One of the most lovely, easy, fun and GOOD places to eat & drink--not just in Rio, but anywhere. When I think of that thick sweet salty cheesy shrimp chowder served in a pumpkin the size of a wedding cake, when I recall my friend's...More

Went to Bar Urca with my girlfriend's cousin who's lived in Rio for quite some time. She ordered the shrimp in a pumpkin which was delicious. Quite a unique dish, I don't think I've seen that anywhere else.

Really like this spot. As is high quality and genuine food in a very relaxing ambiance. Also not very touristic so it gives quite a true carioca feeling. Have a beer and a snack outside and up for a seat down meal.

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

vivant,” which is one of the reasons the area attracts
people of all styles and ages. Urca is the perfect
