We celebrated the fiftieth birthday of a good frond of mine today at Roca. Five of us from klein ones ( children ) to us three adults. We go back way when. So when we arrived they had our table laid out, in the right...place and awaiting our attendance. Our food choices were divergent. Pasta to beef fillet, mushrooms to soup but all flowed superbly. Service was exemplary, cuisine in exceptional proportions. Well done Roca for allowing us to celebrate Gavin's fiftieth birthday in unique style while you sorted the flow of food, fun and fantasy......More

Quite disappointed. Number of items on the menu not available. Service was very average and left us waiting ages to order and receive drinks. Five of the members of our party had ordered the deboned chicken, which when arrived was not deboned and the fries...were completely stale (all 4 of them). Over priced and average quality for that premium price. On a separate note, the house wine is marked up 300% from the tasting room 30m away - I understand a mark up but quite ridiculous given the context. Raised everything with the manager and was blamed on only 2 chefs in the kitchen (I get it but then just explain to us the situation to manage out expectations). To be honest the manager handled well and provided an unnecessary discount which was very appreciated, but would definitely not recommend.More

I honestly have not seen a more beautiful place with amazing views. We watched the sunset and then went upstairs for dinner. Be prepared to pay quite a lot for dinner and drinks. However, it was so beautiful that it felt worth it. We had...lamb shank and I cannot complain. Delicious! The waiters were extremely friendly and accommodating when we wanted to move to a different spot. Definitely worth the visit.More
