Group of 6 from work booked here and sent in a pre-order the week before attending. I had been once before, a good few years ago so was keen to try it again, someplace different in Dundee. The pre-theatre menu was 3 courses for £19.95, cheaper than most restaurants in the same area and the food was very tasty and... More

This was absolutely superb, from the time of booking with Amanda to today, Organisation 1st Class. The Service was absolutely spot on and the food, the best we have ever had as a group. Cannot wait to come back. If you are thinking of a Christmas Lunch BOOK NOW you will not be disappointed, congratulations to everyone involved in this... More

We enjoyed a fab three courses at Encore. Liked the quirky decor and friendly welcome. Very nice wines at £4.75 for medium glass. Duck salad, quiche tart starters, lovely beef and white pudding burger....light and fresh. Pork with cranberry and orange stuffing was lovely. Dauphinoise delish. Great desserts. £57.00 with 4 drinks. Very nice.

We are at Encore prior to seeing Frankenstein for my birthday and had a fabulous meal! Great value for money, plenty of choice for a pre theatre menu and the staff were fantastic! We will definately go again

Lunch before a show was excellent. Well trained, friendly, efficient staff and delicious food. I had soup for starter - and although the portion was on the small side it was very tasty indeed. Mains at lunchtime are very reasonably priced. My 'posh sausage' roll was very nice indeed. Strudel was light and very good. All the food was beautifully... More

If you like salad the salad bowl is amazing with nothing missed out, great value for money and very filling to absorb those pre theatre drinks. We went to see The Cheviot, the Stag and the Black Black Oil. Outstanding performance from the cast who reduced the audience to both tears and hysterical laughter and created a very Scottish highland... More

We called in here for the 1st time on Saturday 30th July as our regular pre- threatre venue had an issue with its kitchen.From the moment we received a friendly welcome from the waitress we knew it was a good decision. We had a choice of tables as it was quiet just after 5pm so we made ourselves comfortable.The menu... More
