Cafe Roku is open Thursday-Saturday night and reservations are necessary. It is well worth the effort. The entrees are extraordinary. The staff is warm and professional. My lobster canneloni was great. Reasonable prices too - $11-$20 for entrees which includes soup, salad and sorbet.

“1 of Top Ten Meals of My Life!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2005

Absolutely divine. What a surprise, that this little hole-in-the-wall in Bisbee Arizona competes with my memories of famous Parisien restaurants! The bread was wonderful, flavorful and fresh. We ordered cocktails which were some of the most carefully made mixed drinks I've ever enjoyed, flavorful and warming. The soup (a cold fruit soup, very unique) was enlivening to the palate and relaxing for the mood. Then came arguably the best salad I've ever tasted. A simple mix of greens, very very fresh tasting and thoughtfully mixed topped with a dressing I would never use anything but, if it were available for sale. Next, we were served a sorbet which brought to mind fresh ices in Italy, fruity, light and delightful. For the main course I had a chicken dish with a dark, thick sauce similar to those served in France. The chicken was superb, and the sauce made it memorable and potent on the tongue. My companion had the lasagne, which he impressed me by saying was the best lasagne he had ever had in his life!
Additionally the prices were quite reasonable, our four course meals would have cost us $50-$100 in Tucson for comparable quality (IF we could find it), but were from $17-$20. Highly recommended.

“Memorable Meal. A Bisbee Must!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 29, 2005

Our first night in Bisbee we ate at Cafe Roka. Our meal was delicious. A hip, lively, modern classy restaurant. This is the place in Bisbee for your special meal. We came early at 5pm before it got crowded and got a table for 2. We split the Artichoke Lasagna entree which was rich and filling. Everything was excellent. We particularly liked the beets and asparagus appetizer. Interesting mix of flavors. The service was attentive. Sorry we did not have time to come back another night to listen to the jazz and enjoy the bar. A must if in Bisbee.

“Fantastic Restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 20, 2005

Worth the trip from Phoenix to enjoy the fare at this wonderful restaurant. Make sure you get your reservations in advance because dinner at Cafe Roka is not an experience to be missed. Everything from soup to dessert is carefully prepared and the taste is exceptional. If you do nothing else in Bisbee---make sure you visit Cafe Roka for dinner.
