We ate lunch in the restaurant here after a morning of sailing. The weather had been a little mixed so were looking forward to something warm and comforting and Bar Urca was a great choice. The portions are large so three of us shared camarao...More

The Urca Bar is a legacy of the beauty of URCA after its construction. It is a Bar that has been entering the routine of Cariocas over the years and much of it has to do with the informal conditions of the place. Sure, the...More

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.

incredible views of the city, the neighbourhood runs

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
