My son and I had eaten at the Devassa Centro with a friend who lives in Rio. We happened upon the location in Copacabana by accident and, based on our great experience at the Centro location, we decided to enjoy dinner there. 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

I'm not a beer fan, but in Devassa Bar and Restaurant I can really appreciate it. 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...

I have always liked the place. But today I ordered a PICADINHA and I found a small cockroach in the sauce. That had never hapenned in my life anywhere! The place's reply was "We are embarassed, but we cannot control that". Sorry, but I strongly recommend not to eat there.

This restaurant was the best option near my hotel, the Golden Tulip Ipanema Plaza. The beer was really good and the food was pretty good too. I ate lunch once and dinner twice. Definitely recommend it. The food is better and the prices are more reasonable than the other options nearby. Try the shrimp risotto. Very tasty.

This place, although once inside, easy to forget you're not in the U.S., is really impressive. They brew their own beer which is delicious. There was a dark stout that was so delicious and creamy. although all the food we ordered was amazing, there was a dish called a "muchacha" that was so awesome. It resembled a quesadilla filled with... More

Devassa is a great restaurant for a reasonable all you can eat buffet in Ipanema.There are a variety of hot dishes,salad bar and desserts plus an alacarte menu.It is very crowded however.One has to squeeze in between the tables and the food.

I went to this restaurant trying to get a taste of some local cuisine. I was a little disappointed with the amount of food that I was served. I order a churrasco mixto which included steak, rice and black beans. The churrasco was really small it look to me it was more a appetizer rather than a main entree. If... More
