Bar da Urca is one of those places that you feel comfortable and perfect to go with friends and family. You take a beer and a snack and enjoy the beautiful view of Enseada de Botafogo. Above the bar, you find a small and cozy restaurant that is perfect for having a delicious meal. My tip is trying "Camarão na... More

Cool place to hang out by the sea side and have an ice cold beer with pasties and fried seafood. Sit by the sea wall and enjoy

Stopped here after some time on top of sugarloaf for a bite to eat and a couple beers. We got a few pastries and then sat outside on the sidewalk with all of the other locals who were grabbing a drink. Good place to enjoy some down time looking out at the water with some good food.

A local friend has recommended this restaurant as one of the best in South Rio for the sea food. The gourmet experience was really nice although I only tried the most simple fish (I think it was called the choice of the chef). The ambient was a disappointment (a minor one, not a huge), but service was also great. All... More

If you are looking for a traditional eatery this is the place. We read about it on line and visited for the first time and ate a couple of snacks on the seafront which were excellent and decided to visit again. Our visit for lunch was excellent. We had a couple of the pastry starters and the Shrimp Risotto. Fantastic.... More

Took Uber over to have a drink and a quick snack. It's a lovely authentic place with good food friendly people and awesome view. I would definitely go back.

The ambience is quite nice, ask for a window where you will have view to the lake. The food is really nice, ask for the Shrimps and squid..they are excellent...and service very good.

Cold beer and good "botequim" snacks. Enjoy Urca´s "mureta" ("malecón") and beatiful Rio scenery while chatting with friends or while dating someone.

We stumbled across this little gem in our Lonely Planet book and it was a lovely escape from the hustle and bustel of Rio. We sat with the many locals on the seafront eating our chicken and sipping bear. The food was so tasty, not cheap but worth it, and the beers we chilled. An excellent place to see Rio... More

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.
