Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Great restaurant for a change of pace and scene. Definitely has the South American atmosphere with charming and cool staff warmly greeting and explaining the menu. Ceviche was superb done the traditional way with white fish and interesting takes on it with salmon and miso....Fantastic pork with crackling and then outstanding lomo steak off the wood grill. All washed down with delicious Pisco Sours and Argentine Malbec. Top marksMore

Uma is the best restaurant I have ever been to (and I’ve been to a lot!). The food is delicious and staff are warm and friendly but not intrusive. I had an enjoyable time with friends before we headed to a show in the city....Uma is in a great location and walkable distances to nearby tourist attractions such as the Perth Concert Hall. More than a five star rating to the chef and staff.More

The UMA Restaurant ticked all the boxes for us, the entire experience was exceptional. My partner and I chose the Journey Through Peru menu with matching wines and it was 2 hours of flavor explosions. Every dish was well presented and extraordinary in its own...right. We moved through creative ceviche, seafood combinations (octopus & squid) and falling off the bone lamb. The wine pairing, like the food, didn't miss. Each glass presented was unique and added to the experience. The staff that looked after us on the night provided a level of service that has become harder and harder to find. The three ladies were welcoming, engaging, provided loads of knowledge regarding the produce and origins of the menu, yet gave plenty of privacy so the night felt intimate. Thankyou for an amazing night, you made our weekend!More

I rarely make the effort to write a review but this restaurant was phenomenal. The food was next level amazing. So many different and random flavours on the plate that work so well together. The braised lamb was melt in your mouth and paired really...well with the potato side dish. The service was also excellent and all round was an amazing dinner!More

A quite different yet rewarding experience. We need more restaurants with this south american style. The starter of peruvian style spring roles was unique and with a hint of chilli, the slow cooked lamb shoulder was sensational, and the potato pave parmesan full of flavour...but not oily. The champions of the meal tho were the well paired purees, jus and sauces that added but didnt overpower the dishes. All this with service by attentive, knowlegable and happy staff.

We were in Perth for a few days after walking the Cape to Cape track over the past 7 days. We wanted to celebrate and looked on Trip Advisor for best restaurants in Perth. We were able to get a 6pm booking on a Saturday...night at short notice and we weren't disappointed. We were greeted by friendly and courteous waiting staff. Laura guided us through the menu and we chose the degustation menu for 2 with matching wines. The food was delicious and well presented and we felt very good value for money. My husband lived in Peru as a child so enjoyed conversing with the staff remembering his rusty Spanish. Thank you for a fabulous evening.More
