We had a birthday dinner here in December. The place looks really nice and has a lovely view. Unfortunately the service was a let down, not very attentive and very very very slow. Eventually, when the food arrived, it was worth waiting for. It is...More

Umi is a average Asian Restaurant in Camps Bay/ Cape Town. It's located directly at the beach promenade. The interiors/ furnishings are not appealing. A bit shabby. The seats are to low. The service is friendly and fast. The dishes were ok but nothing special....More
