“Abbey Rose...consistant, tasty home cooked meals”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 27, 2014

Andre and Anita...
A quick and heartfelt " thank-you " for the consistant, tasty home cooked meals our family enjoy's at the Abbey Rose.
All meals enjoyed have been seved using fresh ingredients, service prompt and unobtrusive and veg has always been a tasty surprise...pampoen cookies et al.
Last evenings meal was particularly special with the coszy atmosphere and superb Chicken Pie... a true winner (Anita, I wouldn't be surprised in Elton John wrote a song in it's honour if he tried your Chicken Pie).

Looking fwd. to our next visit. Well done to both of You for your fine culinary efforts

“Abbey rose have best food and service and setting!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 13, 2014 via mobile

We visited Greyton in March for a lobg weekend. We always walk around to chat to the locals to get an idea of the "must do's" if we visit a new town.. a few of the locals mentioned that we should not leave without having a meal at Abbey Rose. We booked for supper that Friday evening. It was such a great experience! A romantic setting with amazing service and a very friendly host/owner. He mentioned that his wife is the chef.
It was probably one of the best meals I ever had!! I can recommend the ribs, oxtail, stuffed chicken breast the portions are huge! ...and definitely the deep fried camerbert as starter! The snails was also amazing and totally different than any other snail starter I ever tried. They wine list has great wines at a very affordable price. Needless to say we went back the next evening. The owner also mentioned that they do pizzas on a Tuesday...Next time we will stay till Wednesday, especially to try the pizzas!
