We are regulars at Umu, as we have a Bach in the Coromandel, we always call in for lunch or breakfast because it has the best food and atmosphere. We called into for lunch and had 2 different Hot Pots , Lamb Curry and Chicken & Mushroom and they were both great Highly Recommend

Casual, relaxed atmosphere, friendly service. The food is always good, at times it is exceptional. No short cuts here, everything is fresh and made on the premises. I love the salads, the lavish and the pates. Can be a little noisy at times, but nice at the outdoor tables.

Getting late on A Sunday evening in Winter there were several places open but Umu was busiest so we went there. Friendly, efficient and attentive service ensued along with prompt delver you of the courses made up of really nice food. The mussel chowder was a unique dish that 'I don't want a starter' joined in to consume with relish.... More

During winter Coromandel Town closes majority of its doors. Considering it is an ideal summer holiday destination, it is easy to understand. However, Umu stays open and boy doesn't their food taste great! A trendy cafe restaurant offering a modern Italian menu plus a few favourites, Umu is a great place to eat. We tried the Angus beef burger, and... More

Consistently serving great food and great coffee for the locals and the visitors to Coromandel Township. Service with a smile and excellent efficient service to your table. The food is tasty and a good variety of choices on the menu. Basic decor dining but they provide rugs in the winter for the chairs so they do consider the customers comfort.... More

Wanted the breakfast but I was 15 minutes late so had to have the lunch menu instead, my wife had the chicken burger and she thought it was poor. She had an expectation that her burger would be a chicken fillet but was presented with a chicken mince pattie instead, I ordered the Angus burger it was average. The chips... More
