After a day out at the beach we wanted to enjoy dinner during sunset. Umi is perfectly located, great atmosphere and perfect view to see beach and sunset. Prices are on the higher end which might be justified given the location. What made our visit...More

It is easy to copy Nobu but not easy to deliver the same quality. We ordered many dishes. Sushi arrived first (normally they are served last). We understood quickly why! They were just out of the fridge. The prawn tempura roll must have been prepared...More

We went there in couple to have a romantic dinner. The food was really nice and the saké too! The price was a little bit out of market but we don't have any regret!
