It is a very simple concept. Get your drink/food and sit on the sea wall and enjoy the beautiful views and surrounding atmosphere. The best time to go is at sunset.

We stopped in for a bite to eat and drinks. The wait staff was friendly and accommodating since we had a 5 year old with us. Food was pretty good and drinks were refreshing, but it seemed overpriced. I just wish we would have eaten there during the day. The view is not very exciting at night.

Its a very relaxed place. You just go, get a beer and a few snacks and sit at the wall the opposite side, Its for friends rather than family. They have a restaurant upstairs where you can go with kids or older people.

This place is very close, if you see just the pub, maybe you will not stop. But the atmosphere is really nice. In front of te sea, you can see the Pão de Açucar, and a lot of people drink on the street! I recommend this place for everyone!

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.
