We visited here in July and loved the meal we had, so we returned this weekend. I was hoping to sit outside again, so I was a bit disappointed to be seated inside. It didn't matter, because the meal was delicious, once again. The atmosphere inside proved to be quite pleasant as well. Be sure to get the house salad,... More

We love the bistro roca and try to get a table anytime we visit blowing rock. You really do need a reservation to get a seat as it is very popular. They have several types of mac and cheese and all are delicious. The cuban crepe is to die for. Excellent service and atmosphere.

After a long day, we were tired and hungry. Bistro Roca was just the right place to rest and refuel (food and drinks that is). Drinks were top quality and the food outstanding. Decor was tastefully done throughout the restaurant. We will definitely be happy to visit again.

Had a very nice dining experience in Blowing Rock after a rigorous hike in Linville Gorge. With no lunch and an exhausting hike, we were beyond HONGRY. This is my sisters' favorite dining spot in the area (she's a part time resident). I had mountain trout and my husband had a ribeye. The trout was excellent. His ribeye was good,... More

Bistro Roca is one of the better restaurants in Blowing Rock for lunch or dinner. The chef does wonders with anything pork... His menus are well thought out and flavor profiles are as well. I eat lunch here once a week and dinner occasionally. A must if you are in town for any period of time. If I had to... More

I'm never disappointed when I enjoy dinner at Bistro Roca. The service is friendly and quick. The menu varied and interesting. The food is prepared and presented expertly. Try the house salad and pizza, you won't be disappointed either!

Really loved this place. Great food, atmosphere, and staff. The Halibut was perfect. Will be back, often. Save room for desert.

My family recently ate at Bistro Roca and truly enjoyed our meal. We sat on the back enclosed patio. It was a cool foggy evening and all the windows were open and the atmosphere was delightful. Our server was very helpful in suggesting menu items and also in checking with the kitchen about menu items for my daughter who has... More

Had lunch there on a whim just driving by. We saw so many good things on the menu we returned for dinner. Cuban crepes for lunch and the pork steak for dinner. Best meal I've had in months. Very nice ambiance inside, like a private club.
