Lunched here 3 days in a row...

My travel companions and I enjoyed Via Sete so much, we ate lunch there 3 days in a row during our week in Rio. Though only a few blocks from Ipanema Beach, I got the impression that Via Sete was very much a local favorite and less of a tourist destination. In fact, it was a local colleague who... read more

I went to This exquisite restaurant for the second time after a first visit in 2013. Great atmosphere design and service. Above all: Great food! Try the calamari in tapioca, the red fruit cachacha and the amazing burgers and meats. Fantastic also the appetizer grilled palm heart! Extra bonus: The staff is knowledgeable about gluten and cross-contamination issues, which is... More

Loved this amazing little restaurant in Ipanema with great trendy menu. Recommend the Grilled Hearts of Palm that comes as a side dish. There are options with seafood or meat. The service is very attentive. It's casual and has seats also on the street to enjoy a relaxed dinner with contemporary international music.

Hearty burgers (chicken burger was outstanding), nice ambiance. Highly recommend. This place really fills up around 9 for dinner, so go early to grab a seat.

I had lunch at Via Sete today. Service was exceptionally good (it ay have helped that I was one of the first guests today!) The decor of the restaurant is quite nice. I sat outside and watched life in Ipanema go by. Garcia D'Avila is a trendy urban street so there's loads of fun things to watch as they pass... More

After a Saturday morning spent on the beach we knew it was time for some food and stumbled across this smart looking place right in the heart of Ipanema. The host informed us there would be a wait for a table for two as the place looked very busy but turnover is high and we were seated within just a... More

Via Sete is one of the best restaurants I've eaten at in Rio, much less in the narrow confines of super chic Rua Garcia d'Avila. The service is attentive and friendly. The menu has a wide variety of items, but a focus on ultra gourmet hamburgers that are worth the cost for their taste, the quality of the meat and... More
