Great food and big portions. Nice to sit by the water and enjoy. The trout was amazing. The pork chops were just okay. Ended up here by accident

this is where the poet wrote the iconic words that are known around the world. The Girl From Ipanima Spirit is still there. The food is splendid, huge choice, attractive presentations . This is a must visit location.

Location is perfect for a quite dinner, overlooking the beach and the ocean, has a nicely decorated terrace and kind staff. They serve traditional brasilian meat, and actualy bring it to you on a little barbecue on the table itself! So you can burn it to the degree you want it (they bring it half blooded, so you actualy finish... More

Garota da Urca is located close to the little beach in Urca - a nice spot if you want to relax and look at people down at the beach - and have a drink or a meal. We stayed in a room close to the place and visited four times over ten days. The food quality was medium - at... More

Garota da Urca not only has a beautiful view, a warm bar-like environment, but also fantastic food. The best pick is certainly the Picanha which comes with 1kg of meat and a grill which you use to prepare it the way you like - it never disappoints. The place is ideal for either lunch or dinner, but be warned that... More

The picanha is delicious. They have some very good appetizers. Try their pizzas. The prices are not very cheap but the the view from there is very pretty.

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.
