Great place for a nice evening

Before coming here I overheard neighbors at Sunbird swoon about their dinner here, knew how delicious the scallops and the tuna had been, and as always anticipation is a big part of the fun. We (4 @ dinner) chose both dishes and do agree they are great, particularly the sauce of the tuna was... read more

...and worth every cent. We went for dinner before a nearby regional/community theatre event. (Go see Man of LaMancha.) The watermelon based gazpacho alone would have been enough of a taste bud delight to call the night a success. The duck with greens and couscous -- just excellent. Even the bread and butter was good. The rest of my party... More

Went to dinner with our daughter and husband. I had the grilled tuna, they had the spicy shrimp. All meals were excellent. Its a small place and comfortable ambiance. Service is professional and wait staff accommodating. I would recommend dining here.

This was our first time dining at Abba. We wanted to try something different during our summer stay on the Cape. The review for Abba on Trip Advisor mad it sound like the right choice. Looking at the menu it was hared to decide on an appetizer and main course. It is a unique menu and everything looked appealing. I... More

My husband and I enjoyed a fabulous dinner at abba on a recent trip to the cape... Carefully prepared foods with excellent service, wines and a warm relaxed atmosphere- special food and experience! Definitely should be on your list of places to eat while in the area.

Granted, only my 2nd visit to the Cape, but as a vegetarian in a land of seafood, this restaurant was perfect. Falafel was perfect, tofu dish was delicious and my girlfriend loved her scallops. Our only regret was that we visited Abba on our first night and decided to try new places the rest of the week, none topped out... More

Just such a wonderful restaurant at the Cape. I went with my parents for a Saturday evening meal and gorged myself on this calamari salad appetizer that was to die for. For an entree, I went with the lobster pad thai because it seemed like everyone was talking about it, so I went for it. Also, living in Arkansas for... More

we had a large family group of 11. The service and the ambience was excellent. Several of us had the lobster and shrimp pad Thai. It was delicious. The fish was fresh and well prepared. The owner chef came over and spoke to us and told us the history of the restaurant. All of this added to the whole dining... More

This place is great for couples. The fish is fresh and the waitstaff are friendly and helpful. The wine list is decent as well.

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
