Most tourists only stop in Urca long enough to take the cable car up Sugar Loaf mountain, but this quiet, gentile neighborhood is well worth a few hours of your time. Bar e Restaurante Urca is the perfect spot to stop and soak up charm of the neighborhood, with outdoor tables and chairs allowing relaxed drinking and dining right next to the bay. Bobbing boats and soaring gulls compete for attention with delicious fish and seafood dishes. Bar snacks, such as the cod and potato balls, are very good here too.
