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 (not to mention romantic) dining experiences. Chef/owner Erez Pinhas oversees an ambitious menu featuring Mediterranean flavors infused with surprising touches of Thai cuisine. Local seafood is highlighted in dishes like curried poached lobster and Wellfleet oysters in Thai lemon sauce. Herb-crusted rack of venison with shiitake risotto and pan-seared halibut with haricots verts will appeal to those who prefer dishes with a more Mediterranean flavor profile. Desserts offer a taste of the exotic, too, with a sticky black rice pudding and frozen lemon mousse with a citrus rosemary tuile. 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.
