Hmm, seems like we all gave you different answers. Uber people most of the time do not know their way around town, as opposed to trained taxi drivers. And do not trust Uber drivers or taxi drivers to speak English. Lots of my American friends cannot make themselves understood when they visit.
The set fee is an advantage only if it is reasonable enough.
If you go for regular taxis, make sure you use a regular company like G7 or Taxi Bleus (when you book online, you can end up on very expensive dodgy websites)

I like Uber because you know the rate before leaving. Plus, many of them speak English and other languages. The cars are clean and the drivers are very good.

There harldy is any difference between the two. When taxis are in strong demand (rush hour, airports, train stations, late at night in neighbourhoods where people go out), Uber is in fact way more expensive than regular taxis

I prefer taxi during the day, since they can drive through more streets than private cars, something that will allow you to move faster when there is a lot of traffic (check G7 APP)
Uber is the best option at night, to make sure you know the name of your driver and feel more secure. ;)
