We had a great dinner the food was delicious and the waiter was very friendly. We had inside seating because it was raining on the Cape for the entire weekend we were there.

The decor is very pink, and the parking is limited. Tables are tightly packed together. The waiter was a little overwhelmed and seemed to be running around a lot looking stressed, but it did not take an unusually long time to get our food. I expected more middle eastern choices given the reputation, which was not really the case. The... More

Abba has been our go-to place on the outer Cape since it opened several years ago. At the time it was unique and innovative, not stuffy like some of the other high end restaurants in the area. The infusion of Middle Eastern and Asian flavors with local seafood was delightful for many years. But, alas, after our visit this year,... More

After being closed last year, It has reopened. They still serve one of the best Pad Thai dishes you will have anywhere. Great service, friendly staff, not noisy so you can still have a conversation with people at your table. If you try it you won't be disapointed.

My hopes were high for this restaurant after reading the reviews on TripAdvisor. But after a terrible experience here I can't understand the strong reviews others have written. My party of four (which included a professional chef) found the food average (and well below average when considering the $35/entree pricing) and the service mediocre. Two of us had the lamp... More

We enjoyed the scallops and the lobster & shrimp Pad Thai quite a bit. Although the portion was on the smaller side, there was plenty of lobster! The spring roll appetizer was delightful. The service did not match the food quality as we were waiting quite a bit during the meal.

Excellent restaurant with great service. The menu is a Thai Israeli fusion. The menu options are not your standard fare, but everything I have had there over the years has been excellent. If you are willing try things out of the ordinary this is the place to go. My wife always has the Pad Thai. I work the menu. I... More

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
