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.

We couldn't believe the Zagat rating. So fabulous! For four years in a row, when visiting the Cape, we have eaten at Abba. The food is divine, the service is wonderful. It's a little converted house, not hard to find with a GPS. Worth the trip Don't miss this amazing experience.

An amazing dinner. Pam was our waitress. She was from Naples Florida. She was the ONLY waitress that did not clear our table while someone was still eating. We complimented her on this and she said she trained in Naples at a high end restaurant that covers 29 steps to be a successful waitress. It was a pleasure to have... More

We had been to Abba several years ago and had a pleasant experience. Unfortunately, I cannot say the same about our return this past week. Even before dining at Abba we were disappointed with the service. When the owner called us a few days prior to confirm our reservation (a large party), she seemed nice enough. When we politely inquired... More

Abba is easily missed but definitely not to be missed. We received service which was informative and well paced although there were too many offers of bread and a long delay pres noting the check. The food was an exceptional fusion and great value. Try the oysters and for the brave jalepeno vodka but don't be put off by Thai... More

It is listed as Thai food, but it is not traditional. It is more of a fusion with American meats but with Thai spices. Very well prepared and the service was excellent. Highly recommend getting the lobster and shrimp pad thai.

Slow service, the duck was over cooked and way too spivey. The lamb chops were also over cooked. And when we pointed this out to them they blamed it on their cooks who they have had a hard time hiring. She even described the kitchen as being "a classroom". They gave us a gift certificate for a future visit....which of... More

This is a cozy, elegant restarant in Orleans. Beautiful lighting, padded seats, and has porch seating. The menu is an interesting mix of middle Eastern and Thai with fresh seafood. The cocktails are amazing and creative. I had the spring rolls as an appetizer and the lobster and shrimp pad Thai for my entree. Everyone at the table enjoyed their... More

I ate dinner at Abba last month, June 2016, and again last night, July 5 , 2016, both times as part of a party of three. The June experience was great, with a particularly able server, a young man who anticipated our needs and was prepared to expand on the information presented on the menu re entrees and beverages. Such... More
