You don't come here for the food, you come here for the view. The sushi was pretty bad, although the mussels were redeeming. Still, I was happy to have a few drinks, food, and watch the sunset over the ocean.

Want enjoy the beauty of Camps Bay with a delightful meal, head to Umi. Elevated slightly above Victoria rd to give you a great view of the beach, the scene is lively and friendly. Our server Tatenda was fantastic educating us on the preparation and detail of the meals. We chose the pork buns and grilled calamari with, of course, a pilotage. Calamari was the best I've had, grilled and seasoned to perfection. Pork buns were sticky w nicely flavored pork inside.
With a side of fries, the meal w tip was only $27 or 365 ZAR. I would definitely go. Ack here given the chance.

Great restaurant, we actually went two nights running. The first time was grjeat and then we were told that a totally new menu was coming the next night, we had no option but to come back lol. Over the two nights we had Chicken wings in a light chilli batter (YUM) calamari (in a spicy batter), Sole, Ribs, Black cod (amazing) plus several other items.

Situated upstairs on a beach front hotel it is also a good place to view sunset.

The restaurant is located right across the beach so the view is beautiful. The place looks really nice and you can tell right away that is not going to be a cheap eat! It was not too expensive though and the food was really well done and tasty so I guess it was worth it.
I would recommend the place for couples but not so much for friends as the atmosphere is a bit 'dry'.
