We arrived early for an 8 p.m. reservation and the hostess was able to seat us within 10 minutes of our arrival when a table for two opened up. That was followed up by excellent service and outstanding food. The menu includes a wonderful selection...More

This highly rated restaurant lived up to expectations. I had the shrimp and lobster pad thai which was outstanding.

If I could give this restaurant another star, I would. We met friends for dinner and had another fabulous meal. The lobster pad Thai is to die for. Try the Malabi and black rice pudding for dessert.

We were pleased to find Abba a year ago, and part of our annual return to the cape was anticipating this year's visit to this restaurant. We follow a somewhat restricted diet -no meat, no shellfish- so found ourselves limited to three menu items, though...More

I would say that $200 would cover it very nicely, with some wiggle room. Three of us dined there for $275 (with tip) with the same parameters, but we also had a cocktail before dinner.
