Excellent Shellfish Rice

The restaurant is small, so it is better to have an earlier lunch. The service is slow as there is only one old waiter serving the food but the food especially the shellfish rich was the too fantastic to overcome all the shortcomings of this restaurant. The price is very cheap and affordable... read more

Amazing food at restaurant Uma, totally recomend the seafood rice, to die for. The owner is a bit grumpy but we think it even makes the place more interesting

Our friend took us to this little resto when we visited Lisbon. The rice plate is super good, portions are big and the prices excellent. The waiting could improve but since it is a family business it's forgiven :) Remember to book as the place is central and small.

I went first a year ago, experiencing the so famous UMA's seafood rice. It was really a fine meal. I came back to UMA again today and tried the veal liver ("iscas" in portuguese). They were simply done beautifully. At Lisbon downtown UMA is one of the best. It's a tiny place, the old staff that attends you won't be... More

We were told to go here by a tour guide earlier in the day. He said the prices are good, food is excellent and the service is quite rude but they're concentrating on the quality of the food. Whatever, he was one hundred percent right on all three counts. We got a pot of the sea food rice to share... More

I was recommended to go there from Korea's bloggers! The food was good enough for its price but there were too many Koreans

We had a reservation for 25 people so we basically had the whole restaurant for ourselves. The waiter is an old guy not speaking any English. He was quite rude actually but it didn't really bother us. We had the famous seafood rice for 10 Euros per person. As we were 25 we had to wait quite long time but... More

Had a meat dish with clamps. Portions were small and not very tasty. Service was so awful, that it was almost funny. Do not recommend this restaurant.
