“Third Visit, Still Good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

Each time we have dined at Bistro Roca we have had a good experience. I had the lobster roll and my wife had the Habanero Burger. Both were very good. The Habi sauce is outstanding. Nice warm ambienve. Good service

“Great place for lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

We went to this restaurant while on a visit to the mountains to see the fall colors. The menu had great choices and the food was wonderful. The eggplant fries are delicious and the bison burger and flatbreads are also great.

Always fun to dine at Bistro Roca. When you enter, everyone is having a good time and you will too. Of course, the good food makes it even better.

“Wonderful Brunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

The first time we ate here a year ago, my son declared it was the best he had ever eaten. We returned this year, and although the dishes were very good, the bar was set very high on the first visit. The warm rustic setting is perfect. The coffee, from a Boone beanery, reminds me of my favorite New Orleans blend, and that's high praise. We will return every time we are in this neck of the woods.

“The area's best restaurant!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

If you're looking for a great place to eat in Blowing Rock, look no further. Located just off Main Street, this hidden gem offers a superb, causal lunch or (a bit more) formal dinner. The food, service, and atmosphere is ALWAYS excellent. Jennifer, the manager, is always very pleasant and accommodating. Expect to pay at least $10 per person at lunch or $20 at dinner, but the quality is one of the area's best!
