Description: All Crete has rich, natural Beauty! One of this places is Roka. One impotrant feature of our village is its archelogical history and of course its natural beauty.Three thousand years ago, at the foot of the mountain. King rokkeas had his Kingdom. Until today, there still exist the ruins of his kingdom, which show their ancinet skills in art and wealth of their culture. we live the good life, which includes cooking tasty and traditional food in the old fashioned way. We built the Taverna as a family and we work it as a family. and of course all of our dishes are made using only the old tried and true recipes, resulting in tasty and delicious meals for you - our valued customers.We, your hosts, offer these to you with love.

I visited Roka 4 times in one week with my father. Staff is very friendly and lovely. You can see that this is a family restaurant when you go there. Food is also very good. We ate traditional dishes; kleftiko, stifado, moussaka, souvlaki.. all very tasty and portions are big. You don't leave this place hungry :) Also starters are great. My favorite is tzaziki+ wine leaves, or grilled feta. Summa summarum : Forget those overrated beach restaurants ;)

I had dinner here with my sister few days ago. We have been here in Crete before and visited this restaurant many times that time too. Food is still really nice and staff are awesome. We had super good traditional food and actually we were so overloaded after dinner that we barely could walk out.

Food, price and service - well balanced!

If in search of a genuine Cretan restaurant in Agia Marina you should really visit the Family Taverna Roka. The service is excellent from the second you enter. You feel at home and are well taken care of. The menue is varied, from the classic bekre meze to the modern pizza. Sit down and take in the athmosfare and the complementary mezes.
Rich portions and friendly service. The food is overall delicious, and no one leaves Roka hungry.
Have eaten here almost every night on our one-week family holidays for a periode of ten years, and never walked home hungry or disappointed.
Value for money and a pleasent stay every time! Enjoy!

Agia Marinan rinteellä sijaitseva perheravintola. Leppoisa ilmapiiri, erittäin ystävällinen henkilökunta. Tilasimme menun kahdelle (34e) eli kreikkalainen salaatti, lihapataa eli stifadoa ja heidän omaa punaviiniä. Ruoka oli erittäin maukasta ja sitä oli riittävästi.
Menu for 2 (34 euros),includes the wine bottle. Beef Stifado was very delicious, also the Roka red wine. Pleasant atmosphere and family was very friendly. We enjoyed.

Went here twice with my family during a week in Agia Marina. Immediately fell in love with the staff, the atmosphere, the lovely airy terrace and proper home cooked dishes. This is a taverna run by a family and they treat each and every One of their guests as a VIP and greet you as an old friend. Also got complementary treats! Next time we will go to Agia Marina, we will probably go here every other night :D this place should be your top pick if you enjoy food made with care and a friendly and not at all pushy staff!!
