Ate here a couple of times and very tasty for fast food. Large helpings delivered swiftly once ordered. The lunch time sandwiches were also tasty and ample. Worth a visit.

Very good service, but a bit pricey if compared with what you can get around there. Not really child friendly with loud music and not a lot of space for prams etc. Maybe its a better place for people without kids, on a date or on a night out, but it wasn't really for us. Try to get tables not... More

I have been here and a few other Devassas quite a bit. Service is quick and presentation of the meals are very impressive/interesting. It could be a challenge to get seats if you arrive later than 9pm, inside is definitely before that, especially during summer period.

This was during World Cup and things were very busy. While we continually experienced issues with our poor... More

We had snaks - chicken wings, fries and big salad to share. Nothing sophisticated but it was not bad. We did not end up trying the beers that I think this place is famous for

Devassa is a famous bar and restaurant chain in Rio, known specially for making its own beer, which is named after different women's hair colours: blonde, red-hair, nigra, indian, "sarara"… It has an innovative cuisine that uses traditional ingredients from Brazilian regions in a...
