Fodor's Review

Dine indoors in this relaxed spot, or make like the locals and enjoy a snack alfresco, propped against the harbor wall across the street: the sea wall doubles as a makeshift table, and waiters run to and fro delivering orders. You'll have a stunning backdrop to your light meal—the panorama takes in bobbing boats, framed by a clear view of Christ the Redeemer. Enjoy a cold beer and some finger food while you contemplate the menu—the salgadinhos (little savory snacks) are a strong suit, with the shrimp pastries a particular standout. More substantial dishes can be enjoyed upstairs in the restaurant and include some good Portuguese-influenced fare. Bar e Restaurante Urca breaks with tradition and serves feijoada on Fridays instead of Saturdays, and at a good price for what you get: R$68 for two.
