Had dinner last night here with my Wife & it was great. We try & visit this place once a month & they use very high qualify ingredients. The Service could use a little attention but outside of that this place is great. Not many places in town give you the Service you expect when you spend this kind of money on a meal. But I'll continue to go back & give them my business hands down.

My husband is a huge sushi fan, so we stopped in here. He said it was "pretty good." I didn't have the sushi, I had chicken and fried rice, which was really good, I thought. Not a lot of ambiance here, but it's a nice enough little place... takes credit card, which is nice. Decent food. But honestly, there were a lot of places we ate at in the same area that I liked better.

Its our favorite place in town , the staff are very friendly and the music nights are the best! Every day surfing movies on the big screen, amazing spicy tuna salad and good vibe. The sushi is sooo fresh and the chef is a real pro.
Highly recommended!

Umi sushi was the only sushi place we saw while visiting Mal Pais/Santa Teresa. The waitress was a bit ambitious at first - she started reading every menu item to us as we were just taking a look to decide where to eat. Though it was initially a turn-off, I came to realize she was actually pretty sweet and endearing - and she was just trying to do her job! They were having live music that night, and were playing surfing videos on a large screen outside in the courtyard where we ate. The food was very good, the service was friendly and laid back but quick enough. We didn't feel rushed at all, which is exactly what you want on a chill beach vacation. The prices were reasonable and we got a lot of tasty sushi for our money! I would've gone back if we'd had more time.

Pura vida! Umi Sushi, a great environment, with the best sushi and the best service.. we had a blast ! Great music and nice videos.. If you have any allergy as I do, feel comfortable to order your food. They are extremely careful. A weird thing in Costa Rica due to most restaurants around do not take into account customers necessities..
