Wow, A fun spot in Bisbee. We had dinner there the Friday after Thanksgiving. The place was packed. I was glad we made reservations are few days ahead of time or we wouldn't have gotten in. The menu satisfied my foodie daughter. And it was well executed. The price made my husband and me happy. The artwork and aesthetics pleased... More

As a former resident of Bisbee, I've eaten at Roka many times over the years. Last night was no exception... it was excellent. From the staff who take you reservation (highly recommended) to the kitchen and service staff, Rod has built a quality restaurant, worth the drive to enjoy!

This place is phenomenal the food was so good. You'll need a reservation as they are busy, but any visit to Bisbee should include a trip to Cafe Roca.

I've eaten here a handful of times over the years, and have yet to be disappointed. They always whip up something vegan and amazing for me, and the drinks are perfect. My husband eats meat and has never had anything shy of just about perfect- it's our go-to for splashy spendy birthday dinners.

Reservations highly recommended. If they are not too busy you may be able to get in early but it is best to not expect it. You can count on your reserved table being ready at the time you requested. The staff works well together and pleasantly help each other to make their guest want for nothing. The menu has several... More

Do not stay in Bisbee with out dining at this Super restaurant. Cafe Roka opens at 5 p.m. but will accept reservations earlier through their voicemail. Make a reservations because they will fill up, especially on the weekends. We ordered both specials offered that night. The rack of lamb was ideally cooked medium rare is requested and had 8, count... More

Food and service were excellent . The prices are totally decent for a four (4) course menu. You need absolutely a reservation or you might not get in.The menu is very short which is usually a good sign for quality and fresh ingredients.

We had dinner at the bar and really enjoyed interacting with the bartender, Paul. The wine was excellent and the dinner was perfect. We each got one of the daily specials and they filet was cooked to perfection. You get soup, salad, sorbet and then your entre'. All of it was very good.

We were lucky to be able to have dinner at Cafe Roka. It's not open every day. Everything we had was divine - tasty and fresh. But be aware there aren't many veggie options.

Not sure what you mean by not many veggie options...we usually have two vegetarian entrees on our 9-10 item menu. And sides of mixed vegetables accompany all entrees. We encourage guests to ask their server about specific dietary needs (it is noted on the menu), because our kitchen can usually prepare a tasty dish satisfying your needs. More
