Bistro Roca is always a favorite for lunch or dinner. The menu had just been changed which they seem to do seasonally. My roasted red pepper & bacon salad topped with salmon (extra) was fabulous. Although the salad was huge, the salmon was a little small. My friend had the open faced salmon salad which she said was delicious.

My husband and 11 month old visited here while vacationing in Blowing Rock. Of all the restaurants we tried this week, this was our favorite. My husband had one of the wood fired pizzas and I had the lobster Mac and cheese. Both were delicious. Our waiter was friendly and accommodating. But our favorite part of the experience was the decor and ambience - I could have stayed a while for another drink or dessert, if not for a wiggly baby!

The weather was terrible -- foggy and rainy and couldn't see well to drive -- so we went early and got pizza to go to bring back to the inn. Pizza was very good, thin crust, great quality and tasty. Yum!

We thoroughly enjoyed our evening with three other couples from Charlotte to celebrate two of the guys birthdays. The food was excellent. I had the wood-fired pizza and it was delicious. And I remember some of the folks had the salmon and loved it. However, what made the evening most exceptional was our server, Stephen. I wish I knew Stephen's last name. But, he was absolutely excellent. He gave great suggestions, provided the perfect amount of being engaging with all of us without being intrusive. He was really special. Thank you Stephen and Bistro Roca for a very nice evening.

A very fine dining establishment. The menu was solid across all the main food groups. The bourbon rib eye was fabulous as was the (special of the day) grilled grouper. Service was attentive and always timely.

I liked the interior. It didn't sacrifice it's "mountain roots" to have a modern feel.

Directions via gps are discouraging and place was hard to find. Reservation appear to be a must. Parking is at a premium. Enclosed back porch is very nice.

You'll feel good and eat well here.
