“Great View”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

Fantastic food, either if you are in or outdoors the view is great,you must try 'pastel de camarao' pastry filled with shrimp, a lot of shrimp, after having some of those you can order a meal that will be enough to at list 4 people, so in the end is not very expensive.

“Theres nothing like it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

Grab a beer, sit with your friends and chat. Watch the sunset.
You will find lots of tourists, but most of the people that goes there are cariocas. There's no luxury..... But the view... wow!

“What is the big deal about?!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

We went to Bar Urca for lunch based on rave reviews. When we arrived I genuinely thought we must have the wrong place. The restaurant sits on a small road that is next to the sea but if you're going purely for a good view I'd say there are no doubt thousands of better views in Brazil to enjoy whilst eating or drinking. I ordered the fish of the day with brocoli rice thinking it would be a relatively healthy option. However it came battered and very greasy. I felt so sick after it! My husband ordered some form of steak wrapped in cheese and ham which came with rice and fries. He enjoyed his but I think he must have just been very hungry! The restaurant itself looks grubby and old. I feel I am completely missing something here reading all the rave reviews about this place as I truly didn't think it had any redeeming features!!

Bar Urca is a nice experience in Rio.Depending on the day, have to wait a lot, always very crowd. Food is good but not spectacular .The decoration is simple.

We didn't dine at the restaurant, just got some snacks from their take away bar which were great. It's a good stop to/from Sugar Loaf. Nice walk along the water . Cheap and cheerfull!
