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

Via 7 is one of my preferred places to eat when in Rio. The staff is amazing and friendly, most of them working there for a long time . It is a place that i can go alone, feeling at home always. Located in a nice block in Ipanema, has a cozy atmosphere and reasonable prices. Food is always very... More

After being recommended Via Sete by a friend, I decided to give it a try. We were made to feel so welcome, although we did have to wait for a table which is often a good sign. The service was spot on and the food was delicious, up there with the best. Can't fault this place at all. They had... More

This restaurant was just a couple of blocks from our hotel. The first night we walked by, it was packed with a line up, so we figured we had to try it. Next night (Sunday) not as busy. Staff all spoke English & they had English menus (not our experience with other restaurants in the area).Ordering a protein main &... 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.

We loved this small, popular place in Ipanema. The outside tables are a little tight (you won't be discussing anything deeply personal!), but the food was very tasty and good value. The wine, however, was quite pricey, but then this is the main restaurant street in Ipanema. We returned for an early dinner before we headed to the airport for... More

Dear Mr. Kerem, We have seen at Trip Advisor your comment regarding your visit and disappointment at our restaurant in Ipanema. Indeed we don’t charge 15% service tax for our clients. This is prohibited in our restaurant, we suggest 11%, which is complimentary. We don’t know if there was a miscalculation on our side (or both) but we fully understand... More

we ordered a pasta for the kids and two grilled fish. Fish were uncooked and after sending back to the kitchen they were burnt on the outside and still unbeatable. I should say they did try to compensate us and make us feel better, but we were just tired and unimpressed and continued our dinner in a nice place next... More
