I've eaten here a handful of times over the years, and have yet to be disappointed. They always whip up something vegan and amazing for me, and the drinks are perfect. My husband eats meat and has never had anything shy of just about perfect- it's our go-to for splashy spendy birthday dinners.

Reservations highly recommended. If they are not too busy you may be able to get in early but it is best to not expect it. You can count on your reserved table being ready at the time you requested. The staff works well together and pleasantly help each other to make their guest want for nothing. The menu has several... More

Do not stay in Bisbee with out dining at this Super restaurant. Cafe Roka opens at 5 p.m. but will accept reservations earlier through their voicemail. Make a reservations because they will fill up, especially on the weekends. We ordered both specials offered that night. The rack of lamb was ideally cooked medium rare is requested and had 8, count... More

Food and service were excellent . The prices are totally decent for a four (4) course menu. You need absolutely a reservation or you might not get in.The menu is very short which is usually a good sign for quality and fresh ingredients.

We had dinner at the bar and really enjoyed interacting with the bartender, Paul. The wine was excellent and the dinner was perfect. We each got one of the daily specials and they filet was cooked to perfection. You get soup, salad, sorbet and then your entre'. All of it was very good.

We were lucky to be able to have dinner at Cafe Roka. It's not open every day. Everything we had was divine - tasty and fresh. But be aware there aren't many veggie options.

Not sure what you mean by not many veggie options...we usually have two vegetarian entrees on our 9-10 item menu. And sides of mixed vegetables accompany all entrees. We encourage guests to ask their server about specific dietary needs (it is noted on the menu), because our kitchen can usually prepare a tasty dish satisfying your needs. More

They have earned all of the accolades for good reasons....... The ONLY fine dining restaurant in Cochise County.....everyone else has gone out of business except for Roka. It is because they know what they are doing and they care about what they cook and serve. Period. Open usually Friday - Sunday and sometimes in between depending on the season of... More

Thank you for your review. A couple of points you made that need explanation. Our hours are posted on our website, facebook page, on our phone message and physically on our window, there is some variance depending on the season. Currently we are open Thursday through Sunday. This is the first time in 23 years we've had a comment about... More

Had a wonderful dinner at Cafe Roka last week. Our group had just arrived in Bisbee, were all tired and not very hungry, but were scheduled to meet up with a local friend of one of our group there. We all had gourmet meals and were pleasantly surprised at the very reasonable charges. Service was excellent and the ambiance was... More
