I have eaten here twice this year and once before two years ago and it has always been a really good experience. The service is really good and the sushi is very delicious. Go there if you are craving for sushi :)

I am not a fan of Sushi. However, my wife is a BIG fan. In order to keep her happy, I decided I would give it another try. Umi Sushi converted me. I now like Sushi. It was so good, we ended up eating there twice. Sat outside in the open courtyard while they played surf videos on a large screen projector. C'mon! That's hooked up. Our server gave us some hot rice sake at no charge. Definitely recommend this place. It is kinda of pricey though.

Had a craving for Japanese once we saw the sign and was disappointed when we tried.

We ordered multiple types of Sushi only to find that only two of them that are caught locally were fresh.

The service took over 45 minutes both times we went. There is only one sushi place that we know of, so we decided to give it a second chance and we disappointed a second time as well.

However the american server was very nice! And they do have Free Wi-Fi

Wonderful fresh fish are featured in this lovely small restaurant in the center of Mal Pais. We were waited on by Nicole, a lovely young American ex-pat who was friendly and helpful.

Amazing. We tried 6 different rolls and all were superb! Go, stay awhile and try a bunch of things! The fish is so fresh in Mal Pais! Made for the most amazing sushi weve ever had.
