Cafe Roka emphasizes quality food using local ingredients when possible, attractively presented with friendly and attentive service in a welcoming environment. During our 22 years in business we have noted the changing eating preferences of the public, and that has driven us to find new ways to prepare and serve dishes that are interesting, savory, healthy, local, and affordable. Owner/Chef Rod Kass combines elements of Vegetarian, California and Italian cuisines, forging a uniquely personal style of cooking that is pleasing to the eye as well satisfying to the palate. Full dinner, light appetizers, a glass of wine or desserts, we welcome you. We feature a full bar with jazz on Friday nights. Reservations (at the bar also) suggested to get the time and date you would like. We also are an integral part of the Bisbee community and the region, supporting local groups whenever we can.

My husband and I planned a trip to Bisbee for our 10 year Wedding Anniversary. While researching the town, this restaurant immediately popped up on my radar from the amazing reviews. I really wanted to have a special night so I made sure to call and make reservations. I left a voicemail and had a return phone call the next... More

We ate at Café Roka for the first time, and LOVED it. Everything was amazing, we kept saying we wish we had a place like it near our home. What a treat!

We have eaten at Café Roka many times and will continue to eat there whenever we are in Bisbee. The food is delicious and the staff are helpful and friendly.

At the risk of belaboring the obvious, this is the best restr in town, elegant, eclectic, fun, where people go to have a good time. I'm kind of surprised Bisbee has no second elegant, hip, happening nocturnal place to go to. There are certainly other good places to eat in town, yet there is a big dropoff after CR. Isn't... More

Had dinner weekend of the 10th of July. Reviews had all been so great we were looking forward to it. Unfortunately we found the whole experience underwhelming and honestly disappointing.service was really so so and not very attentive. The meal while visually very attractive was just not that special. I had short ribs that were dry and overcooked. My wife... More

Brought family visiting from the other side of the country who had heard rave reviews about this special place. Loved the artwork, the service, every course, and the great care our server took with us. Lovely ambiance! Thanks for being here in our little out of the way part of the world. First Class with a touch of Bisbee funk!

We stopped going to the Roka just for special occasions... the atmosphere, the service, the local support and the FOOD... just enough to keep us going often.

We have dined in Manhattan, Budapest, Rome, London and on. This place is the equal of anywhere we have been and any meal we have had. Be prepared to enjoy a multi course experience, this is not a grab and go place. Dinner should take 90 minutes to 2 hours. We had 3 courses, my wife is small eater, a... More

Cafe Roka is our go to spot for special occasions because the food is just amazing. We were served a curry soup, salad with creamy basil dressing, lime sorbet and then our entrees. We both got the specials: steak and garlic mashed potatoes and sea bass with shrimp on a bed of lobster ravioli. The presentation is a food art... More
