Do not miss this. Go, sit down (if you are lucky to get a table), order arroz de marisco. Wait. Enjoy a steaming pot of fresh seafood rice. Fuss-free, authentic, delicious and very decently priced. My husband says this is one of the best he has tasted in Lisbon. And he’s from Lisbon.
We saw some negative comments on Tripadvisor about the service in Uma, so we braced ourselves. But we were pleasantly surprised. Reflecting on the snarky comments: (a) why would you expect everyone to speak English; (b) ordering is straightforward and easy, just point at “arroz de marisco”; (c) if you have bothered to track down Uma, why order anything but the arroz de marisco; (d) waiting is actually a good thing because they are making the rice fresh on your order (as opposed to one of the trendy places in LX Factory where the arroz de polvo was pre-cooked and sitting in the fridge); (e) yes, I admit that old Senhor José is economical with his chirpiness while waiting tables (but we did get a smile) and not a polyglot, but the other folks are friendly enough.
All in all, definitely a must-go for arroz de marisco in Lisbon.
