ROCA Black Original Logo Transparent Background.png

From the award-winning team that brought you King of Snake, ROCA is located upstairs at The Terrace overlooking the Ōtākaro/Avon River.

At ROCA we believe New Zealand is home to some of the finest produce in the world. We source ingredients from local growers who are committed to being the very best.

Our Cuisine is inspired by our love for the flavours of the Mediterranean. From Spain to the Middle East, ROCA is a contemporary tribute cooked with fire and smoke.
