I love the food here at Abaca. For a person like me that visiting for the first time, you need to bring extra load because it is quite expensive. The rest are ok.

Hi, 4 of us were just there and had an over-the-top meal: one bottle of very nice wine, lots of sparkling water, 2 salads, one pizza, and then the "sharing" steak and fish. No desserts but coffee/tea. It was excellent but... More
