Before we entered our hotel room, we literally dropped our bags and went to this site for the most beautiful sunset and a couple of caiperinga's - what a way to celebrate our first night in Rio. It was awesome.

After a decently long wander through the calm and delightful Urca barrio, you can have a well deserved refreshment at Bar Urca. I prefer the "dehors" version, on the low wall directly on the sea. Get equipped with frozen beer, empadas de camarao and small...More

This review is for the restaurant above the bar. First off, let me say, this is a beautiful location and I love the bar for snacks and beers along the water. The restaurant is a different story however. Overall: very over-priced and highly mediocre seafood...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
