We visited because the billboard ouside said Tripadvisor no 1. Releatively small - but the owner greeted is just after opening. Basic menu ...but caters for all tastes. But great food .... service and atmosphere...what you came to Greyton for...

The best whisky Don Pedro's that we have had in more than 30 years! Food was also excellent and staff was very friendly. A must visit when you are in Greyton!

Attended a wedding at Abbey Rose. What a stunning place. Great service, and food was of the highest standard. Definitely a must when visiting Greyton.

The food is very good, great variety, delicate in taste but for our taste it was often too salty, much too salty, good choice of wines, fast and efficient service, pleasant host, special atmosphere both inside and on terrace, romantic there!

I thoroughly enjoyed my spontaneous lunch at Abbey Rose. While I did only have a chicken schnitzel, it was tender and tasty and everything you want from a simple meal. Personally, I was able to gauge that the standard and quality of food preparation and...was high. Wonderful, hospitable staff that make you feel very welcome. Abbey Rose certainly measures up to the hype and I’d love to come back.More

Our party of five adults had lunch here while on a day trip to Greyton from Cape Town. The food was to die for! I settled for the beef beer pie which was a very generous meaty dish prepared to perfection. Others in the party...opted for the chicken pie, which Abby Rose is famed for, Fish and chips and Indian lamb and bean curry. Everyone, without exception, enjoyed their meal to the full. The atmosphere, service and ambiance is truly great. I'm so looking forward to visiting Greyton again and will definitely enjoy a meal at Abby Rose!More

My husband had the duck pie and it was frozen and warmed up in the oven i had the fillet asked for medium rare, it tasted boiled and it was old. terrible food will never go back, totally over rated and run downMore

I'm afraid I can't answer you on this one. He was really very affable with us when we frequented his restaurant. maybe you caught him on an off day, which is no excuse to react as he did>

I must admit, I didn't notice, sorry! There are salads etc. on the menu but I didn't particularly notice any vegan options.
