Lovely restaurant. As its upstairs great views of beach and sunset. Had line fish; great combination of flavours makes this a winner with a glass of chilled wine. Good attentive service and an amazing view.

Great restaurant overlooking the beach with fantastic views. The line fish was superb as was the service. The cost for 4 of us was approx £70 which included drinks. In my opinion it was superb value for money.

We have visited Umi on numerous occasions and would by far recommend the soft shell crab and rock shrimp appetisers with a cold glass of Chardonnay, well my personal fav!! The staff are very welcoming and it is a bit more pricey than some other places but the views are worth it

Lovely location overlooking the front Stopped.for a pre dinner drink with my wife. My whisky sour first class but my wife's dacquery not so. A tall glass filled with slushed ice and no alcohol flavour whatsoever. On approaching the manager we were told cocktails shouldn't taste of alcohol (err??). He said there was a double rum in it. We said... More

The best time to go is just before sunset, make sure you get a table close to balcony. As opposed to the other places downstairs there is a lot of people passing, Umi is so ideally positioned. For appetisers the fried rice with Tuna, crumbed baby squid was good. Their roll portion is size is quite good aswell for sushi.... More

We sat with cocktails to watch the sunset on the balcony here in the afternoon, we then saw and smelt people's food around us and decided to stay and have dinner. What delicious food it was amazing cocktails, great atmosphere and friendly staff I would highly recommend.

Absolutely loved this place - perfect view of Camps Bay Beach. Amazing food, and the service provided by Zandi was fantastic! Cannot wait to visit again when I'm back in Cape Town.

This is a great position to watch the sun set over Camps Bay. The service was friendly and efficient and the wine list extensive. We had sushi with our drinks and the starters were spicy and different. The Blackened Cod was excellent although very expensive but worth the price once in a while. We had a great evening.
