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

I'll start by saying this - hands down the most creative and tasty food on the Cape! It was such a relief compared to all the standard fare at the typical dinner spots in this area. Yes, a few bits of decor are a little tired, but in all it is clean and enjoyable. Service was very attentive, and they... More

My husband and I have been dining at ABBA for many years. It continues to be one of our favorites. It is located in a small "Cape" house, but the interior is very pretty with architectural details, pale peachy pink walls and paintings. There is some banquet style seating with silk cushions in lush tones which is very attractive and... More

We ate here recently for a special occasion and were disappointed with our experience -- neither the food nor the service lived up to the advance hype or to the prices charged. After sampling a very ordinary bread basket, we shared an Israeli salad that barely had any of the advertised Israeli couscous in it. While our King Salmon entree... More

We were referred to this restaurant by the Inn keepers where we were staying. We really appreciated the referral but we were greatly disappointed and probably would not return. You could tell that at one time this place was "flying high", but at this point, the "flame seems to be flickering a bit". When we arrived, we noticed that regardless... More

Abba has been a favorite Lower Cape stop for a dozen years now, and most times we have really enjoyed the food, drinks, and service, though service has been variable. Based upon our visit in July 2014, Abba is beginning to feel a little tired. The menu remains pretty much the same as it has been for several years, with... More

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.
