“BIRTHDAY DINNER A SUCCESS AT ABBA”
Reviewed 23 October 2013

Eight of us celebrated my sister's birthday at Abba. On a Saturday night and holiday weekend, we had to take an 8:30 PM reservation due to our number. This was my fifth dinner at Abba (first for four of the eight). Service was attentive and food was superb, especially the breast of duck which two of us had as an entree. Wine list is eclectic, with an Israeli Cabernet which I had never tasted (very good). The restaurant was busy, and staff were friendly and attentive. Probably the best spot in Orleans.

“Expensive, popular, interesting food - but !”
Reviewed 19 October 2013

Well prepared food suffers when it is served cold. Perhaps there needs to be more staff to get food from lower level kitchen to dining room. We sent back cold rack of lamb and waited quite awhile for its return. In the meantime the other dinner got cold. It always puts a damper on the evening when dinners are not enjoyed at the same time.

The menu has interesting selections in high $20 and $30 range - wine is also pricey. With these prices you should get better service.

Restaurant is very popular and you must call well in advance for reservations.

“More than cape food”
Reviewed 14 October 2013 via mobile

This small decorative indoor or outdoor restaurant serves creative fare using many cape seafood and land lover delights. The service is attentive. It is a lovely change from sand and surf.Reservations in advance are essential.

“a class act”
Reviewed 28 September 2013

On a Friday night in late September we had a wonderful experience. The hostess was friendly, the waitperson was attentive,and the food was excellent. We sat on the terrace which was quieter and more spacious. My wife had the soup appetizer;I had the falafel. Both were delicious. My wife had the duck entree;I had the rack of lamb. Both were perfectly prepared. Service was perfectly paced. This represents the 6th time we have eaten here (we visit the Cape every Septmber). The food and service have been consistently superb.
