Via 7 is located at a fancy street and the restaurant decor is very cool. The best to try is a lovely( and tasty) drink, made by fresh fruits and cachaca(or vodka, or sake etc) "Geladinho de maracuja and mango with cachaca" ( frozen of mango and assion fruit) is my fav! You also can choose if you want sugar... More

Had a late lunch here on a TUE afternoon. Place was packed. Very good food, lots of selections to choose from. Everything we saw come out of the kitchen looked so appetizing and well presented. The burgers are fantastic. Paid about R$ 145 for the 3 of us, about $60.

Via Sete was a great find! We visited this place several times durning our stay. Great fresh and delicious food, salads were amazing so too were the juices! Very reasonable prices! Well worth a visit for lunch! Best food we had eaten on Rio! We had bad luck but this place was great!

This is my fav resto in Brazil, I still frequent it nearly daily as I have done for the last 8 years and spent a fortune there, constantly taking all my guest there, so I have a RIGHT to criticize so things don't completely downhill. They had the best burger in Rio until recently, some brain box decided to change... More

This is a great restaurant in a great location in Ipanema. The quality of the meat was superb and there were great variations. My partner is vegetarian and she absolutely loved the veggie burger. It is always very busy so be prepared to wait, but the service is very good and the location is great.

Give this one a try, fair prices and good quality food. Service was notably friendly and patient with English speaking tourist. Burgers are my favorite so far, with unique preparations getting my attention; normally don't order burgers but the description got me to try one. I was very happy I did. Calamari was unique and I also recommend trying too.

We stumbled upon Via Sete during a rainstorm. We originally had plans at another restaurant, but due to the rainstorm and flooding, they closed, leaving us in the pouring rain trying to figure out our next step. Despite the huge storm, we felt that Via Sete welcomed us with open arms. They had staff toweling the floor to keep the... More

Located along one of my favorite streets in Ipanema, Rue Garcia D’Avila, is Via Sete. You can sit inside or outside. The crowd is young, the food is delicious, the prices are reasonable, and the service is efficient and fast. Unlike most restaurants and hotels in Rio, the waiters speak English. The space is small and the tables are crammed... More
