“A great place ran by great people”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013 via mobile

My family & I have visited La Roca twice in the past week, the first time for food & today for a drink (albeit the missus had tapas while waiting for us!)

Ran by a lovely couple, La Roca is great value for money & the food and sangria is first class. I would recommend La Roca to anyone.

Keep up the great work & we'll see you again soon!

“Second visit & just as good, if not better!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

My husband and I returned to Scarborough again this year for his birthday. As soon as we had dropped off our bags at our hotel we made a beeline for La Roca as we had enjoyed it so much last year. The welcome, food & service was as good as we remembered, especially the chorizo & prawn skewers, & the meatballs, just delicious, & due to all the positive comments about the sangria, we decided to give that a bash too, it was lovely, in fact, we had 2 jugs!!? Unfortunately La Roca is still unable to serve food & drink after 6pm, this is such a shame, as its a perfect venue to spend an evening, especially with the terrace at the rear of the property, it gives a distinctly continental feel!!? We'll DEFINITELY be back next year. I can't recommend this little gem of a place highly enough ❤

“Great value!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013 via mobile

We visited this smashing little place for lunch and loved it! We tried a selection of the tapas, including the meatballs (really tasty), chicken & chickpea stew, patatas bravas, anchovies and a couple more, and thoroughly enjoyed everything. Portions are generous & very reasonably priced; the bill for three of us was under £25, including a glass of wine & a couple of San Miguels! This is a much needed variation from the standard cafe fayre available near Scarborough sea front... Good luck to the owners & we hope you are granted the license to open later in the evenings! We'll be back soon :-)
