Went to Bar Urca with my girlfriend's cousin who's lived in Rio for quite some time. She ordered the shrimp in a pumpkin which was delicious. Quite a unique dish, I don't think I've seen that anywhere else.

Really like this spot. As is high quality and genuine food in a very relaxing ambiance. Also not very touristic so it gives quite a true carioca feeling. Have a beer and a snack outside and up for a seat down meal.

Lovely restaurant, amazing food. Good quality probably the best in Rio. Rated 3/5 because it’s a little cramped and very expensive compared to other places in Rio we have eaten. Staff very friendly and a nice view of the bay

We went to this restaurant (on the second floor) after coming down from the Sugar Loaf and enjoyed the food there. We ordered the Camarão na moranga and didn't know it was going to be that big. We looked over other table, and they only...More

Urca is one of the oldest areas in Rio. Known for its
incredible views of the city, the neighbourhood runs
along Guanabara bay, providing visitors with an
opportunity to watch the sunset from one of Rio’s
greatest natural treasures: Sugarloaf Mountain (Pao de
Acucar). It is said that the locals in Urca are “bon
vivant,” which is one of the reasons the area attracts
people of all styles and ages. Urca is the perfect
