ROCA Mexican Cantina & Tequila Bar, the Day of the Dead themed restaurant/bar, is a slice of Mexican authenticity in the heart of Coogee. Owner Gerardo transformed the space into a traditional cantina – the bright décor inspired by the celebrated coloured skeletons of the Mexican culture.
The restaurant is all about keeping it local, with a fun and relaxed atmosphere that is familiar to both Mexicans and Coogee locals alike.
The iconic bar is stocked with over 50 tequilas and mezcals to suit all palates and budgets. The delicious cocktails are a mix of Mexican classics and local favourites with a tequila twist – the Blood Orange Margarita sits alongside the “infamous BullDog”.
At ROCA, everything is made fresh, from the authentic guacamole and salsas to the fresh lime cured ceviche. This is Mexican cooking at its truest- which Mexican chef Jonatan Romero & Gerardo Macip can both attest to.
