Garotta de Urca is a somewhat typical Rio establishment with a relaxed environment and attitude, good food, excellent choppe (though I wish they had dark beer in more places), and a good crowd. Love the relaxed bar crowds in Rio, where young people actually sit talking to each other rather than being glued to cell phones! Only drawback...good luck parking!

This place is open really late and serves fantastic pizzas. It has a view over the sea and the tables are under a veranda but outdoors. The staff are very attentive and its not expensive. Go there and if your not looking for something flashy you ll love it. Buses to Copa , Ipanema` Centro stop round the corner.

Good bar food at a reasonable price. Typical of Brazil, they put a lot of olive oil n everything. Sandwiches are very good. Beers are great.

Garota da urca is located in the Urca neighbourhood, right by the beach. It is a great place for cold beer, caipirinhas and delicious food. We tried the fried sausages for starters and the Mix Grill (accompanied with Rice, Farofa and vinaigrette salad) for main course. The portions are very big and is more than sufficient for two people.

Beautiful setting. You can watch the sun go down behind Christ over a beer from here. The bar snacks are ok if you eat meat and the barbecue thing they do seems very popular in the early evening. Not too pricey, definitely a good option for a pit-stop.

We were doing a walking tour of Urca and needed a quick bite and drink. Bar Urca had a waiting time so we continued on and stopped here. We had draft and bottled beer, french fries and manioc fries and good people watching. Busy, pleasant place. We sat on the deck and looked out over beach and water as well.

We had a great meal here. We got a mixed grill and I was surprised at how hot the grill was that they brought to the table. You could never get away with an open flame like that in the US. Good service. Nice Chuppas. Great way to people watch. Try to get a table close to the front.

I had dinner here on a Saturday night and enjoyed it very much. The food was good and so was the service. The options on the menu were just perfect. I highly recommend.

Discovered this place while on a morning stroll through Urca and returned for dinner the next day and lunch on our final day in Rio. Excellent menu, food quality and quantity. Great local atmosphere within and without. Superb value.

I grew up in Urca and have been going there for many years... I went back with a friend a few weeks ago and was very satisfied with everything. Don't expect speedy service this place is more of a chill environment, come with time. picanha a brasileira is great, so its the fish with shrimp sauce. Generous portions and quality... More
