I will start by the neighborhood where it's located: Urca. On one side it ends at the bottom of Urca Montain and the Sugarloaf. On the other side it has a wonderful view of Guanabara Bay with an expetacular sunset. It's an old and quiet neighborhood with a atmosphere that some how remembers me the small towns on the French Riviera. It is quiet and lovely. Them there is this one bar with this view, because it's mostly (almost exclusively) a residential neighborhood. At this place you will get a beer served on ice cold traditional Brazilian way. You will have a seat on this small wall that protects the sidewalk from the rocky shore and appreciate the atmosphere. That's one of the places you understand how simple things can be so pleasant.

A spectacular view with the best food. We speak no Portuguese so ordering is a real challenge. The waiter was very helpful and we had the best experience with a incredible view. This restaurant is within walking distance of Sugar Loaf Mt.

Experience 'carioca' lifestyle with threesome combination: beer, snacks and sunset. In a very casual mood, you can go right after a day in the beach, wearing bikinis and flip flops.

I would have rated this good, but there is no option. Nice place for few chopps. Quite popular with locals. You can take your drinks and sit on the low wall and enjoy the view to the sea.

Perfect to go drink some beer while eating some appetizers. The sunset is beautiful, just by the bay with the smell of the sea.
