Great ambiance, beautiful building, great service, and excellent food. The only thing that takes away from it is the location. Even though is close to the border, it is not exactly in a great place.

This restaurant was a pleasant surprise. We parked in Nogales, Arizona, and walked across the border for good food, excellent service, and a unique architecture and interior. There were nine in our party and no one had any complaints. I had the bacon wrapped shrimp; it was delicious, but what's not to like about any dish with bacon. Make sure... More

"La Roca" is one of the best Restaurants of Mexican food in Heroica Nogales, Classic Antojitos Mexicanos are the best, The Restaurant have a romantic low light and during the night have "Trio" live music. The Con it's a little expensive so check the prices in USD before order something.

La Roca continues to serve the absolute very best food in Nogales. If you want fine dining at very reasonable prices, this is a "must visit" restaurant. The staff are very professional, speak Spanish and English, will explain any dish on the menu, make suggestions, and time the servings perfectly. In addition there is often a guitar soloist or group... More
