“Excellent cuisine”
Reviewed February 25, 2014

Well worth the 30 mile drive to and from Tombstone. What a surprise to find a restaurant in Bisbee offering a daily special of sea bass and scallops that were cooked to perfection and delicious. My husband ordered the lamb meatballs served with interesting sauces that he thoroughly enjoyed. The prices are very reasonable for such excellent cuisine. The main course includes a small bowl of soup, a small salad and a tiny palate cleansing sorbet. Compliments to the chef for his culinary skills performed in a tiny, cramped kitchen area - VERY impressive!. This restaurant also offers a pleasant atmosphere and a full service bar with an extensive cocktail menu.

“Pricey and just okay”
Reviewed February 24, 2014

3 course dinner included one soup (bean the night we were there and we are not fond of bean soup), sorbet (tiny cup; hardly considered a course). I was hoping for a nice steak but the only steak they had was sirloin. Okay, normally, but at these prices, I'd expect Filet Mignon.

“JEWEL IN BISBEE”
Reviewed February 23, 2014

We stayed a week in Bisbee and passed this place each time we left the house. We got there early, thank goodness, because it filled up quickly. Can't say enough about how wonderful this place was. The ambiance, service and food were exellent. I had the Gulf Shrimp appitizer and Salmon. One of the best meals I have ever eaten. Don't remember what my husband had but he enjoyed it. Not many people even know where Bisbee, AZ is bu, if you ever get a chance to go there, be sure you go to Cafe Roka. You will not be disappointed.

“Great Place for a Special Meal”
Reviewed February 23, 2014

I'm not enough of a foodie to typically want to spend $100 on a meal for two, but my partner and I treated ourselves while in Bisbee. Cafe Roka was recommended as the best restaurant in town, and it didn't disappoint. The atmosphere is inviting but not overly formal, and the service was exceptional. Each entree comes with three preliminary courses--a small soup, small salad, and sorbet--and each was delicious. The ordered the grilled sea bass special, which was also perfectly prepared. The value will depend on your taste and expectations, but for us it was worth the price. Be sure to make reservations. The place fills up quickly.

“Dinner for 4 at Cafe Roka”
Reviewed February 16, 2014

Cafe Roka is open from Wednesday to Saturday, and reservations are a must, as it has been discovered by both locals and tourists. We were there on Wednesday night, and by 8 PM it was 100% full. We each had different entrees and all we're excellent..great service and a super wine selection that is reasonably priced. Dinner includes soup, salad and palate cleanser pre-entree. This is the place to dine in Bisbee.
