We enjoyed a drink at lunchtime overlooking the beach at Camps Bay from this venue. Very relaxed, friendly staff, beautiful outlook: a perfect place to watch the world go by!

Not overly impressed and expected better. Most of the table had the special which was supposed to be white fish but was brown! I had the fish and chips which turned out to be goujons .... service was JUST OK but paper knapkins??? Not quite what we expected.

With such a large menu it's easy to go wrong, but somehow each dish is very tasty and has a lot of attention to taste and presentation. Staff are friendly and the food come quite quickly, food is delicious and exactly what you'd expect at a Japanese restaurant!

Our Irish coffee arrived with very off cream already halfway dissolved into the coffee which our server did not seem to notice... so we decided to have a plain whiskey instead and leave. The setting is great, but on the day the wind was really making things very uncomfortable and noisy.

We ate here on the last night of our holiday and have to say we were disappointed. Whilst service was good and waiter very pleasant. The food was pretty average. Not great value for money - you are very much paying for location. We had to pay 25 Rand for mayonnaise which is a first for me!! Also had run... More

We came to UMI on the recommendation our host. We were able to snag a table on the balcony right before sunset. The views during sunset were beautiful. Besides the view our waitress made our experience worth while. She was so bubbly and gave us good pointers regarding nightlife in Cape Town. The food was average, but its totally worth... More

Great location .nice cocktails, waiters are not so clued up in what is truly Japanese Cusine and what is international. Bit pricey but it's your choice if you want it all , the venue and a good meal. Worth a try

I have eaten here a few time, in general I used to really enjoy the place and the views. However I brought my friends to visit and from the beginning it was disorganised. Got told no table on the balcony, then when I pointed one out, I was told it was booked for 8pm 😳 we went there and as... More
