Went to the restaurant in the second floor (not the bar), really worth it if you like home-cooking style seafood, lots of food, good fish and pulpo, small wine list, big beer selection, staff nice and helpful (even without speaking english)

Don't leave Rio without visiting Urca and especially this Bar where locals gather round for a cold beer and fried typical Caroioca snacks whilst sitting on the promenade and cheering the sunset over the water.

The place itself is good but not that extraordinary. It's the location that's really nice. Pastries are good and fresh so grab a few and a couple of ice cold beers and sit down on the wall outside. Very relaxed environment. It's usually packed with...More

Every time I go to Rio - once a year, to visit family - I go to Bar Urca. This venerable old bar serves wonderful food; most importantly, it serves the best 'petiscos' in Rio. You can sit on the sea wall and order food...More

Dishes looked great on the menu, but were actually quite bland. Average service and expensive for what it offers.

Urca is one of the oldest areas in Rio. Known for its
incredible views of the city, the neighbourhood runs
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

Boa noite Paula. Sim, é perto, em até 15 minutos você chega ao bar. Claro que não nesse período de blocos de carnaval. É uma combinação perfeita.
