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.

Beautifully designed restaurant, food was absolutely superb, the best we had in Brazil by a mile. Good cocktails, excellent menu selection, attentive and friendly staff, very quick service. So good we had to come back, a great place to have our last meal in Rio!

The place is nice, food good, drinks good. All well, but not the extra, final, YES. It is lovely to sit outdoors. The tables are protected by some green bushes. The street is a street with several restaurants and a nice, upmarket area.

A beautiful summer evening in Ipanema. Great patio and even better frozen Caiparinas, Via Sete's take on the famous Brazilian cocktail is an excellent start to the trip.

The food was very nice and the wine was excellent. The strive, however, was pretty bad. Drinks were forgotten twice, plates were literally taken away from the table before the last bit was swallowed, etc. If you wanna be upscale then your service has to live up to it.

My friend and I went to this place for lunch while visiting Rio. They have great service and good food. We had a lot of questions about the menu. The waiter explained with patience and was able to accommodate our needs. Met a friendly local couple there who recommended street parade in Ipanema during the Carnival. The waiter printed a...

The food is good and the staff is nice and polite. But we ordered a pineapple juice that came tasting bad, as if the fruit was rotten. We complained and sent it back. It was charged at the bill, but the good thing is that they got it out after we pointed that to the staff. It took a while... More

Good combination of location, good kitchen and bar, nice outdoor area and friendly service. Not cheap as all Rio. Try to come before 2pm tp avoid line.
