Now that's a weird place. Beautiful views, nice staff, but it feels very 60-70ies, all glories from a former past, including the (Portuguese) food... Why do they have to put flour into every dish they cook? We went there on recommendation, notably to try their...More

One of the best places in town. Great view of the city. Great atmosphere. Tapas-alike var. Just take a drink and some tapas and eat them across the street. The restaurant itself is not worth the effort.

Our meeting point for our sailing lessons with DDrio was right across Bar Urca. We did not wanted to go hungry sailing and Bar Urca is an amazing spot to have lunch or dinner. Delicious food and great service. Highly recommend the shrimp paulista

Went to the restaurant in the second floor (not the bar), really worth it if you like home-cooking style seafood, lots of food, good fish and pulpo, small wine list, big beer selection, staff nice and helpful (even without speaking english)

Don't leave Rio without visiting Urca and especially this Bar where locals gather round for a cold beer and fried typical Caroioca snacks whilst sitting on the promenade and cheering the sunset over the water.

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
