We visited twice this year having previously been there two years ago. On both occasions we went for dinner, the first being inside as the weather was cloudy but the second time we went for the six o'clock pre-sunset dinner on the outside terrace which was perfect in every way. The food as per usual was exceptional and the waiter... More

We booked a table in advance and were seated at a front table on the open air terrace. The sunset was gorgeous so book for early evening and don't miss it! Our meal was very good, the service maybe slightly slow but there was an excellent singer / guitarist entertaining us all evening, so we were happy to sit and... More

Arranged by local friend well before we left UK in order to get the best table! Amazing views and great food and wines. Service to table was also excellent and for the location and quality of food this was great value for money.

Go for lunch or arrive early for dinner to ensure you see the view / sunset. They have a great outdoor terrace for when the weather is good and a great indoor dining room if the weather is bad. After an initial delay in service, our waiter was very friendly and enthusiastic. The bread and butter were fresh though the... More

We had a great time at Roca - first thing that hits you is the great view - well worth going on a sunny day and sitting on the outside patio area where the covering above allows a small amount of sun through while providing enough shade. We had a mix of meals - all exceptional. The Mozambican deboned chicken... More

Great value too. As we went in the evening we couldn't see the views but if you get chance go for lunch... More
