We found this beach in a desperate attempt to find a safer beach than Copacabana, Ipanema etc. Spotted this on the map as we prepared our visit to the sugar loaf. We went for a swim/relax there after the Sugarloaf and we were so happy...More

The views from the restaurant are stunning with the Pão de Açucar in the background. It is obviously quite a popular self-service restaurant with a very good selection of hot and cold dishes including plenty of salads. There are quite often queues to enter depending...More

People never notice, but very close to the Sugar Loaf there is a restaurant that belongs to a militery club called CIRCULO MILITAR. A wonderful variety of the main brazilian dishes are waiting for us, the food is plenty and the flavours are simply unique....More

Nice place, head for the outside section, with stunning view to the beachlife at Praia Vermelha and The Sugarloaf mountain. Good food, seafood and meat and good service, one of my favourites in Rio.

We have been here several times with friends and with a large group of colleagues. This is a typical carioca choppe place with fried appetizers (the bolinhas de bacalhau are excellent), pretty good pizza and the standard main dishes. The reason to come here for...More

This cafe is ideally situated in the quaint Urca region of Rio, a short distance from the Sugarloaf cablecar boarding station (walk toward the beach). The main reason to visit is the sparkling up close view of the iconic mountain from its windows and terrace....More

Wide range of meals in a perfect location. A lunch for two next to the beach in Rio for 52 R$ is unbeatable. This self-service restaurant on Praia Vermelha offers a perfect place for having lunch before / after visiting Urca and Sugarloaf.

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
