"Are WE still in Cape Cod"

Tucked away in the middle of Orleans this charming little restaurant offers some of the most creative preparations of local seafood and Mediterranean specialties unlike any other restaurant that I have visited on the Cape.

Abba is the place I would go for my last meal. First I would have their Israeli Salad or their soup of the moment, then I would hope Stripped Bass was in season because it is the best Stripped Bass I've ever had. If no Bass then almost any fish on the menu is divine and if you haven't tried... More

Have been here many times, and it is always amazing!!!!! Lobster pad Thai is a favorite,but this time I tried the short ribs, and they were spectacular. Also tried the duck...phenomenal! If you have room try black sticky rice dessert!

Very interesting menu. Lots of seafood on the menu. Good cocktail and dessert choices as well. We sat out on the terrace. There are heaters if the weather is cool. On the pricy side. Make reservations in advance.

We dined here two nights in a row (Friday and Saturday night in mid-June) and had a really great experience both times. Felafel and Meguez sausage appetizers both excellent. The Thai seafood stew, lobster & shrimp Pad Thai, pan-seared scallop with red curry and snow peas, pan-seared halibut with peppers and eggplant entrees were all truly wonderful. Interesting but well... More

A recommendation of our hosts and we were not disappointed. Pleasant venue, delightful staff and quality food. A Gluten intollerant diner was not and issue. We would most definitely return.

From the outside, you'd never know what a great restaurant was inside this Cape Cod restaurant. Food is eclectic and delicious.

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 fine. This was our first visit and I hope it will... 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.
