Great meal at Umu!

Our experience at Umu was a highlight of our trip around the North Island. The catch of the day was grouper - not a pretty fish - but it was cooked to perfection. The desserts were excellent - I can thoroughly recommend the vanilla panacotta with vodka poached rhubarb.

After a long day of prancing around the lovely Coromandel Peninsula, all we needed was a good hearty dinner. Umu cafe caught our attention as they were offering a takeaway promotion on their pizzas. Not only were they at a bargain of $20 (?) per large pizza, but, upon receiving the pizzas, we realized how heavy the box was. That... More

Had lunch here with a group of friends. Staff were pleasant and efficient. Food selection also very good. Although they were busy our food which was well presented, and drinks arrived at the table very quickly. Will definitely come here again on our next visit to Coromandel

After a very busy, energetic day exploring the Coromandel coastline we were in need of something to recharge our batteries, and Umu fit the bill. Nothing fancy, but really friendly service and good food was just what we needed (and reasonable prices).
