By far the best restaurant in Bisbee and one of the top in Southern Arizona! Great food, prepared with love by Chef Raul and often featuring excellent live music. Reservations are a must, but you can walk in and get seated and served at the bar most nights. Always a good dining experience!

This is THE place to eat dinner, but you NEED reservations. Make your reservations way in advance if you are planning on dinner during a holiday or weekend. Great food, great value, great location.

This was a recommendation from a friend and we are happy we made the visit. We told them ahead of time that we are vegan and we were truly impressed with the special meal that was made for us. We started with a tomato salad with a pesto balsamic reduction. The main course was a medley of vegetables along with... More

This is the best roast duck I have ever tasted. The service is wonderful and the atmosphere is very continental. There are ample portions and the price is reasonable. I would not have expected a restaurant of this quality in an out of the way place like Bisbee, AZ

We have been going to Cafe Roka for close to 20 years...even including the first location. That in itself should tell you something. The chef (Rod) has stayed on top of shifting trends and changes in pallet/taste throughout that time and updates menus accordingly. Like someone else said....we save this Roka for special occasions. It unquestionably is, and is known... More

I save Cafe Roka for special occasions, not that you have to. I ate here most recently for my 50th birthday and I really enjoyed the food, my companions and the restaurant staff. It was wonderful. We ate, drank and celebrated for hours and the waitress never got that look in her eye that said "would they just leave, please..."... More

Although the dinners started with a soup, lentil and black bean, that was ok, the salad was delicious (for a non-salad lover, that's a lot to say) . I went for the special, a beef dish which I ordered rare ( perfect) and I was pleasantly surprised. Every sauce was tasty and the portion was huge. I was offered a... More

After a day of touring the mine museum, exploring the mine and walking Bisbee's ghost tour we were delighted with our dinner here. Our reservation for 8:30 was the latest one they would accept and we were the last table in the restaurant. But there was no undercurrent of resentment for keeping them there - it was a Saturday anyway,... More
