Very good food, exelent service. I had just arrived in Texel at night and the bus dropped me here for dinner. I was very well received by the staff and had an amazing smoked cow beef (apparently smoked in their backyard), followed by a few winter seasonal Texels beers. Enjoyed every bit of it!

We stayed in Cocksburg for a short holiday week. Tried to have diner earlier in the week but no luck due to no reservation. Reservation is advisable. We had some starters and main, the 'sate' and 'picanha' very nice and good quality, service top and nice staff. Would go again if we stay here again in the area.

This very accessible establishment is a no frills but decent food pub that serves above average quality food of what you might expect from a place like this. A big plus for me is that they use a lot of local produce. The staff is very friendly and helpful as well.

Looking for dinner on our first night out in De Cocksdorp we chose De Rog because every surrounding restaurant was empty, while this one was filling up fast with smiling customers. We soon realized that this is a place favored by regulars, which made it cheerful and friendly. The service was solid, helpful and fairly quick and the street view... More

De Rog is a lively, intimate little restaurant in the middle of the village of de Cocksdorp. I have visited several times over the last few years and without exception, the food is superb. I have literally never had even a minor quibble over the cooking. The service too, is top notch. My personal favourite is the Texel salad, a... More

We visited the restaurant two times during a one week stay in Texel. Both times food was really good, something unusual for the island and Netherlands in particular. The only complain I could find is that there are no English menus, but all the staff spoke English and explained the dishes with patience for us. My wife had the mussels... More

Many visitors know the way to our cozy pub restaurant de Rog (English: Ray) in the middle of the Kikkertstraat, the main street of the village Cocksdorp. In summer, a cozy terrace on the village street and a second terrace on a beautiful nature were you can eat and drink. In high season there is often something to do, such as the 'Durper' market and live music.

Once you come in our restaurant, you will notice a hospitable and jovial received by Petra and her employees. Delicious food at a table or at the bar is what we offer you. Every day we have various specials on the menu for every single course, like soup, fish, meat or vegetarian. All of that is in addition to our normal menu. We will help you if necessary, also with our extensive wine list.

And of course we have seasonal dishes like asparagus with ham or salmon. The salmon is smoked by ourselves and our delicious pea soup is not to be missed, but then only in winter. A good reason to come over in winter.

Please note that you book on time to avoid disappointment. It is still often the case that we have to send people home with an empty stomach. Especially on weekends!

Enough about us, you have to experience it yourself. If you are in the area, come and visit us ...
