3 Roka Akor

We just love Roka Akor for a first date. Let us start by saying that you'll look around to find a great looking crowd - so why not rise to the occasion with a little upscale attire? The decor is bright and open, the food is delicious and the service is impeccable. Yes, it's somewhat of an an upscale restaurant, but somehow it injects a casual feel that makes it perfect for anything from business meetings to first dates. If all goes well, then head downstairs to the dimly lit bar area for after-hours fun.
