Encasa is a beautiful restaurant; you pretty much always need a reservation to get a table. The food really is fantastic, and the atmosphere is cosy yet bubbly. We recommend it, definitely!

mMm No one can refuse a jug of sangria. Personally i prefer sangria to be a little bit on the sweet side, but this one was a little bitter rather than a refreshing hit.

This was pleasant, but not overwhelmingly amazing that I wanted to drink glass after glass of. I personally prefer the one from Winery but then again that one is more fruity and has less alcohol(?).

Gambas al Ajillo; Peeled king prawns in sizzling garlic oil and chilli

Prawns and garlic. Can anyone resist?

Patatas Bravas; Fried potato w/ garlic mayo and spicy tomato salsa

A MUST for anyone to get when they go to Encasa. It could not be any more perfect!
The potatoes were perfectly seasoned with a crispy texture.

Vieiras en Azafran; Scallops in the shell with saffron, shallots and cream

MmmMm this was delicious as well. The sauce was AMAZING. Wouldn’t mind having another one…or two…or three..again.

The cheese complements the chewiness of the scallops excellently and the fun part was to suck the left over cheese out of the shells. 

Paella Valenciana; Saffron rice with chicken and seafood

I have to say i’m not really that big of a fan of paella, although it could be considered as the highlight of the meal. I would much rather prefer to have more of the smaller tapas dishes, than fill up on this. Looks amazing though.

The burnt rice at the bottom was good, and the taste of the seafood did manage to absorb into the rice. I thought this was a perfect complementary dish for salty tapas. So i strongly recommend not to have this one on its own..

The sangria looks like a dream. I actually prefer slightly bitter sangria with sweet undertones so I would've been all over it.
