Abba Restaurant Review: Don't judge a book by its cover: from the outside Abba looks like a nondescript Cape cottage, but on the inside, the restaurant offers one of the Outer Cape's most interesting, contemporary dining experiences. The front of house is professionally run and the kitchen works hard to please each guest. Enjoy local seafood such as grilled bay scallops and Wellfleet oysters in Thai lemon sauce. Dishes range from Mediterranean, like halibut with haricots verts, to more exotic flavors including ras al hanout marinated rack of lamb and a lobster and shrimp pad thai. The emphasis is on seafood but there is also a grilled filet mignon and duck breast with gnocchi. Desserts offer a taste of the exotic, too, with a warm walnut date pudding cake with ginger ice cream. Wine is a highlight of the restaurant experience. The list, one of the best on the Cape, focuses heavily on European selections as well as a number of ports, Cognacs and dessert wines.
