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.

Fresh food, amazing ambiance, real Rio experience

Fancy some grilled steak, crunchy caramelized crunchy chicken burger or steak tartare? So head to Via Sete. Perhaps the best is to seat outdoors (indoors has a smelly woody that is uncomfortable), order a spicy tomato juice then go for the drinks and meal. It is pricey but the quality of food is... read more

An excellent restaurant in a good location and easy to find. The staff are friendly, very helpful and the service was prompt. The food was delicious and the portion sizes are generous. To try: the steak. The coffee deserves a mention too. Both are very good. Clean toilets too, which is always a plus.

We where walking around and we decided to try via Sete. The food looked and tasted fresh. Everything was done and served as we ordered. The waiters were friendly and courteous. Best of all they had English menu for people who have not mastered the local language.

Food was on point. Service was excellent. Atmosphere was perfect. Loved this restaurant. The caipirinhas were the best i've had in Rio. We had the tuna steak and beef tenderloin and they were incredible. One of the best meals i've had. Coming back next week before we leave Rio.
