Took my wife and her mother out for dinner. Our server was great and the food was very good. We shared 3 different types of tacos the chicken, shrimp and avocado all were very tasty. This is on of our new favourite place to enjoy.

I was very disappointed in the set-up of the restaurant. I am in a wheelchair and the only tables my height were in the back of the restaurant and were being used for a party so my friends and I could only dine for a limited amount of time. I am not sure why they didn't offer to put a table my height elsewhere in the restaurant so my friends and I could enjoy our evening. We were all very disappointed about this and will not be returning. Not very wheelchair friendly if you can't accomodate your patrons.

Food was okay but overpriced. We booked weeks in advance as we were a a party of 6, they sat us at a table that would comfortably seat 4. My boyfriend and I shared a few appetizers and he had to eat with a plate on his lap becuae there was no room on the table. More than likely will not return or reccomend.

The only drawback was having to settle 3 different times - once at bar, after dinner, and then every time drinks ordered. DJ’s were awesome!

Great overall experience. Wish the margherita drinks would have been served in a larger glass - the price is too high for an eight ounce regular bar glass. The wine was very good, however that too, should have been served in an appropriate stemmed glass, rather than the usual bar glass.

Just had my birthday at La Roca and it was wonderful. Kim was our server and was really amazing. Very attentive, friendly, and also knew the menu very well which is great considering my step daughter has celiac. Unless you are familiar with the disorder people don’t realize how important knowing the ingredients of certain dishes on the menu are. Food was excellent!

Went to La Roca before the Jets game the other night with a group of friends and I have to say they out-did themselves! This was my second time there and was once again pleased. My wife has a gluten allergy and the staff were very helpful at suggesting options. So great to have a place like this downtown Winnipeg.

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.
