Hostess spoke perfect English in this local spot on a quiet side street. We were seemingly the only tourists but felt very welcome. We sat outside on the patio and watched life pass by. The food was very good, service attentive and our Brazilian wine pleasing. We would go back again.

The place is quite cute and relaxing. There are quite some tables outside that are facing a quite street so we had a really nice dinner there. The food is good and not expensive. I would really reccomend this place.

Very cosy place! However -- the food. Fair to say that the salt cod croquetttes were salt but if there was also any cod in them could not be found out; The mains was a sirloin with vegatables and -- the reason I stopped here: bearnaise sause. When I got my plate, the waiter simply told me that there was... More

We attended this restaurant on the advice of a friend who are here during the World Cup. We were welcomed by very pleasant staff and this was the start of things to come. We had two children with us aged 8 and 10 and they were made very welcome and the menu was explained fully in English to us. The... More

PROS: 1) The restaurant is quite charming (we stayed outdoors: the street and its trees complement the romantic atmosphere of the restaurant); 2) The food is delicious! The dishes are generously seasoned and it's all organic! 3) The staff is very helpful and polite. CONS: 1) Although having had a great meal, I still think it was expensive for two... More

Had the pichana steak burger with Cesar salad and farofa.... Never have had the farofa before, but heard its a... More

I think the burger and the dessert at this restaurant ranks very high on my list of best places to eat. I am generally not excited by dessert, but my very first introduction to pistachio ice-cream has introduced a second love to my flavours of ice-cream. Second only to vanilla, the ice-cream served for dessert was incredibly good. The atmosphere,... More

Via 7 is located at a fancy street and the restaurant decor is very cool.

You also can choose if you want sugar... More
