Loved the Shrimp Pad Thai and Lemon Drop Martini! Cute cozy house setting! Ate with 4 young adults and they all found great things on the menu. Would definately go back!

We've returned here frequently. Dinner was great this time--duck breast with polenta, and lobster and shrimp pad thai. But for the expense, I am not sure it was good enough. Might stick to a clam shack next year.

Ate there twice, the first night food was superb, the second night brought different friends visiting us. Again the food was served to perfection, it was all good until the bill came. One of my guests picked up the bill, looked it over and gave her credit card. However, with out saying one word presented the copy to be signed.... More

Everything in the menu was very high for what it was. I can deal with slightly higher prices for good ingredients but I felt that this was in excess. Portions were on the smaller size, so again they did not match the dollar amount. The place is cute and the food is good but menu is small and we left... More

Ordered a bottle of wine and waiter poured the first glass and never came back to our table to pour more. We were on a self serve. Baby snow peas on the salmon dish still had the non chewable membranes. Complained to manager who agreed. Good food but not a five star.

Abba has always been a favorite restaurant for me. The bar is cozy & friendly, usually with interesting patrons. My last visit was on a return trip to the mid-Cape from Ptown. After a call, 2 seats were saved at the bar for us. The staff is professional & thoughtful. The falafel starter was elegant and very tasty, with just... More

My wife and I very much enjoyed our meals at Abba. My entree was Wild salmon, my wife had the oysters and salad. A treat for both of us. Our server, Joe, was very attentive and polished with his service. My wife had the berry sorbet and loved it. I was hoping to enjoy a glass of limoncello after dinner,... More

I say different because Abba provides some diversity to the seafood inspired Cape Cod restaurants regularly found nearby. The middle east/Asian flair to the appetizers adds flavors of Israel and Thailand in delicious seafood and vegetable choices. The Thai seafood stew rivals that of a fine Thai restaurant as does the lobster/shrimp pad thai. Add items like these to traditional... More

We had a wonderful evening at Abba. We loved the variety of options on the menu. Each of us was pleased with what we chose. We particularly liked the vegetable borsht, felafel, tuna with tamarind sauce and strawberry and rhubarb pavlova. We look forward to returning...and sitting in the outside space next time!

We've just had an 'ok' meal at Abba Starters of Paneer chilli and Tuna Veg Momo were great and the cocktails are European quality But.. Main courses very disappointing.. Seafood sizzler sauce tastes like UK school dinner curry and the Mousaka (ok also prob a little my fault for ordering) was a mash of kidney beans, cheese and breaded chicken... More
