We were looking for a quick lunch before heading to the airport to catch our flight. Food tasted ok. The drinks were even better. Interesting combos. We visited on May 18, 2016.

I stopped on a sunday afternoon whilst walking along Copacabana. I've been to the Devassa in Ipanema on previous trips to Rio and had always been impressed, especially with their Bem Loura beer - the tastiest beer I've had in Brazil.

I ordered a big plate of everything because I wanted to try chicken, beef, onion rings, sausages and more. And it was the biggest disappointed in rio!!! Everything was super dry and tasted nothing. Stay far away from this place

My friend and I visited this location and it was amazing! I had the steak with Alfredo pasta, but the sauce is not like back home in America which made it even better! Our waiter was great and attentive! I highly recommend this place!

After checking out a Movie at Largo do Machado's Kinoplex, went to this Restaurant for dinner! We finished watching a Copa America game while drinking some cold Devassa beer. Pretty fun place and decent service...Bom Apetito!!!

Ate here a couple of times and very tasty for fast food. Large helpings delivered swiftly once ordered. The lunch time sandwiches were also tasty and ample. Worth a visit.

Very good service, but a bit pricey if compared with what you can get around there. Not really child friendly with loud music and not a lot of space for prams etc. Maybe its a better place for people without kids, on a date or on a night out, but it wasn't really for us. Try to get tables not... More
