We had lunch at Bar Urca and against all odds found a table with a view on the bay. The place buzzes with life and locals. The food is very tasty. We went for "I am having what they are having" by just checking out other tables and fared really well with some form of Brazilian fish and chips with... More

The view is stunning, and the environment is nice. But the service is terrible, everything is extremely overpriced and the food isn't that good.

We went for the award winning dishes (creamy shrimp recipe in a beautiful whole squash) and, oh my, delicious! Overall great experience with friendly and knowledgeable staff, cozy ambiance and unbeatable view. Best decision to go there by cab because parking was scarce and nobody could tell where the bus route detours were during carnival. Ok to catch the bus... More

I went with a friend on a recomendation, we wanted a little snack and had the tomatoe and palmito salad and grilled shrimps Sao Paulo style to share. Both was so delicious and the portion of both were so big that it turned out to be our dinner ? The waiter was very attentive and friendly. Only downside was that... More

We visited in February 2014. We ate dinner upstairs at the restaurant. We like to eat at local places when we travel, and this place seemed to fit the bill (even though its on TripAdvisor). We arrived around 7:30ish and the place was about half full. By 9 the place was full with people who appeared to be local (we're... More

We then went upstairs to the restaurant for dinner, the food was very good but there was so much of it. I ordered the fish fillet with... More

We were told about this place by our hotel. We took a cab from Ipanema to Bar Urca in the afternoon. They have an English so it was easy to order. The food and drinks were so good. The beer was so cold. You take the food and drinks across the street and sit by the harbor. Great experience. Worth... More
