Birthday Dinner At Umi Barbados

This past Sunday, October 1st I celebrated 36 crazy years on this planet. I usually keep it simple and just have a birthday dinner. This year I wanted to try something different as I was browsing through Facebook I stumbled upon Umi Barbados page.

What first caught my attention was the fact they offered a free birthday cake. Hello ! Free cake is a cake lovers dream. My friend Marvin was my date for the night. I think he probably loves eating even more than I do. He is like the best boyfriend I never had; what can I say he keeps me young. Good company and delicious cuisine it was the recipe for a night of sheer perfection.

Umi Barbados is located in The Sugar Bay resort, Hastings Christ Church. They serve Asian Fusion. I give them five stars.  Everything was just legit. If you are ever in Barbados this is one of my recommended places to try.



Clean and elegant surroundings and you have a view of the ocean while you dine.

The staff was super attentive, courteous and accommodating.


Excellent Value for money. The entire meal was 123 Bds. I think that was a steal. Check out their menu here Umi Menu

I never had sushi before. This was a great tasting first try. The cake was rich and moist and the cocktails to die for. Did I mention we got a complimentary bottle of Champagne?

And To top it all off there was a live band. They sang all the latest hits and also took requests.


A night well spent. I wish I could go back this week 🙂
