You can have a dish for 2 or 3 as it comes very well served. Fish is very well cooked with typical Brazilian recipes. The view is exceptional. This is a must do in Rio.

Rio at it's best! Antartica original, pastel camarao com queijo, the sunset, the ledge and the beautiful people of Rio. Pretty much sums up my definition of bar perfection. :) Hands down my favourite bar in the world!

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.

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
