For a Mexican specialty restaurant the nacho chips and salsa should be better. Tortilla soup was excellent.

Our waitress was AMAZING! The manager was accommodating ( we had a chefs table gift very and he let us substitute the bottle of wine for two desserts) salad was good, tortilla soup was ok but the tacos and desserts were absolutely to die for. The drinks are overpriced ( 8$ a beer and 11$ for a cocktail!) the salsa and chips were sub par and the burger for burger week was sooooo delicious!

The El Chapo at La Roca made my burger week! Hands down the group favorite!
Just the right amount of heat, but not over powering. Guacamole on a burger is always a win too.
It’s a beef & chorizo patty served on a kaiser bun topped off with homemade guacamole, habanero cucumber sauce, chipotle aioli, Spanish coleslaw, pico de gallo and queso fundido.
And I know it’s burger week, but damn great fries gets it a 6/5!

8 ounce glass of sangria for 11.00 was way over-priced and so disappointing as it was half ice so really felt like 5 ounces. Food average (tacos) as were not hot but only warm. Disappointed couldn't have a variety of taco (3 tacos) with their different fillings for the 'taco platter' as have been able to at other places. Not sure I would return.

The weather was perfect for a night filled with amazing weather, friends, food, drink and can not say enough about the music!!!! The live musician on the patio last night was incredible. Everyone tried different dishes like the trout, fajitas, skinny chicken tacos, quesadillas and more. The food not only looked amazing but the flavours were fresh and delicious and with the added bonus of half off bottles of wine! What more could we have asked for? Thank you once again La Roca staff for outstanding service and giving Winnipeg a top notch Mexican experience.

Hotess was pompous. We requested to be seated on the rooftop in our online reservations booking but were told the patios are never reserved in a rather condescending manner. Wonder why the restaurant didn't contact us about not being able to fulfill our online reservation request. Server/ manager interrupted our conversation incessantly pressuring our table to order (didn't do it to other tables). Food was ok but not great. Price was expensive for quality of food and service offered. Would not recommend.

Sadly, we were quite disappointed. Three ladies out for something different for dinner than the usual chain restaurant . The best part was the chips and salsa served when we were seated. The shandy was to beerish, the guac was to limey and our chicken taquitos and enchiladas were super dry,barely warm and not enough sauce. We all were disappointed especially when it wasn't that busy.

I have company in town this week and la roca has quickly become my favourite place to take people when we are going out. The patio is beautiful and in my opinion the best in the city. Service, drinks, food and atmosphere are all exceptional. My company always has an enjoyable evening and asks to go back when they visit.

My first time experience with this new Mexican dining was very favorable. The food was delicious and expertly prepared and presented. The Tortilla soup was outstanding. I'll definitely return again for it and to explore other signature dishes in the near future. It also had a good value for my money.

We got together for my boyfriends birthday on a Saturday. We had a reservation for 4 of us on the patio and had no problem getting a table. Service was great, waitress was amazing! checked on us very often and kept our beers full:) Food was delicious and we had chips and salsa to start which was nice. Asked the waitress if they gave anything for birthdays and they brought us a stack of Churros and sauces, So good!! Would come again!!
Loved it!!

The food was excellent, the server was cold. She was saying all the right things however came off really annoyed to be there. Example we ordered the churros and I asked if they had whip cream and she was just like “no” and walked away. We probably would have paid for vanilla ice cream or whatever. She was just very brash and could have made our experience soooooo much better by being fun because we were fun and also got a better tip than 10%.

Made a reservation and was seated quickly , with the request of window seat. Cocktail menu was interesting - tried the mexican old fashion (delicious if you enjoy a very strong drink) mexican mule (delicious), and a mojito (also delicious). Shared an appetizer of taquitos and had the fish ceviche for my dinner - it was a winner - i would probably have to order the ceviche every time i go back. This was my second visit, and was just as good as the first time i dined there. Great ambience with dim lighting but tons of natural light from the large window front - very airy and open concept. Service was excellent.
