Food was good My opinion is That the prices are quite high for the value Bad feeling at the end when (although it was written in the menu that taxes but not the tips were included in the prices) on the bill they added 10% and expressely asked for tip. Just ruined the good feeling

We ate here one night as a default restaurant. We wanted to eat at another restaurant, but as it turned out it was Wednesday and they were closed. We were nicely surprised to find this sushi place on our way back to the hotel. It has wonderful food for a good price and our waitress was wonderful. One bonus was... More

Thought we'd try the sushi joint tonight. I wasn't impressed. The light roll for 2500 was good and the agedashi tofu was surprisingly good for Costa Rica. However the tempura was terrible. The chef needs to find a picture if what tempura looks like and try harder. This was basically dredged in chicken batter and fried all together with some... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

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...

The tuna salad was pure tuna, avocado and ginger dressing with a handful of white rice and it was the perfect lunch. My boyfriend had the fire roll which tasted very good but we're still unsure as to what was actually in it. If you're in that area, give it a shot.
