This is a fine dining restaurant in one of the best streets in Rio de Janeiro (ipanema). Beautiful place with outside and inside dinning options. The food and drinks are great. It is an expensive restaurant but worth it.

Wow. This place was recommended to us from our hotel and it was the best food we've had for weeks. Can so highly recommend this. Steak was cooked perfectly and the flavours were off the chart. Will come back definitely.

This is the first place in the world where I tasted burgers that actually taste like if you are eating a great steak. We went there only twice as we had no more days left ;-)

The service and food was really, really good. I had the Wagyu burger and my kids had other burgers on the menu. My wife loved her salad and overall the meal was a nice touch to pour last night in Rio. I must say the service was fantastic and the manager did a great job of overseeing the restaurant. I... More

Good restaurant to know in Ipanema. The plates are very well presented and tasty (more beautiful than taste). As starters I ate "pastel" and was different if comparable with the traditional one (I prefer the traditional). I tried a meat called Flank Angus with "farofa" and was good. Service ok. The juice are tasteless!

Via sete is a really cool restaurant, waiters are always available and fast. When I went there the menu was with not many choices, only one vegetarian. I've tried bacalhau but it was not something really special, not much fish inside the pot and for 99 R$ I was looking for something more. In the end it's nice but nothing... More

Very nice lunch location in central Ipanema, sit on the terrace and enjoy the leafy surroundings. This has vibes of Palermo in Buenos Aires. Food is great, with a decent menu and some very nice salad options - chicken and quinoa was really enjoyable. Staff are very welcoming. All in all a very good restaurant that deserves the strong reviews... More

*The premises are great, with a striking mix of natural materials and a very chilled ambience. So that's the building covered, now for the food. We had the calamari for starters which had a very dry coating and was somewhat chewy .... Definitely had much tastier on our travels and were surprised they weren't much better For mains we both...

A place for hipsters, who gives value to the senses. The ViaSete was designed 11 years ago to be a counterpoint to the city noise, cement and asphalt. Innovative in essence, simple and sophisticated cuisine, is essentially Rio brand. We serve organic leafy vegetables, will grill meat, fish and poultry, avoiding fried foods and fats. However we are not radicals and believe that happiness is also freedom of choice. We use the best quality ingredients and our chefs are careful professionals who are proud to add love and a homemade touch to dishes they serve. The ViaSete is attentive to people's health and preserve the planet for future generations. We are partners of WWF-Brazil, the world's largest conservation NGOs and for over 10 years recycle cans, glass, paper, cooking oil and plastics.
