Late at night and hungry we happened to stumble on Rogue. Even though they had a birthday party for themselves they made room for us and served splendid food. Well worth a visit! Cosy interior and friendly service.

French food, wine bar (over 80 different types of French wines coming from small vineyards), cheese and cured meat platters, fresh local lobster, fish tank, open late every day. Food served until midnight Established in 2011,offer you French home style cuisine. Influenced by the rich culture we come from of food together with great wines. The idea here in Rouge is sharing.
