Unpretentious restaurant but with a perfect draft beer (ask for a "Chopp da Brahma") and delicious reasonably priced meals. Lots of options for each day of the week, with pasta, seafood, meat and poultry. There is also a number of varied salads to choose from.

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
