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!

So this place is has a very interesting ambience not found too often on Cape Cod. It's as if you having dinner in a house that offers high ceilings and light colors and an airiness about the place.Treat yourself to some pretty special culinary experiences. We started with the falafel appetizer and the local Wellfleet oysters. Superb. I enjoyed a... More

Chef is creative and always puts together unusual flavors for a great meal. Restaurant is an older Cape Cod home that doesn't look like it houses an Israeli chef. But give it a try . You're in for a treat.

My spouse & I finally scored a reservation at Abba during our recent vacation on the Cape. We'd heard raves about the food.and unique it was; for seafood as far removed from the fried places, abba is an excellent choice. The broth of the seafood stew was light, creamy with a hint of coconut, perhaps. And delicately seasoned. My risotto... More
