About Us

 

Rose Villa is a comfortable casual restaurant in a unique historic setting in Ormond Beach, Florida.
We feature Southern inspired cuisine, including our signature southern fried chicken,
classic craft cocktails and an ample selection of wines.

Built in the late 1800’s, Rose Villa was established as a bed and breakfast in 1901.
A small exclusive adjunct to Henry Flagler’s Ormond Hotel, it accommodated important guests
who preferred more privacy than the famous hotel afforded. It thrived for many years,
later became a real estate office, and eventually began to suffer from its age.

The beautiful old building came back to life when it was purchased by Bill Jones in 2007.
With an amazing vision, he transformed the original Rose Villa into the Victorian jewel it is today.
From the bold cranberry and apple green colors on the outside to the magnificent custom
wallpapered walls and ceilings throughout, you are transported to the era
of the 1920’s with every minute detail.

Today, Rose Villa offers a polished casual atmosphere with Southern hospitality.
Whether you come to enjoy casual cocktails and conversation at the bar
or a leisurely dining experience, you will be charmed.

Feel free to explore the restored areas of our building. UPSTAIRS Absinthe & Dessert Bar is open evenings
for late dessert, cocktails and light fare. Ask about the secret door we use occasionally
as the speakeasy. Our media room, equipped with a large monitor for presentations
and videos is available for private parties and dinner meetings.

The Veranda & the Gazebo are open for cocktails, lunch, and dinner during the temperate months.
We are working to weatherize both areas to extend our outdoor season.

Managing partner Kirt Roberts and proprietors Hal & Cindy Gerow thank you for joining us
