“Bring your nose plugs!!”
Reviewed July 10, 2010

At first we were pleased to be sitting outside on their cute covered patio on a beautiful summer night. That quickly faded when we started getting periodic waves of a very offensive odor. When we questioned our waiter he was quick to dismiss us and said he couldn't smell anything. He also said there was nothing on the other side of the fence that could be giving off an odor. The next day we discover there were 4 dumpsters on the other side of the fence. Talk about an unpleasant dining experience. The food was tasty, service horrible...took us at least 15 minutes to get our drink order or bread. The good food does not make up for the very inattentive waiter and lovely odor we endured.

“Good if you want to push the boat out a little”
Reviewed May 8, 2010

Was the first restaurant we came across
drivinh up from Skaket Beach after sunset. Nice restaurant for a special occasion. On the pricey side though if you're only after a bite to eat. Food was nice.

“Average dining experience”
Reviewed January 24, 2010

Abba is generally an expensive restaurant. The evening we went we found the food to be only average and the portion sizes were not large. For cocktails, we would suggest folks order traditional drinks, as we found the speciality mixed drinks to not be that strong nor unique. The entrees, while ok, were not significantly better than going to a mid priced restaurant.
