Via sete is a really cool restaurant, waiters are always available and fast. When I went there the menu was with not many choices, only one vegetarian. I've tried bacalhau but it was not something really special, not much fish inside the pot and for 99 R$ I was looking for something more. In the end it's nice but nothing... More

Very nice lunch location in central Ipanema, sit on the terrace and enjoy the leafy surroundings. This has vibes of Palermo in Buenos Aires. Food is great, with a decent menu and some very nice salad options - chicken and quinoa was really enjoyable. Staff are very welcoming. All in all a very good restaurant that deserves the strong reviews... More

*The premises are great, with a striking mix of natural materials and a very chilled ambience. So that's the building covered, now for the food. We had the calamari for starters which had a very dry coating and was somewhat chewy .... Definitely had much tastier on our travels and were surprised they weren't much better For mains we both...

Tuna tartar was excellent followed by one of the best wagyu kobu burgers I've had! Proper chunky chips (ask for fries if you prefer). Cocktails also delivered, although the cosmopolitan was a bit sweet! Highly recommend the Three lemon cashasha cocktail... would definitely come again!

The only reason we went - never had eaten it. Ordered, one rare, one well done. Great difference in size on the plate. Well done had burned off a lot of fat. Without a bun, salt or ketchup. Ordered them up and had a satisfaying experience. Certainly expensive-R$70 for aburger.

Choosing to sit centrally in the restaurant helps as waiters trying to get around you near the edge can be a problem! Neverthe less staff were friendly enough, if not quite as friendly as had been suggested by previous visitors. Chicken croquettes to start were a little tasteless. My main course the Salmon Tagliatelle was rich but very tasty. My... More

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.

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.
