We were on a stopover with a cruise and a friend took us to this restaurant which overlooks Sugarloaf and the yacht club. Started off with nice canapés and some really good fish dishes. Good to get away from the main tourist places.

Busy but they find a seat for me. It's overlooking the Flamingo where several ships park. Selection are plenty, while not great they;re very decent for a lunch on Saturday

It is a great choice for tourists in Rio (locals as well!) as it has a great view facing Sugar Loaf and Botafogo Bay... The food is nice, but be prepared for the price! Anyway, it's worth it!

The food here is great, the view of the bay really sets this place apart from others. Only criticism is that it was far too hot without fans and air-con in certain parts of the restaurant which did make it a little unbearable. However cannot fault the food.

This is one of the best restaurants I have ever been in Rio de Janeiro !. The view is wonderful, the food is good, atendants (specially the manager) were very kind. Only the view pays for the time we spent there. Maybe the citizens of the place do not valorize the view, but I live in a city where we... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Urca
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 place to take a stroll and appreciate the area’s beautiful architecture, enjoy a cocktail and some delicious seafood pastries at a bar, or bring a bottle of wine and enjoy it while sitting anywhere along the stone seawall known as the “mureta.”
