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.

Easy dining. Good staff.

Via Sete is always an option for a good atmosphere and food. Nothing special on the menu but good quality food. The staff is fantastic.

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

Our guide, who lives in Ipanema, gave us the address...and she was absolutely right: great food, very friendly staff and a cosy atmosphere. And don't miss their Caipirinhas. The choice of food has a good variety and is really tasty, fresh and the meat (we had tenderloin) was done to perfection: juicy and tender.

Very friendly waiting staff. I chose the beef burger with Caesar salad and grilled vegetables as did my niece. This was very tasty. My friend chose chicken with the same accompaniments but unfortunately the chicken was not cooked in the middle and had to be returned to the kitchen. Unfortunately, the 3 of us suffered from bad diarrhoea following eating... More

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!

Excellent palm hearts, salmon steak and passion fruit dessert! Salmon stake is large enough for 2 (ask them to split it).

Been there with few friends and what a surprise. It's good, it worth the venue. The menu is quite large although you have so many choices. The food is good (not excellent), well served, and 2$$ for the rate status. They have great wine from Argentina. Will go back there for sure.

I have been in R io several times for business and Via Sette is to me a must go place always. The atmosphere of the place is relaxed and lively at the same time. The dishes are truly tasty (don't miss the hamburgers especially the Otto e mezzo version...memorable). The Crema de papaya is a fantastic dessert to try.

One thing brazilians do well is meat. This location is no exception. The Viasete "take" on flesh-food entails smaller portion sizes than the traditional steakhouse. And the options are either with bread "pao" or without. Basically, burger or steak. You can actually order the equivalent of a filet mignon burger patty all by its lonesome... Not to worry, the accompanying... More
