Bistro Roca is perfection, from the setting to the service do not miss this restaurant! Bailey was our server and was attentive and polite and had great suggestions. My husband had the black and blue ribeye, I had the cuban crepe and both were wonderful.

Very hospitable atmosphere with varied menu, full bar and fair beer selections. Food has always been well prepared and service attentive. Its a little hard to find but well worth the effort in Blowing Rock. Try the roasted figs with manchengo cheese.

Dropped in for an early dinner. The prosciutto wrapped fig appetizer was AWESOME, as was the pizza. For us, the wine list was extremely limited and the noise level unbearable for this baby boomer. Would not return personally, but if you are into "high energy",...More
