The title says it all really. This place is really lovely. Well priced and the food is great. Highly recommend the Umu Breakfast and the Umu Baked Beans. Compliments to the chef/s.

We came to Umu as recommended by the nearby lodge, for a late dinner. Our mussels dishes were great, hudge and tasty, and despite the fact that we stayed well after the closing hour of the restaurant, the staff was always friendly and never rushed us. Went there the next morning for breakfast, and we weren't disappointed either.

When we visit Coromandel usually twice a year in Jan and in April, we coffee here every day and often sample the superb range of cabinet goodies on offer. Lovely atmosphere with plenty of friendly staff. Highly recommend.

I had vegetarian pasta, quite tasty, very large portion. husband had lamb, very large portion, veg nice, but meat really tough and gristly. perhaps choose options like pasta, burgers, pizza to be on safe side, then I don't think you will be disappointed.

Both the pizza we had and the vegetarian platter were really good. The platter contained lots of homemade dishes like roasted mushroom pate and hummus, as well as crackers. The food arrived very fast. The pizza took five minutes longer since we requested it without ham, which they put accidentally. They noticed themselves and made a new one, however, and... More

Four of us enjoyed lunch here. Great food, pleasant service and overall enjoyable. Coffee was very good although a bit expensive.

It's a hit and miss this one. I would recommend their pizzas, but not anything else. You are not spoilt for choice is this area though.
