Camps Bay view is the main attraction of this restaurant. Service does its best but could be more attentive. Food okay, very nice sushi but at a relatively high price.

We had the sushi with some cocktails to enjoy the perfect view. Sushi was good and priced to similar other sushi establishments in Cape Town. Service was also good and we had a great time.More

We like Japanese, this was one of the best, we visited twice in 12 nights and would go back again. The food is top quality, with a large arrange of wines and cocktails, not expensive, but food in Camps Bay is all reasonably priced.

The menu at Umi looks great, it's got a lovely atmosphere and the service is very good, but the food didn't live up to the promise of the menu, which was a real shame. The chicken wings were very nice though!
