We celebrated my big 60 with dinner at Abba. It was the end if their season, but food and wine choices were still good. We had the lamb chop and halibut entrées which were excellent. My better half had an excellent salad of spicy greens and crusted fried goat cheese. I had the lamb arancini with Moroccan sauce which was... More

The owners also operate the restaurant so they're there on site making sure every detail is to perfection. I sat at the bar had the grilled octopus salad and the foie gras my friend had some other non-seafood options we had some wine and a cocktail it is very nice. Bartender was a little odd she just sort of stood... More

Terrific and innovative food! The appetizers (Eggplant soup with goat cheese and Marinated, smooth and refined flavor, and Israeli salad that was had more greens, all very good, than most Israeli salads I've had). The Thai seafood stew had a wonderful combination of coconut broth with lemon grass and cilantro, plus excellent seafood. We also loved the seared scallops with... More

If I could eat here every single evening I would and I would have no problem ordering the same thing over and over and over. Lobster pad thai is honestly the best dish. It's a little tricky getting in as the restaurant is small so plan ahead and make reservations. You will not be disappointed. Servers are fantastic and so... More

This place served the best food we had on our recent visit to the Cape. The chef produces wonderful concoctions based on Israeli and Thai cuisines. Everything we had was delicious, freshly cooked and very flavoursome. Our service was a bit hit and miss at times due to the place being very busy, but, once ordered, all our food arrived... More

Abba is our favorite Cape restaurant. We come every year and find it to consistently great every time. It is fine dining Cape Style. We love sitting on the patio but have enjoyed meals inside as well. I always order the tuna entree but love many things on the menu.

In the past the Cape was known only for its lobster, clams and chowder. It's nice to see over the years creative chefs have arrived and are offering a international fair. We're excited to try Abba knowing that the chef was Israeli. The menu was a mix of Mediterranean with a Thailand influence. The taste flowed very well together and... More

Quiet place, attentive but not cloying service, and excellent food. Lobster shrimp pad tai was magnificent, duck breast sauce was a bit too spicy for my taste. I will return, though prices are a bit over my budget. We are year rounders on Cape Cod and know all the good restaurants. Abba belongs at the top.
