.
The menu is quite small, with four each of starters, mains and dessert. The four dishes we tried were all excellent, generously sized, beautifully presented, and very tasty...with some original tweaks on classic combinations.
The wine list is interesting, with a good selection by the glass.
All in all, big city fine dining at regional city pricesMore
Serves were very small and just average quality. Enter and main was $60 that was $10 for the entree and $50 for the main. There was a big cockroach running around under our table but the waiter stood on it. Would not go back again.More

Thanks for your review and sorry we couldn’t meet your standards expected however $70 for three course meal including a complimentary starter and house bread we don’t feel is poor value.
Unfortunately we couldn’t meet your request on the night to sit on the open...More
Hard not to like the place although I imagine on a show night it gets busy.
Food was a good selection and everything we ate we enjoyed, service was very good.
Price was reasonable. Booking would be near essential at the moment.
The food is always amazing at Encores but they really excelled for the Valentines Day degustation. The food was superb and the service excellent with great matching wines.
The ambiance is lovely with the full length glass windows that open out to the beautiful garden...and a view of the two churches.
Whether it’s lunch or dinner, do yourself a favour and go to Encores.More
What a lovely dining experience! Trip Advisor reviews sent us here...and we couldn’t be happier.
Welcoming and calm, despite some large groups, the manager was on her game!
Elegant service, knowledgeable and food to back it up!
All standouts but corn and basil soup with...harissa prawn garnish 10/10!
Steaks were tender and perfectly cooked.
We hope for an encore performance very soon! Thanks Meredith!More
Absolutely love this restaurant! Have been going to this restaurant for many years and for many different occasions. The food is delicious and the service is always on point! Do yourself a favour, you won’t regret it.

Thanks for your great review and your continued support it’s much appreciated.
Sorry, just picked this up (probably not a lot of help now!), but smart casual is the go here. Meaning jeans are ok, but you need a collared shirt, dress shoes and if winter, a sports jacket wouldn't be out of place. The... More
Sorry, just picked this up (probably not a lot of help now!), but smart casual is the go here. Meaning jeans are ok, but you need a collared shirt, dress shoes and if winter, a sports jacket wouldn't be out of place. The ladies won't need my input here...
