This is the first sushi place I've been to where I liked every single roll. Maybe I was just hungry after a day on the beach, but the sushi was delicious and the service was very good.

This sushi was so fresh! Mmm... delicious. They menu was very extensive (150+ items!) and we sampled quite a bit of it - surprisingly nothing we asked for was unavailable. My favourite were the Costa Rican rolls which had spicy beef and fried plantain, as well as the Mal Pais and Sanata Teresa Rolls. We also had some desert rolls made of rice, banana and chocolate... so good. Service was great and the owner sent us some complimentary sake.

We almost didn't try this place because we thought "we can get sushi at home" but there are definitely some unique items with a local flair so don't pass this up!

Umi has fresh fish prepared as sushi and sashimi, sometimes with variations like added jalepenos, which add interest- but certainly are not traditional. Of course, this is Costa Rica, not Japan and the owner of this pleasant restaurant in this multi-ethnic surf haven is Israeli! It is possible to eat either inside or outside in a space that other venues share. Worth a visit.

The night we went, the sushi need not appear that fresh. Surprising given the location. We sat inside and the owner came in and ate a meal from a different restaurant. Service was good.

Great sushi options. Even options for non-seafood lovers. Great Japanese imported beer options. Quick service. Great ambiance. Close to Gelato shop and Artemis Cafe...intimate little zone.
