Being Rimini-born but away for years, I did not know Abocar and went there with my wife for dinner on Christmas' Eve following the recommendation of a friend. We had a wonderful experience. Excellent up to outstanding food and wines - with a very interesting mix of tradition and experimentation, - very caring and expert service. The price was not cheap but very fair for the overall quality (and quantity). Thank you guys and keep up with the excellent trajectory.

Two very minor suggestions for the owners: a) improve the design of the menu and add some clarity about portion sizes, particularly if you keep offering good quantities of special nibbles and homemade bread; b) add some design element to the doors of the toilettes... it's the first thing customers see when entering into the restaurant and they are rather flat and out of sync with everything else in the environment.

My wife and I didn't have much information about Abocar, except is was Michelin recommended (not starred) and close to our hotel in Rimini. What a great surprise! Decoration is clean and modern, with nice music. Service is friendly and efficient. But what really stands out is the food. Contemporary cuisine, not too modern, very elegant, flavourful and well-made, respectful of (great) ingredients and showing perfect technique, international with italian touches. To sum it up: Abocar was one of the top-3 restaurants of our 15-day trip around Liguria, Emilia Romagna and Veneto (which included much more expensive and famous restaurants, such as Osteria Francescana in Modena). We would definitely go there again and recommend it for any food lover. Abocar deserves at least one Michelin star (maybe two)! Last but not least: prices are very reasonable, especially for the quality of the food. While in Rimini, don't miss it!

If you're looking for a fresh take on some classics, such as ravioli, enjoy experimental cuisine and are not fussy with what you eat, then this is the place for you. If you fall into any other categories and appreciate traditional and 'proper' food, then I wouldn't bother.
The place is conveniently located in the city centre, a stone's throw away from the city museum and the bustling bars. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. Booking is not essential but strongly recommended, especially at weekends.
The choice of food is varied and divided over three set menus and the choice à la carte. You can opt for an all meat, all fish or meat-cum-fish set menu. These come with a range of the best sellers from the restaurant and are reasonably priced at €29 per person for the smaller menus and €39 for the bigger one. Drinks are not included, but you can get a decent selection of artisanal beers (mostly local) and wines. The à la carte menu comprises dishes for about €10 each.
The set menus start with some amuse bouches served with a vegetable smoothie. These include tapioca chops served with a grapefruit mayonnaise, some delicious pecorino cheese and caramelised onions balls and filo pastry cannoli filled with cheese. The starters range from fish carpaccio in a courgette and feta sauce, roasted ravioli with a dried tomato soup and mullet with romesco sauce.
Despite the dishes looking very impressive and slightly edging on to molecular cuisine, I have to agree the overall impression was that of having too much on a plate. Too many ingredients to remember what each component was and, in all honesty, we didn't think some of the combinations really worked. That said, I think it all comes down to personal preferences, seeing as the people sat at the table next to ours were praising the smoothie, which we found extremely bitter.
Overall, sadly I don't think this place is our cup of tea. It has great potential and we enjoyed the great variety of food presented, but we feel simplifying the menu a little bit would probably guarantee a wider audience.
