La Roca el Balcon Restaurant & Bar, just across the border in Nogales, Sonora, has been an Ambos Nogales landmark since it opened in 1972.

The building is built over the side of a rock hill, which adds to its amazing ambiance. Vibrant contrasts in light and colors, a unique but traditional decor, roaming musicians playing romantic acoustic ballads, and fantastic food make La Roca a must-see for visitors to the Nogales area.

La Roca is within walking distance of the downtown Nogales, Arizona border crossings. If you cross at the Morley Pedestrian Gate, walk across the street and continue walking on the nearest southbound street, Plutarco Elias Calles, for two blocks. You will see it ahead on your left.

If you cross at the Morley pedestrian crossing, take the first left, and after you pass under the walkway to the street ahead you will see the pedestrian railroad overpass. Walk across the overpass, take a right and then the first left onto Plutarco Elias Calles, turn the corner and La Roca is located on the right. If you do not feel like walking, you can also take a taxi ride from one of the drivers waiting at the end of the pedestrian walkway.
