Description: Cafe Roka emphasizes quality food using local ingredients when possible...
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.

One the best. Worth the wait. We have been going there since 1993, when they opened.We travel to Bisbee three to four times a year and Cafe Roka is one spot we always go back to.

Nice environment where anyone can be comfortable. Good food. We liked everything except for our soup which was watery. Our waiter was very inappropriate in physically touching me even when ASKED to please not do that.

Still and always the best restaurant in southern Arizona... richly deserves all the accolades and ratings it has gathered over the years... Rod Kass still makes the most awesome duck I've had. And his apps seem to just invite you drink another glass of wine from his world class selection...

Beyond great. Proprietor/chef is a master and gives personal attention, meat usually local or NZ grass-fed, presentation is beautiful without pretense. Building from early-day Bisbee and has kept its high tin ceilings. A MUST when you visit Bisbee.

My husband and I went to Bisbee for the afternoon, and decided to celebrate at Cafe Roka. We had made reservations, and told them it was our 35th wedding anniversary. From the very first they made us feel special - from the personal greeting at the front door, to the special pre-appetizer, fabulous racks of lamb, and gratis chocolate cake... More

I had the pork. It was akin to a religious epiphany. Whatever they are paying the chef, he's probably worth a lot more.

This is by far my very favorite restaurant in town! The food is sublime and you only have to think it and the staff provides it! I am gluten free and dairy free and Chef Rod has no problem taking care of my needs. This is my favorite place for birthday and anniversary dinners. If you haven't been it's a... More

We had excellent service here. Each time we have been here, the food has been delicious. each meal that has come as a large appetizer, entree and desert have been next to perfect for our pallet, making our experience each time there very enjoyable. We get excellent service at the bar, meet interesting people along the way, and overall have... More
