Excellent eclectic dinner

We dined here on the recommendation of our innkeeper. It was a truly wonderful experience. The menu offered a variety of interesting choices and it seemed all good. We tried the mussels, which were plump and delicious with the pineapple. The entrees were equally excellent. The wine selection was... read more

This restaurant is truly a gem on Cape Cod. The atmosphere is so pleasant, and the food is just delightful. I had the Oysters and the Mussels with the most wonderful light sauce. Nothing is over powering, everything is so fresh and so well prepared. If you only have a few nights to spend on the Cape, Abba's should on... More

We have eaten here at least 15 times over the years and it's always fantastic. Everything is fresh and carefully prepared. The cocktails are worth ordering! I've noticed the staff is very faithful from year to year and I think that says a lot about the management.

The food was clearly made to order, nothing made ahead. Polite, smart staff. Small with lovely ambiance. Clearly locals were there enjoying the bar and it had a positive energy. We shared appetizers that were all wonderful, spring rolls, falafels, soups. The wine selection is very good! Very unique menu!

Took friends with their sophisticate New York palates to Abba for dinner. We know it is awesome, fresh and cooked to perfection, but even our friends were so impressed; they said it was one of the finest, if not THE finest dinner they ever had. The atmosphere is as sophisticated as the food. Have never had a bad meal or... More

ABBA provides a little romance and lots of fabulous innovative food. The staff is very attentive and helpful at choosing items on the menu. There is a touch of creative Thai to classic dinners such as rack of lamb and duck with touches of couscous, spices, and care.All this makes for a memorable evening. . Highly recommend this lovely little... More

The menu is interesting and unique for the Cape--an interesting fusion of Thai and Israeli. Most dishes are tasty, especially the lobster pad thai. But, and this is a big but, the hostess and servers are often aloof. Less friendly than the typical Cape restaurant.

My husband and I ate here on our last night at the Cape. After having so many satisfying meals on our New England vacation, our experience in this restaurant turned out to be the best. I had the best Thai mussel dish and the grilled calamari with eggplant, while my husband had the risotto seafood. They were all beyond excellent!
