We went to Abbey Rose purely for the pork belly and we were not disappointed. Cooked to perfection, really generous portions with plenty sides, it was simply delicious. Service great too. If we’re ever back in Greyton we will definitely visit again.

Abbey Rose is quite exceptional, from the wonderful, wholesome food - lots of choice and great portion sizes for my hungry teen boys! - to the wonderful service and the humour and chat of Andre the owner. Apparently we are now honorary locals because we...More

Some of the best lamb shank we have tasted. The ribs were excellent too. This was the only restaurant hat was full and for good reason. Super friendly and attentive staff and fantastic grub. We are heading back tomorrow.
