We tried the "shrimp in a cooked pumpkin" and served it over rice! It was delish! We also shared the picanha(steak) and chestnut rice. I look forward to going again. So many great flavors to experience .

I love the bar, always had a great experience, but I can’t say the same for the restaurant. Went there last Wednesday, and we had one of the worst services I have ever had in Rio. The waiter (on his 40s maybe 50s with glasses)...More

along Guanabara bay, providing visitors with an
opportunity to watch the sunset from one of Rio’s
greatest natural treasures: Sugarloaf Mountain (Pao de
Acucar). It is said that the locals in Urca are “bon
vivant,” which is one of the reasons the area attracts
people of all styles and ages. Urca is the perfect
