Everything was terrific. We were greeted with a small esemble playing nice music. Our wait staff was excellent. The soup then small salad and then some lemony sherbet led us to directly to a fabulous entree. My steak was perfectly prepared and the veges served with it were excellent. My wife had a magnificent pasta dish with each bite full of dozens of different complementary flavors. We ended the meal with a flan cake desert. The entire meal was 55 dollars.

We celebrated our 4th anniversary there August 17th and it was amazing. The service was stellar and the meal was one of the best we've ever had. My husband had the lamb while I had the sirloin...unbelievable. It was the nicest anniversary we've had so far. They even treated us to a free dessert...nutella cheesecake...to celebrate. Thank you to the staff for making it so lovely. We will definately be back.

Always professional and remembered as a customer. That is what we like about a place. Great food no matter what you order, from reasonable to expensive, they have the range. The staff has been there a while, they do such a great job! Did I mention ambiance? FANTASTIC!

Really a wonderful dining experience. The restaurant is intimate without being loud. You can hear the other diners but not every word of their conversation. (a few restaurants in Philly could take a note!)
The meal was delicious. I had the fish special, delicate sea bass with just the perfect blend of veggies and light sauce, fabulous. My husband opted for the spicy penne, he loved it as it was flavorful but not overly garlic. Both dishes were spot on for freshness, flavor and value.
Our waiter was Daryl. Certainly a Bisbee ambassador. He was interesting and efficient, getting our dishes to us while the food was still hot and offering, when asked, comments about the town, beer and wine. We appreciated his humor.
In addition, the owner helped us out. Earlier in the day as we attempted to check into our hotel we were locked out. One of the shopkeepers told us the Inn owner worked at Cafe Roka, we went down and the owner was contacted by the chef owner of Cafe Roka. Very helpful and appreciated.
So, all these rave reviews, why only 4 stars? The bread is subpar, white rolls that were cold and not the right kind of chewy. The reservation system is a pain, you leave a message and they call you back. When I call on a Monday for reservations on Thursday, no one calls back because they are only opened Thursday-Sun. Even if you not open check the messages and let people know if they have a reservation. We are tourists, I like to make plans.
Otherwise, this restaurant is not to be missed in the delightful town of Bisbee

I have visited Bisbeen on average 3 times per year for the past 4 years. Each time I make a point of visiting Cafe Roka for at least one dinner. The food and ambience are wonderful. The chef keeps and delivers a delightful menu with variety for every palette.
