Too few of Rio's eating and drinking spots make the most of the city's extraordinary natural beauty, but Bar e Restaurant Urca is one place that really utilizes its location's potential to the full. Meals and drinks are prepared inside the restaurant itself, while tables and chairs are situated across the road, right by the waves. Colorful bobbing fishing boats complete the scene, as drinkers and diners relax in this tranquil neighborhood. Urca serves good, traditional Brazilian meals (including a Saturday feijoada), and there's also a good range of bar snacks and light meals – the cod balls and the seafood soup are both delicious.
