Small well appointed restaurant with limited menu. The Pizza selections looked great but we wanted something more special. The soup and beet salad was delicious. The fish was very good but very small portions and high prices were the problem. The wait staff were very attentive.
Five stars except for the high prices and small portions.

The service was average but we were pleasantly surprised at how good the pizza and pasta dishes tasted. Slightly expensive for what it is but overall had a fabulous lunch and look forward to going back again!

I had the best seat in the house sitting at the bar watching the chefs at work. They are truly artists. Every single dish that came out of the kitchen was uniquely prepared for the guest. Pasta the pizzas the salads the fish were all at the light for the eye

This is a vibrant, busy and (very!) noisy kosher restaurant with a young and mainly religious clientelle. I spotted a few couples on a date! We started the evening with delicious wines and unusual hors d'oeuvres of crispy fried olives and well seasoned flat baked pastry. I then had an excellent piping hot succulent fillet of halibut cooked in a mouth-watering sauce. I finished with a delightful apple cake.
The service was outstandingly friendly anf efficient.
Despite my usual disability woes (my mobility scooter had to stay outside) and the restaurant being a little over-crowded for my taste I thoroughly recommend Abaita.
