Umi Sushi is a great little spot for delicious and fresh sushi. After surfing all morning and wanting something lite, fresh, and delicious for lunch we headed to Umi Sushi. It's a small restaurant, but the sushi was great. It's walking distance from the beach and from most hotels, located in the center of Mal Pais. Umi Sushi offered a wide variety of rolls and all 5 of us could find something we wanted and that tasted great. It is reflective of the Mal Pais area with a casual, but chic feel. It was perfect for what we were looking for.

We were down for our honeymoon and wanted some super fresh fish and sushi. It seemed only natural to try this place out. It's in a friendly little surf town right on the beach. The food was fantastic. Best Sushi we had the whole trip! Nice ambiance too! We sat outside and it was a gorgeous night with a nice breeze so we couldn't have picked a better place to eat some delicious, fresh sushi! The food was fresh, the service was prompt, the premises were clean, and the staff was really friendly. Go check it out for yourself, you'll see!

Umi Sushi gets my vote!! I eat here several times when I go down. I've owned a 2nd home here for several years and this is the one place that never changes. It's quality fresh sushi each and every time. The prices are very reasonable, a huge meal with soup and desert for under 10$ USD. David, the owner, isvalways up for some good conversation and more than likely a free bottle of sake.!! Also, free WIFI in a place very short on Internet hotspots.

This restaurant came highly recommended, and I am sorry to say it did not live up to its recommendation. The sushi quality was poor, the fish was not local or fresh, and it was very expensive. It is a tourist trap, there are several other local spots with fresh sushi- I recommend you try any of these instead of going to Umi Sushi.
